If you think drug testing in Tasmania is about urine samples and test strips, have we got a surprise for you!
While many drug testing providers still rely on this old method of conducting drug testing, Integrity Sampling recommends saliva drug testing, for its speed, accuracy, privacy and other advantages. And we’ve got the hi-tech equipment to make it happen!
Saliva drug testing process
Integrity Sampling use the Drager DrugTest 5000 to conduct all its saliva drug testing. It’s a mobile drug testing unit that analyses a person’s saliva for traces of opiates (including codeine morphine and heroin), cannabis, cocaine, amphetamines, methamphetamines and benzodiazepines. The process is simple, quick, accurate and, for the person being tested, non-intrusive.
- The person being tested rubs a collection device between their cheek and gums.
- The collection device is inserted into the Drager DrugTest 5000 for analysis.
- Evaluation of the sample begins immediately.
- The result is displayed in 4 minutes.
Widely used and approved
Integrity Sampling uses the Drager DrugTest 5000 for all its workplace drug testing in Tasmania and other locations around Australia. The technology is also used by police forces around the world to conduct roadside drug testing. This includes some police forces in Australia.
The Drager DrugTest 5000 claims an accuracy of greater than 99%, a claim that has been put to the test by many notable organisations. This includes Australia’s Department of Forensic Medicine at Monash University and the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine. They tested the Drager DrugTest 5000 for its ability to detect a range of drugs. The Drager DrugTest 5000 passed the tests and was given the study’s tick of approval.
