Saliva Alcohol Screen
Saliva Alcohol Tests
Need to buy an alcohol test? Our Alcohol Saliva Test Strip is a rapid, sensitive method to detect the presence of alcohol in saliva. These test strips have a swab at the tip that once saturated with saliva will provide a numeric approximation of relative blood alcohol level.
Why Test Alcohol in Saliva
The salivary glands produce saliva which is an excellent vehicle to detect Ethanol from drinking hard liquor, wine or beer. It is well established that the concentration of alcohol in saliva is very close to that of the blood, making saliva the preferred specimen for alcohol testing. This allows for greater detection sensitivity than the breathalyzer testing method. This alcohol test strip is a very simple 2 minute test requiring no instrumentation, calibration or special training to be used effectively. It is convenient enough to be used any time, any place.
Sensitivity of the Saliva Alcohol Test
The saliva alcohol test approximates the blood alcohol concentration (BAC). The scale being tested ranges from 0.0 mg/100 ml which is a negative result up to 300 mg/100 ml, which is .30% (Nearly 4 times the legal limit in the USA).
