Oral fluids specimen collection provides a unique solution for workplace drug testing. Oral fluids testing offers the benefit of having a non-invasive collection process which can be administered onsite, witnessed by a manager and confirmed at an approved laboratory. The collection of oral fluids reduces the opportunity for substituted specimens and tampering, which can include taking adulteration products, switching samples, or the over-consumption of liquids to cause dilute specimens. Results show drug substances currently in the system, which is similar to a blood test.
