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 forsubstituted 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.
