IMPORTANT: Test devices must be at room temperature (15-30°C) before testing. These are basic procedure descriptions, please refer to the detailed product insert when performing the actual test.
1. Bring the sealed pouch to room temperature before opening. Remove the test device from the pouch and use it as soon as possible. Check the expiration date on the product pouch. Remove the test cap exposing the collection pad wick. 2. Insert the collection pad end of the device into the subject’s mouth. Keep the opposite end of the device angled downward to ensure good flow (also refer to the procedure card). 3. Instruct the subject to move the collection pad from top to bottom of the tongue and back again filling the collection pad with saliva. Keep the pad in the subject’s mouth for about 1-3 minutes until the collection pad is completely saturated with saliva.4. When migration of saliva or any pink/burgundy color appears in the result window,remove the device from the subject’s mouth and replace the cap onto the collection pad end of the device. Lay the device on a flat surface Total time from the start of the test to the appearance of the C line depends on the saliva production and the viscosity of the saliva of the individual. Start timing once the C line is visible in the test window. Read results 5-7 minutes after the C line appears.
INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS
Wait 5-7 minutes after the control line (C) appears for test results to fully develop. Test results are read by observing and scoring whether red/pink lines develop on the test result panel as present or absent. Complete absence of a test line indicates a positive test. Development of a test line, no matter how faint, indicates a negative result for the labeled drug or drug metabolite. No correlation or assumptions should be drawn on the color or intensity of test lines. Intensity and color will vary line to line in the test panel and this result is both usual and expected.

Saliva Confirms unique design makes on-site saliva drug screening simple by eliminating the need to handle potentially messy bodily fluids, embarrassing collection observation, and the possibility of sample adulteration
