Oral fluid drug screen
Oral drug testing is an alternative to urine testing. Some of the many benefits are that it’s difficult to cheat the test, the process is always under observation, and less intrusive. And they can be used almost anywhere, as no bathrooms are required. Results are quick and conclusive.
These drug tests are available in four variations:
- Five-panel oral – Cocaine, Amphetamines, Opiates, Marijuana, and Methamphetamine.
- Six-panel oral – Cocaine, Amphetamines, Methamphetamine, Opiates, Marijuana, and Benzodiazepines.
- Seven-panel oral – Cocaine, Amphetamines, Opiates, Marijuana, Phencyclidine, and Alcohol.
- Ten-panel oral – Amphetamines, Buprenorphine, Benzodiazepines, Cocaine, Methamphetamine, Methadone, Opiates, Oxycodone, Phencyclidine, and Marijuana.
The testing process takes less than six minutes with a window of detection from a few hours to two to three days, depending on the drug.
It is the perfect device to implement a full proof drug test anywhere and at any time without the need for additional equipment or bathroom facilities. The oral drug screen kit is compact in design and is easy to store with a shelf life of up to 18 months. One of the significant benefits compared to a urine test is the donor cannot cheat the test.

How to use the T-Cube oral fluid drug screen:
The device is straightforward to use, needing the donor to place the foam applicator into their mouth for just a few minutes. The administrator sets the applicator back into the oral cube. This process squeezes out the saliva so the testing assay can absorb the fluid. In less than ten minutes, the results appear on the face of the cube.
Remove the test cube and the sponge collector from the foil pouch by tearing at the notch. Place the test cube upright on a level surface.
Put the sponge end of the collector in your mouth to collect oral fluid for about 3 minutes or until a red color appears on the saturation indicator. Do not chew or suck on the sponge. If the color on the saturation indicator has not turned red by 7 minutes, repeat the collection using a new device, beginning with Step 1.
Open the test cube and place the saturated oral fluid collector inside the test cube. Press the sponge collector down firmly until it reaches the bottom of the test cube then tightly close the cube lid compressing the sponge. Technician dates and initials the security seal and places security seal over the cube lid. Keep test cube upright on a flat surface and follow Step 4.
Interpreting Drug Test Results:
Read results at 5 minutes. Do not read after 5 minutes. A negative result is identified by the appearance of two-color lines. The intensity of the lines does not matter. A positive result is identified by the appearance of a line in the C region on the test strip and no line in the T region. If no lines appear the result is invalid. Repeat the analysis with a new test.
Step 5 (option)
Interpreting Alcohol Test Result:
Read results at 2 minutes. Do not read after 2 minutes.
NEGATIVE: No color changes on the reaction pad.
POSITIVE: Compare the color of the reaction pad with the provided color chart to estimate the approximate blood alcohol level.
NEGATIVE. Two lines appear. *The top line is the control line (C), the other line below is the test line (T). This indicates the result is negative and suggests that the drug concentration was below the detectable level.
*NOTE: Consider a negative even when a faint distinguishable color line is visible. The shade of the (T) line will vary, but noticeable.
POSITIVE. Only one color (C) line appears. The apparent (T) line is not visible. This positive result indicates that the drug concentration is above the cut-off level.
INVALID. If no control line appears, it indicates there is insufficient specimen volume. Review the procedure and repeat the process using a new device. If the problem persists, discontinue using the lot and immediately contact us.
