Alcohol Saliva Screen Test
We carry two alcohol saliva screen tests:
Alco Screen Alcohol Saliva Test: Our Alcohol Saliva test is intended for use as a rapid, highly sensitive alcohol test to detect the presence of alcohol in saliva and to provide an approximation of blood alcohol concentration. It may also be used to non-quantitatively detect the presence of alcohol in many other fluids, such as soft drinks, blood serum, water, etc. It was designed and patented in 1988 as a simple, cost-effective solution to screen for alcohol concentrations. With over 10 million tests, our test has proven to be the leading alcohol screening device in the field.
Alco Screen Alcohol Saliva Test-DOT Approved: Our Alcohol Saliva test is the simplest, most cost effective method of monitoring for alcohol consumption in your ZERO TOLERANCE testing program. Alco-Screen 02 is so effective that it has been tested and approved by the US Department of Transportation (DOT) for required testing of all transportation and safety sensitive employees for blood alcohol concentrations above the federally mandated zero tolerance level of 0.02% .

When alcohol is metabolized in liver, it forms ethyl glucuronide (EtG). Hence its presence in the blood is an indication of consumption of alcohol. Saliva alcohol test provides a semi-quantitative approximation of blood alcohol concentration (BCA). It is one of the non intrusive methods which provide pretty accurate results. The Saliva Alcohol detection test is based on the principle of alcohol biomarkers, which are only produced due to alcohol metabolism. Actually, there is a compound called glucuronic acid which is present in the liver. When ethyl alcohol is consumed, it is metabolized in the liver where it combines with that glucuronic acid & forms Ethyl glucuronide as a final product. Similarly, Ethyl Sulphate is also produced as a byproduct. Now, alcohol dissipates within few hours of its consumption but this Ethyl glucuronide & Ethyl Sulphate residues remain in the system for as long as 80 hours & can be detected easily in the laboratory as both ETG & ETS are quantifiable with Liquid Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry. These metabolites also show up in the saliva with in a few hours after alcohol consumption. This is the reason saliva can be considered as a promising sample for alcohol testing. The ETG/ETS detection can not be masked by any illnesses, for example, urinary tract infections or diabetes. One can even use some home testing devices along with calorimetric test strips to find an approximate blood alcohol concentration. Some of these kits are able to detect the BCA levels up to 0.02-0.30%. It is often suggested not to eat or drink any thing 15 minutes prior to the test.
