OralAQ Oral-AQ™ is a rapid screening device for the detection of multiple drugs of abuse in human saliva. Oral-AQ™ is available for the screening of Amphetamine, Opiates, Cocaine, Methamphetamine/Ecstasy (MDMA), Benzodiazepines or Phencyclidine (PCP), and Marijuana (parent THC only) in 5-10 minutes.

Drug of Abuse
Cut-off Level
Amphetamine 50
Opiates 25
Cocaine 20
Methamphetamine/MDMA 50/75
Benzodiazepines 5
Phencyclidine 10
Parent THC (non-metabolite) 25

Oral-AQ™ integrates the drug screening platform with a detachable sample retention cup. When a saliva sample is added to the testing device, residual oral fluid will automatically flow into the sample retention cup, which can then be separated from the main test device, sealed with the provided cap, and labeled with the donor's identification number and date. The sample retention cup can be stored or transported for confirmatory GC/MS or LC/MS analysis. Oral-AQ™ is suitable for use in a variety of locations, and is particularly ideal for on-site testing.

What are the advantages of oral fluid testing when compared to other drug screening methods?

1. Difficult to adulterate sample
Oral fluid is typically collected directly by the test administrator. This "face to face" collection method makes it very difficult for donors to adulterate their saliva sample.

2. Sample availability
Since saliva is a readily available specimen, obtaining a sufficient amount of oral fluid for testing is usually a simple task. This allows for the possibility of repeated or multiple sample collections. However, other comparable specimens are not as readily available as oral fluid. Urine collection can be difficult when a donor lacks urine accumulation in the bladder, or if a donor is unable to void urine due to health issues. Hair collection can also present a sample sufficiency challenge if a donor lacks hair.

3. Detects recent drug use
Oral fluid tests detect more recent drug use, when compared to urine or hair tests. Studies have shown that drug concentrations in oral fluid may better reflect free plasma concentrations than other comparable specimens.

4. Easy and fast sample collection
Oral fluid collection is usually completed in a matter of minutes and does not require any special facilities or equipment. Other comparable specimens may have special handling and waste disposal procedures. In addition, urine collection usually requires a collection supervisor and restroom.

5. Eliminates concerns about invasion of privacy
Supervised urine collections are often considered an invasion of privacy. Oral fluid testing eliminates the "invasiveness" involved in urine testing.
