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" and gender requirements in staffing involved in urine testing.
