We Offer Oral (Saliva) Toxicology Testing in Houston

Our Houston medical testing center performs Oral (Saliva) Toxicology Tests.

Oral Toxicology Testing is designed to detect and identify various legal and illegal drugs in one’s system. This is the least invasive form of drug screening and is highly effective at detecting recent drug use. Although Oral Toxicology is uncommon, it offers an alternative method of drug screening. This test carries the same purpose as a Urine Toxicology.

Urine Toxicology is more common for drug of abuse screening and confirmation. However, Oral Toxicology can be used if a patient is unable to produce enough urine for a Urine Toxicology.

How Is The Test Performed?

The test is carried out with a collection device, an oral fluid drug test kit. The collection process of this test is very quick. The patient simply puts the device under their tongue to collect a saliva sample.​

There are two tests for Oral Toxicology, one is for screening and the other is for confirmation. The screening test provides a basic positive or negative answer regarding a patient having drugs in their system. Whereas the confirmation test can determine the dosage amount in a patient’s system.​

The confirmation test uses an analysis technology called Liquid Chromatography-mass Spectrometry (LC-MS). The machine is incredibly sensitive and requires extensive training before use. This piece of technology is something you will not find in many labs. However, as we are a certified high-complexity lab, Auspicious Laboratory offers this method of confirmation testing.

Reading The Results:
For Screening tests, the drug testing kit results will either be Positive or Negative. A negative result will appear if drugs are detected below the cutoff value. Whereas a positive result will appear if drugs are detected above the cutoff value.​

A result is Negative if a red colored line appears in the control region of the test. The color and density of this red line may vary. If no red line appears at all, then the result is Positive. It should be noted that a red line should appear in the control region to indicate the test is performing how it should.​

All in all, if two red lines are present then the test is accurate and provided a negative result. However, if no red lines appear at all then the test may need to be carried out again for accuracy.​

For Confirmation testing, the results are a quantity of how much a specific drug is in a patient’s system.
