Saliva Drug Test – 10 panel swabs
A Saliva Drug Test – 10 Panel Swab is a diagnostic tool designed for the detection of multiple drugs in a person’s saliva. The “10 Panel” refers to the number of different drug classes or substances the test can identify. This type of test is commonly used for drug screening in various settings, including workplaces and clinical environments.
How it’s Used:
- Collection of Saliva: The person being tested is provided with a swab, which they place in their mouth to collect a saliva sample. The swab is usually placed between the cheek and gums for a specified period.
- Saturation of Swab: The swab is left in the mouth until it becomes saturated with saliva, ensuring an adequate sample for testing.
- Insertion into Test Device: The swab is then inserted into a testing device, where it comes into contact with the testing strips or reagents specific to each drug being screened.
- Activation of Test: The test is activated, and the saliva reacts with the testing strips to produce visible lines or color changes, indicating the presence or absence of specific drugs.
How Results are Read:
After the specified reaction time (usually a few minutes), the test results are read based on the appearance of lines on the testing device:
- Negative Result: If a line appears next to each drug panel on the testing device, it indicates a negative result, suggesting the absence of the corresponding drugs.
- Positive Result: The absence of a line next to a specific drug panel suggests a positive result, indicating the presence of that particular drug in the saliva sample.
It’s important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully for accurate and reliable results. Positive results may need to be confirmed through more specific testing methods. Interpretation of results should ideally be done by trained professionals.
