How can I choose a high quality “Point of Care” drug test device/kit?


Just because a product has been “CE” marked is not a sign of quality. In fact, there have been cases where the CE mark has been falsely applied (i.e. not actually CE registered). In addition to CE marking, consider such things like FDA 510(k) clearance – as this indicates that the product has been through a rigorous quality audit (by the USA Food & Drug Administration). There are currently no UK quality accreditations for “Point of Care” drug test devices/kits? The ITS range of single and multi-panel CE marked, FDA 510(k) and CLIA waived drug test dips, cups and drug test kits, offer highly accurate, specific, sensitive and reliable point of care testing solutions. The ITS Premier Biotech Oral-Tox (rapid oral fluid drug test) has received FDA 510(k) clearance. One of only 2 devices that has achieved this quality assurance clearance, it demonstrates why it is one of the leading Oral Fluid drug testing point of care devices available on the market today.
