What type of tests methods can I use?


Oral Fluid (Saliva), Urine or Hair

Some companies have concentrated on just one of these technologies, so that’s all they will offer. Many may try and sell their system where its use is not appropriate or indeed required. Other suppliers may just push the “most profitable” items or the systems that they must sell a minimum number of each month as part of a contract. Laboratories may often not wish to offer point of care/instant screening devices as it can reduce their income. ITS is an independent company and therefore offer impartial advice. We are experts in all areas of testing, therefore we can inform you truthfully and authoritatively which product is right for your application. To decide what method is best suited to your testing programme, you must first consider the “window of detection”. This is basically from when a drug is detectable and the length of time that drugs remain detectable (over the cut-off limit). This varies dependant on the sample media type that you are testing. The tables below are intended to give a rough guide of this “window”.
