iScreen Oral Fluid Nicotine Test
The iScreen oral fluid nicotine test instantly screens for cotinine and is ideal for smoking cessation programs and employee screening and health wellness programs.
One end of the device has a collection swab used to collect the oral fluid sample. The collector actively swabs the mouth and tongue until saturated with saliva, then inserts the collector into the cap and locks it into place. The collector then lays the device on a horizontal surface to allow the test results to develop.
Easy-to-Read Pass/Fail Results
Results are read at ten minutes. The presence of a line at the test indicator is a negative result. The absence of a line indicates recent tobacco use. The integrated internal control assures the operator that the test worked correctly. In addition, the iScreen nicotine test makes laboratory confirmation of non-negative results simple. The operator places a tamper evident seal over the cap of the device, and sends the entire device to the laboratory.
Detects Cotinine at Low Cutoff Levels
The Alere iScreen oral fluid nicotine test accurately screens for cotinine, the primary metabolite of nicotine. A cut-off level of 30 ng/mL level allows the device to detect cotinine up to 1-2 days and longer after nicotine use.
