Alcohol Saliva Test is a rapid method intended for the semi-quantitative detection of alcohol in human saliva for blood alcohol concentration (BAC) greater than 0.02%. To confirm the concentration of positive specimens, an alternate, non-enzymatic technology such as headspace gas chromatography should be used.
How to use
Allow the device and specimen to equilibrate to room temperature (50.0℉ ~86.0℉/10 ºC ~30 ºC) prior to testing.
Remove a testing device from the foil pouch by tearing at the notch and place it on a level surface.
Saturate the reactive pad by dipping it into the saliva specimen collected in a sputum cup, or by applying saliva directly to the reaction pad. After 10 seconds, shake off the excess saliva.
Immediately start timer and at 2 minutes, estimate the approximate blood alcohol concentration by comparing the reactive pad with the provided colored chart below.
NOTE: Results after more than 2 minutes may be not accurate.
Read the result
A distinct color is developed all over the pad. The positive result indicates that the BAC is 0.02% or higher. The alcohol concentration changes are related to the colored chart above.
Almost no color changes compared to that of the background. A result where the outer edges of the reagent pad produces a slight color but the majority of the pad remains the background color should be repeated to ensure complete saturation of the reagent pad with saliva. If the second result is the same, the results should be interpreted as being negative. The negative result indicates that the BAC is less than 0.02%.
If the reaction pad has a green color before applying saliva sample, do not use this test.
