Alcohol Saliva Test Strips
The Instant Alcohol Saliva Test is fast and easy to use, producing reliable results in just minutes. This test detects the presence of alcohol in saliva and can provide an approximation of blood alcohol concentration from 0.02% and higher.
When you are in the field and cannot carry around bulky equipment, these lightweight and simple saliva alcohol test kits can help you determine if a person has recently consumed alcohol. They test a person’s saliva for traces of alcohol and work in as little as two minutes.
Simply take a swab of saliva from the subject’s mouth and test it right there on the spot with the saliva testing strip. No specialized collection facilities and no same gender collections are required. With these instant saliva testing strips, a mouth swab is all that’s required.

Specimen Collection and Preperation
- Nothing should be placed into the mouth of the subject for at least 10 minutes prior to saliva collection. This includes food, drink, tobacco products or other materials.
- Saliva specimen can be collected in a sputum cup or a clean container, or directly applied to the reaction pad of the test strip.
- Store 2ºC to 30ºC in the sealed pouch up to the expiration date.

- Remove a strip from the foil pouch by tearing at the notch and place it on a level surface.

- Immediately start timer and at 2 minutes, compare the reactive pad with the provided colored chart below.
For forensic use only. One Step Alcohol Saliva Test Strip is intended for use as a rapid method to detect the presence of alcohol in saliva for blood alcohol concentration (BAC) greater than 0.02%. It has been published that the concentration of alcohol in saliva is almost equal to that in blood. The rapid saliva test is intended for the semi-quantitative detection of ethyl alcohol in human saliva. For in vitro use only. Not intended for home use.
