NicAlert Urine and Saliva Tests

NicAlert Urine and Saliva Drug Test Strip

Features

The NicAlert saliva and urine drug testing kit detects cotinine, the major metabolite of nicotine. Cotinine is the preferred marker for tobacco use because cotinine stays in the body much longer than nicotine. The presence of cotinine in saliva or urine is a reliable indicator for tobacco use within the past several days. Cotinine, with a half-life of 10-40 hours, has been shown to be more sensitive and specific than CO monitoring for measuring smoking status.

  • Determines the Level of Exposure to Tobacco Products (Saliva Sample)
  • Cigarette Smoking Kills More than 480,000 Americans each Year, 41,000 of these Deaths are from Exposure to Secondhand Smoke (CDC)
  • Suitable for Healthcare Professionals, Schools, Insurance Agencies, Research Studies and More
  • Instant Visual Interpretation of Results

NicAlert Semi-Quantitative Smoking Test

The NicAlert test will detect six ranges of cotinine concentrations from 0 ng/ml through 2000+ ng/ml.

NicAlert can help:

  • Health care professionals to test for their patient’s exposure to tobacco smoke
  • Teachers and high school coaches to test high school athletes for smoking or other tobacco product use
  • To verify smoking status for insurance applications and smoking cessation programs
  • To test subjects in tobacco research studies

Saliva or Urine Nicotine Test

NicAlert can be used to test urine or saliva. Both mediums provide reliable methods for determining tobacco use with this cotinine saliva test.

Semi-Quantitative Results

NicAlert is the only nicotine device that gives semi-quantitative results. The presence of nicotine in saliva or urine creates a green colored band on the strip. Higher concentrations of nicotine cause the band to move higher on the strip. The test strip is divided into six zones to assist the operator in interpreting test results. High concentrations of nicotine indicate recent tobacco use or heavy, chronic use.

COTININE EQUIVLALENTS FOR EACH LEVEL

Level: Cotinine Equivalents (ng/mL)
0 1-10
1 10-30
2 30-100
3 100-200
4 200-500
5 500-2000
6 2000

For Urine, test level 3 or above indicates the use of tobacco products.
For Saliva, test level 1 or above indicates the use of tobacco products

Extremely sensitive to cotinine, the principle metabolite of nicotine, the NicAlert™ test will detect 6 ranges of cotinine concentrations from 0 ng/ml through 2000+ ng/ml.
