Oral Fluid Drug Testing with Oral-Eze®
We all know that testing for drugs of abuse is not always a comfortable experience on the part of the donor. Given that, the last thing a tested individual would want is a repeat collection of specimen.
Oral-Eze® Drug Test
While the urine drug test is still the most common drug testing method used nowadays, saliva drug testing is rapidly becoming another acceptable technique. One of the most competitive features of saliva drug tests is that they are less invasive while still ensuring an accurate result. The good news is there’s a new oral fluid drug testing device that offers an innovative solution for identifying different kinds of illegal substances.
Benefits of Oral Fluid Drug Testing
When undergoing oral fluid drug testing, some people complain about the unfavorable taste of the collection device being used. To address that concern and make oral fluid drug testing a better experience for the donor, Quest Diagnostics came up with a testing device that does not have a salty or citric taste.
To address that concern and make oral fluid drug testing a better experience for the donor, Quest Diagnostics came up with a testing device that does not have a salty or citric taste.
The Oral-Eze saliva collector is designed with a built-in indicator window that turns blue when the sample quantity is sufficient for processing. The indicator window reduces the likelihood of the sample being rejected as "quantity not sufficient" and therefore, minimizes the time and expense associated with a second collection.
Collection procedure is fast and won’t take you more than 5 minutes, thereby, making the drug test device very much suitable for pre-employment, random, reasonable suspicion, return-to-duty, and post-accident testing.Just like other saliva drug test devices, the Oral-Eze oral fluid collector requires lab analysis – in a faster turnaround time. Testing is performed the day the specimen is received at the lab, with negative screening results reported the same day. Positive results are confirmed, reviewed, and typically reported within 72 hours of receipt.
What Drugs Does Oral-Eze® Detect?
Quest Diagnostics recently introduced the Oral-Eze® Oral Fluid Collector which is geared at simplifying the collection of samples for oral fluid drug testing. The new drug detection device can determine the presence of a wide range of drugs, such as:
- Amphetamines (AMP)
- Methamphetamines (mAMP)
- Opiates (OPI)
- Morphine (MOR)
- Heroin (6-MAM)
- Cocaine (COC)
- Marijuana (THC)
- Phencyclidine (PCP)
For more coverage, you could opt for a saliva drug test that provides more expansive coverage, namely SalivaConfirm Advanced mouth swab drug tests.

Oral fluid drug testing is applicable outside of the workplace, and can be used for forensic and law enforcement purposes. Saliva is known to contain a higher percentage of the parent drug, and the detection window can be anywhere between 12 and 24 hours, depending on the type and density of drug used.
With Oral-Eze oral fluid collector, parents can also benefit from it especially those who suspect their teenager to be using drugs. It’s very easy to administer and provides faster reliable results.
