Saliva drug test detection times UK

Posted by UK Drug Testing on

Saliva drug test detection times tend to be shorter when compared to the equivalent detection times of a urine drug test. Saliva drug tests give a far better indicator of recent drug use. The dose of the drug taken has a significant effect on the period over which it can be detected.

Cannabis drug detection times in saliva can be very short. No metabolite is detectable in saliva, so drug tests rely on the direct detection of the parent compound in the oral cavity. If washed, rinsed or if food is consumed, detection can and will be affected with a saliva test.

Different brand saliva drug tests may have different cut off levels as there is no international standard. The below cut off levels are for our ALLTEST and Nobex test lines.
