First Sign Saliva Drug Test
The Most Reliable and Accurate Drug Testing Device
The First Sign Saliva Test is renowned for its ease of application, accuracy and quick results (less than five minutes). First Sign Saliva Test is verified to Australian Standard AS 4308:2008. The First Sign Saliva Tester is one of the few devices on the market that allows you to put the device back into your mouth if you not have collected enough saliva.
The collection procedure of a saliva test can be seen as being less invasive than a ProScreen Cup urine drug test. With a First Sign Saliva test, you only need to provide a minimal amount of privacy whereas you need to provide toilet facilities to conduct a urine drug test.
The First Sign Saliva Test has been specifically designed to detect the 6 illicit drugs under the Australian Standard including THC, Cocaine, Methamphetamines and amphetamines. With the rising use of illicit drugs in the workplace and the repercussions it has on the businesses, more and more employers are creating their “no tolerance to drug policies within the workforce” and will often pre-screen new employees and Randomly test employees. By implementing such practices it protects the business from liability.
The drugs that can be detected by the First Sign Saliva Test include marijuana (THC), cocaine (COC), amphetamines (AMP), methamphetamines (METH), opiates (OPI), Benzodiazepine (BZO) as well as creatinine, nitrites, bleach, pH and specific gravity. By detecting an illicit drug it enables the employer to be proactive and prevent any possible harm to their employees, equipment and the public.

However, psychomotor impairment may continue after the perceived high has stopped. A few side effects include elation, anxiety, tachycardia, short-term memory recall issues, sedation, relaxation, pain relief and more.
