Detection Period - 1- 2 days
Detection Level - 30 ng/mL
Cotinine Oral Fluid Screening Device will determine smoking status or nicotine use. Cotinine is the primary metabolite of nicotine and is detectable in saliva for 1-2 days after use.
The saliva screen is widely used at wellness fairs since it is easier and cleaner to administer than a urine test. For workplaces that are paying an insurance premium for smokers, implementing a random nicotine test can encourage employee honesty.
The detection level of 30 ng/mL is high enough to eliminate a false positive from second hand smoke.
