Saliva Drug Testing

Oral fluid (or saliva) testing is collected by the donor while under supervised observations, which makes tampering with the test sample virtually impossible.  Oral fluid is a good option for remote work location and organizations that have physical contact with their employees (i.e. offices, manufacturing plants, etc.).
