Quantisal Oral Fluid Collection Device

Quantisal Oral Fluid Collection Device

<< >>
Usage conditions apply
The Quantisal™ oral fluid collection devices were used in the 2007 and 2013 Roadside Surveys (PI: John Lacey) and in the Drug Crash Risk Study (PI: John Lacey) that took place in Virginia Beach, VA in 2010. Participants place the cotton swab beneath their tongue. The swab collects a sufficient oral fluid sample for laboratory testing. There is a volume adequacy indicator on the swab that turns blue when a sufficient amount of oral fluid has been collected. Users then place the oral fluid sample into a plastic transport container with stabilizing buffer solution in it. This is sent to a laboratory for testing results. Samples can be tested for a range of drugs, as well as alcohol.
