Alco-Screen™ is a rapid, highly sensitive method to detect the presence of alcohol in saliva and provide an approximation of relative blood alcohol concentration. Since it is well established that the concentration of alcohol in saliva is very close to that in the blood, saliva is the preferred specimen for alcohol testing, allowing for greater detection sensitivity than breath testing methods. Alco-Screen™ is a simple, one-step, 2 minute test that requires no instrumentation, calibration or special training to be used effectively. It is convenient enough to be used any time, and in any place.
Alco-Screen™ is FDA 510(k) cleared for home use and is a CLIA-waived testing device. Inappropriate consumption of alcohol can be a problem in many family, occupational, institutional and safety sensitive situations. Alco-Screen™ is an easy yet effective tool for identifying alcohol consumption. Alco-Screen™ can be used as a cost effective way to help minimize the risks associated with inappropriate alcohol consumption.
