Saliva Drug Testing – Synthetic Urine Test Alternative

Saliva testing is gaining popularity among law enforcement and other platforms. Parole officers and probation officers often test their parolees with saliva swab tests. The test is a small two-inch stick about the size of a cotton swab. It is made to be held between the cheek and gums for about one minute. Then the stick is placed inside a tube to be sent to a laboratory. The person administering the test makes the person scrape their cheek a few times with the stick to eliminate cheating the test. These tests are quite reliable when administered correctly.
