Employer Oral Fluid Testing using Oral-Eze®

Quest Diagnostics champions our innovative oral fluid collection system that simplifies the collection of oral samples for routine drug testing.

The Oral-Eze® Oral Fluid Collector provides all the advantages of previous collection systems, with the added benefit of our indicator window technology. The indicator window takes the guesswork out of collecting samples and turns blue when the sample quantity is sufficient for processing, thereby reducing repeat collections.

 

 

The advantages of Oral-Eze

  • Indicator window assures sample adequacy. The patented collection device with built-in indicator window reduces the likelihood of the sample being rejected as "quantity not sufficient" and thereby reducing the time and expense associated with a second collection.
  • No unpleasant taste. The Oral-Eze Oral Fluid Collector does not have a salty or citric taste.
  • Easy collection and fast turnaround. Sample collection with the Oral-Eze collector typically takes about five minutes. Testing is performed the day it arrives at our lab, with negative screening results reported the same day. Positive results are confirmed, reviewed, and typically reported within 72 hours of receipt.
  • Tests for a wide range of drugs. which include amphetamines, methamphetamines (including MDMA and its metabolite), opiates (Codeine, Morphine, Hydrocodone, Hydromorphone, 6-monoacetylmorphine), cocaine (metabolite), marijuana (THC) and phencyclidine (PCP).

Why use oral fluid testing?

Oral fluid testing offers confidential lab-based drug test results from an easy-to-use oral fluid collection method.

By using oral fluid instead of urine, donors can collect and cap their own samples on-site and in the presence of a monitor, reducing the likelihood of a donor challenge later on. The Oral-Eze collector is a minimally-invasive, easy-to-use method that can be used for pre-employment, random, reasonable suspicion, return-to-duty and post-accident testing.

Quest Diagnostics also performs specimen validity testing on every oral fluid specimen, giving you the added assurance that the specimen is appropriate for testing.

3. Detach.
The collection pad is inserted into the transport tube and detached from the collector.

4. Cap.
The cap is pressed until completely sealed and a tamper-evident seal is placed across the top and down the sides of collection tube. Ship the specimen to the testing laboratory.
