9 Panel Oral Fluid drug test, Testing blood, saliva, or urine can detect most drugs for 1 to 4 days after use. Oral fluid testing, in its similarity to blood, excels in the ability to detect drug use within the first moments of consumption. Urine testing must wait until the drugs have passed through the body.
Saliva blood tests operate by checking for tiny residual amounts of drugs within the saliva. The person being tested wets the test strip with their saliva, and the test shows results using colored bands. Saliva tests check for the presence of opiates, marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, and phencyclidine drugs. Any trace of one of these drugs will cause the band corresponding to that drug to change color. A drug-free result would show no color at all.
Saliva drug test can detect the following drugs. The detection time for each drug is given against them:
Alcohol – from time of intake to 12 hours.
PCP – from a few minutes after ingestion to the next three days.
Methamphetamine and ecstasy – half an hour from ingestion up to 3 days.
Amphetamines – a few minutes to 3 days of consumption.
Barbiturates – less than an hour after ingestion up to 3 days.
Opiates – from an hour after intake to 3 days.
Cocaine – a few minutes after ingestion up to one day.
Benzodiazepines – not yet known
Cannabis – a few minutes after ingestion up to one day.
