Storing And Packaging

- OralTox test is to be stored at 36-86°F (2-30°C) in its sealed foil package. If storage temperatures exceed 86° F (30°C), the test performance may degrade.
Components And Test Preparation
- The donor must avoid placing anything in their mouth for at least 10 minutes prior to the collection. This includes, food, drink, gum and tobacco products.
- To aid in collecting enough oral fluid, the donor should be instructed to pool oral fluid prior to collection.
- Open OralTox device pouch in front of the donor
- Request the donor remove the collection swab from the OralTox device.
Have the donor sweep inside of mouth (cheek, gums, and tongue) and then hold the swab in mouth until the color fills the indicator window of the collection swab.
Most donors will saturate the collection sponge within 2-4 minutes. Please note that some individuals will experience dry mouth and collection may exceed 4 minutes.
It is very important that the donor does NOT SUCK OR CHEW on the collection sponge or remove the collection sponge from his/her mouth during the collection time, until the indicator changes color.
The collection is completed when color appears on the indication strip inside the collection swab which indicates there is sufficient amount of oral fluid for testing. If after 7 minutes the saturation indicator has not changed color, discard the device and repeat the test.
Note: Administrator supervises the donor throughout the collection process without the need to touch the collection device.
With the test device positioned upright on a FLAT SURFACE, the donor removes the swab from their mouth and inserts the collection swab sponge first into the device, pushing and twisting down until the threaded handle locks into place.
The control line is the uppermost line appearing in each test area. Before reading the test result lines, verify that all control lines have formed. Results from any test without a top control line is invalid and the test must be discarded.
Interpreting Test Results
NEGATIVE results can be read as soon as the test and control lines appear on any test strip (often within 2 minutes).
A negative result is indicated by two colored bands appearing on the membrane. One band appears in the control region (C), and another band appears in the test region (T). The intensity of the test lines may vary. Any line, without regard to intensity, color or size, is a line and indicates a negative result.
PRESUMPTIVE POSITIVE results are to be read at 10 minutes. Interpret test as negative, presumptive positive, or invalid. Do not read test results after 20 minutes. Follow your organizations established protocol for presumptive positive results. After the results have been interpreted, the OralTox device may be thrown in a regular trash receptacle.
