API Global offers a nicotine test to determine the presence of cotinine – a tobacco metabolite – in the person’s system through his saliva. The test can be performed on individuals that need evaluation of tobacco use in various cases, such as employment; obtaining child custody; applying for life or health insurance; and entering a smoking cessation program.
The nicotine saliva test can detect up to 1-2 days after nicotine use and can deliver qualitative result in as fast as 10 minutes. It makes a practical tobacco testing tool for employers, parents, doctor’s offices, school administrators, and juvenile facility officers. It employs a cut-off level at 30 ng/mL and features an integrated internal procedural control to ensure proper administration of the test. For in vitro diagnostic use only.
These tests are designed to be private and discrete. Special pricing for “teen” testing.
