Oral fluid testing is recognized as a reliable and innovative test format that provides fast and convenient specimen collections. The non-invasive method does not require special collection facilities necessitated by the privacy requirements of a urine collection. Additionally, because each collection can be directly observed, donor tampering with the specimen is virtually eliminated.
Our laboratories analyze oral fluid specimens for substances of abuse via state-of-the-art technology and automated systems. Our skilled staff helps ensure you receive accurate analysis on your oral fluid specimens.
Our oral fluid laboratory test panels are ideal for a variety of industries, particularly in addiction treatment, criminal justice and workplace situations where recent use detection and ease-of-use are vital.
Screening and confirmation testing are performed using different methodologies that necessitate different cutoff levels. The cutoff levels of an immunoassay screen are typically higher than those of a more sensitive GC-MS or LC-MS/MS confirm test, because they screen for a larger group of parent compounds, metabolites and other structurally similar compounds.
If an immunoassay test detects a drug (above the screening cutoff level) the presumptive positive specimen may be sent to GC-MS or LC-MS/MS confirmation testing. Many times, these individual compounds are present in concentrations much lower than the total immunoassay response, thus resulting for the cutoff levels being lower for the GC-MS or LC-MS/MS test.

In addition to our routine drug testing panel, Abbott offers specialized oral fluid test options including: Synthetic Cannabinoids and Fentanyl testing.
We can confidently say we’re at the forefront of researching and identifying synthetic cannabinoids. We were one of the first labs in the world to develop a urine-based metabolite test for “synthetic marijuana.”
Often up to 4 to 100 times stronger than marijuana, users turn to these herbal smoking products marketed under brand names such as K2, K3 Legal, Syn, Spice, and many others to avoid detection by standard drug tests.
Fentanyl and its analogs are extremely fast-acting synthetic narcotic analgesics, of high potency. These drugs have similar dependency properties to that of morphine. Fentanyl and its derivatives have become a public health crisis over the last several years due to increased presence of illicit fentanyl and the addition of illicit fentanyl and fentanyl derivatives to heroin.
Fentanyl use, originally for chronic pain, has increased in illicit street-use and among healthcare workers due to the drug's euphoric effects and easy availability.
