OraSure Q.E.D. A-150 Saliva Alcohol Tests
The OraSure Q.E.D. Saliva Alcohol test is a non-invasive test. The test provides results in 2-5 minutes, reads like a thermometer, includes a built-in quality control spot and offers a high correlation to blood alcohol. For in vitro diagnostic use. D.O.T. - Approved, FDA-Cleared and CLIA Waived. (FDA 510K#: K894001) All product has minimum 8-9 months shelf life.
The Q.E.D.® Saliva Alcohol test is a technological breakthrough that can be used as an accurate, quantitative measurement device for obtaining blood alcohol levels using a saliva sample. The test can reliably be used in place of blood, urine, or breath testing methods which require expensive equipment and operator training. Through a preset chemical reactive process that requires no user intervention, a color bar rises to the level of alcohol present in the system in much the same way as a mercury thermometer. In extensive clinical trials, saliva alcohol levels measured by the Q.E.D.® Saliva Alcohol test demonstrated a high correlation rate of 98% (r=0.98) to blood analyzed by sophisticated laboratory gas chromatography methods.
