Companies are increasingly turning to saliva drug tests as a simple and convenient form of drug testing. It is less intrusive and can easily be collected without the need for using a private area, such as with a urine test. This all but eliminates the risk of sample adulteration or substitution.
While saliva drug testing is easy and appropriate in most situations, there are limitations that one should be aware of.
Lack of sensitivity, low accuracy and slow flow are current challenges in saliva drug testing. To resolve these issues, ALFA Scientific Designs is proud to offer Instant-view-PLUS™ Saliva Drug Tests with Driven Flow™ Technology. The mechanical design of Driven Flow™ Technology utilizes powerful driving forces to push the flow evenly past the reaction area at highly accelerated speeds. It includes the following benefits:
- Defeats obstruction within the test components
- Ensures the reaction to be more complete over a shorter period of time
- Significantly increases the testing sensitivity, despite lower analyte concentrations in saliva
- Minimizes false results from nonspecific binding to increase the accuracy of test results
- Obtain rapid results
When speed and reliability matter, only ALFA Driven Flow Saliva Testing Technology can get the results you need in the shortest amount of time.

Are there food/liquid restrictions before using this test?
People should be encouraged to avoid eating right before using this test, as certain foods can alter the thickness of the saliva, and make it more difficult to produce enough saliva.
How fast are results available?
Driven Flow™ drug testing results can be available in as quick as 1-2 minutes. In a clinical setting, for example, this means improved patient outcomes because doctors are able to get reliable and accurate information much quicker than with other drug testing products. There’s no need to send a sample down to the lab and wait, especially when you can get results without ever leaving the patient. Physicians can react and implement a plan of care much faster. For roadside testing, Driven Flow™ saliva tests facilitate a much easier process for law enforcement.
How accurate is the Driven Flow saliva testing?
In testing against standard lateral flow cassettes, dip strips and cup testing technologies, the Driven Flow technology was far better at detecting positive samples. Accuracy testing was consistently above 97%.
What drugs does the ALFA Instant-view-PLUS™ Saliva Drug Test detect?
ALFA’s Driven Flow™ technology is able to detect many common drug use, including:
- Phencyclidine (PCP)
- Marijuana (THC)
- MDMA (Ecstasy)
