Employers and testing providers have long awaited federal approval of oral fluid testing due to its ease of use, inherent observed collection properties, and decreased invasiveness. Oral fluid testing guidelines were recently published by SAMHSA, but now what? Just what does that mean for mandated and non-mandated drug testing?
Abbott invites you to join Dr. Christine Moore, PhD, DSc, as she presents a comprehensive overview on the HHS oral fluid testing guidelines that took effect on January 1, 2020. Dr. Moore will explain how the guidelines define “how” and “when” oral fluid testing can be used, oral fluid testing versus traditional urine testing, and the different types of oral fluid testing. She will also describe the differences between split specimen collections and sequential specimen collections. Dr. Moore’s presentation will leave attendees with a better understanding of the guidelines so they can effectively prepare for the use of oral fluid testing in 2020.
