Drug Screening From Fingerprints

Our fingerprint-based Drug Screening System is non-invasive, dignified and screens for multiple drug groups simultaneously.  Fingerprint sample collection takes five seconds and results are available in under 10 minutes.   The two-part system comprises:

  • Intelligent Fingerprinting Cartridge – a small, tamper-evident, fingerprint sample collection cartridge that screens for four groups of drugs: amphetamines, cocaine, opiates and cannabis
  • Intelligent Fingerprinting Reader 1000 – a portable, touchscreen-operated unit that analyses the fingerprint sample, providing a positive or negative result for each drug in the test

How It Works

Watch our step-by-step video to find out how easy it is to use the Intelligent Fingerprinting Drug Screening System.

  • Collect the fingerprint sweat sample onto the Cartridge.
  • Close the tamper evident Cartridge cover to protect the sample.
  • Switch on the Reader 1000 and follow the simple touchscreen instructions, activating the test and placing the Cartridge into the Reader when instructed.
  • The Reader analyses the chemicals contained in the fingerprint sweat sample using specialist immunoassay reagents.
  • Within 10 minutes the Reader provides a positive or negative result for each drug group in the test.

The System also offers a Rapid Scan option which allows for batch processing of samples to enable faster analysis by the Reader.

The Technology

Our revolutionary, non-invasive Drug Screening System was developed in the UK by Intelligent Fingerprinting’s team of scientists. It works by collecting and analysing the minute traces of eccrine sweat contained in a fingerprint sample to screen for the presence of target drugs or drug metabolites.

Metabolites are secondary chemicals produced by the body whenever it processes (metabolises) food, liquids or other substances we’ve ingested. Metabolites are specific to the substances we’ve consumed and are detectable in blood, urine, saliva and sweat.

Our Technology

Flexible Drug Screening

  • Our portable, non-invasive Drug Screening System gives you flexibility to test quickly and easily in many environments with minimal preparation.
  • Samples can be collected for immediate analysis by the Reader or retained securely in their tamper-proof collection Cartridges for later screening.
