Drug Rehabilitation

Maintaining an open relationship between client and clinician is critical to the success of any drug rehabilitation programme and drug screening can play a positive role in enabling a more transparent approach to treatment and in measuring a client’s progress towards recovery.

In contrast to traditional drug screening approaches which require oral fluid or urine samples, fingerprint-based drug testing offers a convenient, hygienic and dignified solution that can be easily implemented in different settings, whether clinical or community-based.

In drug rehabilitation it’s especially important that drug screening serves as a positive tool to help keep a client on track, rather than a degrading or punitive measure which could discourage people from seeking help.

With the portable and non-invasive Intelligent Fingerprinting Drug Screening System, drug testing is quick, easy and, most importantly, dignified. By removing some concerns clients may have about entering treatment, fingerprint-based drug screening may contribute directly to the ongoing success of rehabilitation programmes.

The portability of the Intelligent Fingerprint Drug Screening System means that testing doesn’t need to be carried out in a clinical setting, making it easier to set up screening sessions, collect samples, administer tests and get results. In addition, being able to operate within a broad range of venues means that drug rehabilitation services can get closer to the people who most need their support.

  • How does the Intelligent Fingerprinting Drug Screening System work?

    Our fingerprint drug test screens for drug use by analysing chemicals (known as metabolites) contained in the minute traces of eccrine sweat found in a fingerprint. The presence of drug metabolites in someone’s fingerprint sweat indicates drug use by that individual. Note: Drug metabolites are produced by the body as a result of normal metabolic processes and can be analysed to identify the drug substances a person may have ingested, inhaled or injected.  Find out more in our Technology section.

  • Why should I switch to the Intelligent Fingerprinting Drug Screening System?

    In short, for speed and convenience. Our portable fingerprint drug test is quick and easy to perform any time, in a variety of locations. In comparison with traditional screening procedures involving saliva or urine, fingerprint sample collection is dignified and hygienic and it takes just 5 seconds to deposit a fingerprint onto our disposable Drug Screening Cartridge, with results within 10 minutes. The test can be administered by non-medical, non-gender-specific staff and there is no need for specialist collection facilities or clinical waste disposal for used cartridges.

  • How easy is it to use?

    Fingerprint-based drug testing is simple and hygienic to administer, while sample collection is dignified and non-invasive for those being tested.  

    Here’s how it works: The fingerprint sample is collected onto the Intelligent Fingerprinting Cartridge. The Cartridge is analysed using the portable Intelligent Fingerprinting Reader 1000 (which is battery-powered or can be plugged into the mains and is touchscreen-operated). Within ten minutes the Reader 1000 provides a negative or positive result for each drug in the test, against pre-determined thresholds.   Our video shows how easy it is to use the system:

  • Which drugs does it detect?
