Our patented Fingerprint Drug Screening Cartridges provide a quick and non-invasive method of drug screening that’s more convenient than traditional methods involving urine or saliva samples. Fingerprint sweat samples are collected onto the Cartridge which is then inserted into the portable Intelligent Fingerprinting DSR-Plus, with results available in 10 minutes.
Our Drug Screening Cartridges enable a non-invasive, non-biohazardous approach to drug testing that's more hygienic and simpler to administer than other tests.
Fingerprint sample collection takes seconds, while Cartridges are supplied in sealed foil pouches and feature a tamper-evident locking cover to protect the sample from interference.
Fingerprint-based drug testing using the Drug Screening Cartridge removes the requirement for specialist handling and preparation. There’s no need for gender-specific sample collectors or clinical waste disposal, reducing overall costs and speeding up the process.
Unlike conventional plastic urine cup tests that are bulky and typically weigh between 50-100g each, Intelligent Fingerprinting Drug Screening Cartridges weigh just 11g and are easier to store and transport.
The ground-breaking technology used within our Fingerprint Drug Screening Cartridges has been fully validated and we have ISO 13485 Medical Devices quality accreditation.
With the Intelligent Fingerprinting Drug Screening Cartridge, sample collection takes less than a minute and there’s no need for specialist collection staff or specially prepared sample collection areas, so drug screening can be carried out at a time and place that suits you – ideal for random and for-cause tests.
Cartridges are compact, lightweight and come in individual sealed-foil pouches, ready for use whenever and wherever they are needed. Once the fingerprints have been collected onto the sample application pad, the sample is protected by a tamper-evident cover which slides across the Cartridge and locks into place.
The fingerprint sample is dissolved during the test process and, as the Cartridge is non-biohazardous, it can be disposed of in normal waste after use.

The Cartridges use lateral flow assay technology – similar to a pregnancy test – to detect specific drugs or their metabolites in the sweat collected from fingerprints.
Once the sample has been collected, the Cartridge is analysed in just 10 minutes using the Intelligent Fingerprinting DSR-Plus portable reader.
Intelligent Fingerprinting Drug Screening Cartridges are a key part of our end-to-end drug testing solution which enables a convenient initial drug screening test using the Cartridge in conjunction with the DSR-Plus reader, and the reassurance of a laboratory-based confirmation test service using the Fingerprint Collection Kit for Laboratory Analysis, when an unequivocal result is required.
