Fingerprint Drug Screening Cartridges

Our Drug Screening Cartridges are used to capture the sweat from fingerprints for analysis using the portable Intelligent Fingerprinting Reader 1000, enabling non-invasive, hygienic sample collection in under a minute and screening for multiple drug groups simultaneously.

We currently offer two fingerprint-based drug screening tests:

  • DSC-5 Drug Screening Cartridge – detects opiates, methamphetamine, cocaine and cannabis
  • DSC-8 Drug Screening Cartridge – detects opiates, methadone, benzodiazepines and buprenorphine

A fingerprint-based laboratory confirmation service is also available.

Simple Sample Collection

Using the Intelligent Fingerprinting Drug Screening Cartridge, sample collection takes seconds and there’s no need for specialist collection staff or specially prepared sample collection areas.

Cartridges are compact, lightweight and come in individual sealed-foil pouches, ready for use whenever and wherever testing needs to take place.  Once the fingerprints have been collected onto the sample application pad, the sample is protected by a tamper-proof cover which slides across the Cartridge and locks into place.

The sample is dissolved during the test process and, as the Cartridge is non-biohazardous, it can be disposed of in normal waste after use.

How It Works

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 a few minutes using the Intelligent Fingerprinting Reader 1000.

Our step-by-step video shows fingerprint drug screening in action, from sample collection to results.

End-to-End Drug Testing

Intelligent Fingerprinting Drug Screening Cartridges are a key component in our end-to-end fingerprint-based drug testing solution which offers a convenient initial drug screening test using the Cartridge in conjunction with the Intelligent Fingerprinting Reader 1000, and the reassurance of a laboratory-based confirmation test using the Fingerprint Collection Kit for Laboratory Analysis, when an unequivocal result is required.
