Simple, Non-invasive Workplace Drug Testing for Transport & Logistics Firms

With the Department of Transport reporting significant increases in convictions for drug-driving, there’s increased pressure on transport and logistics operations to ensure that their drivers are both alcohol and drug-free.

Intelligent Fingerprinting’s non-invasive drug testing solution, based on fingerprint sweat analysis, brings new levels of convenience, hygiene and speed to workplace drug testing for the transport and logistics industry.

Using the compact, portable DSR-Plus reader and the tamper-evident drug screening cartridge, it takes under a minute to collect the fingerprint sweat sample, with on-screen test results for cocaine, opiates, cannabis and methamphetamines provided in ten minutes.

FAQs
  • How suitable is your drug testing system for use during the pandemic?

    Our fingerprint-based system offers a safe, simple approach to drug testing that’s quick, hygienic and enables social distancing during use.

    Face coverings can remain in place throughout testing and there’s no need for close contact or handling of biohazardous body fluids such as saliva or urine samples.  Fully portable, our system eliminates the need to call in external drug testers, helping you to lower infection risk and stay in control of costs by bringing testing in-house.

  • Do you offer a COVID-19/Coronavirus test?

    At present, our product range is focused on drugs of abuse testing. However, our R&D team is currently working on a project to develop a point-of-care antigen test for Coronavirus infection detection, with support from researchers at Imperial College London.  Project updates will be provided on our website and via the media.

  • Where can I buy your products?

    Our products are available to order directly from Intelligent Fingerprinting and various distributors worldwide.
    For further information please contact us.

  • Which drugs does it detect?

    We currently offer two versions of our fingerprint drug test cartridge and each of these screens for multiple drug groups simultaneously:

    • DSC 5-Plus screens for opiates, methamphetamine, cocaine and cannabis
    • DSC 8-Plus screens for opiates, methadone, benzodiazepines and buprenorphine

    The DSR-Plus portable reader provides a presumptive positive or negative screening result for each drug group in the test.

  • How much does it cost?

    To ensure you receive accurate pricing information and expert advice, we need to know a little about your drug testing requirements. We will then provide costings specifically tailored to your organisation’s needs. Please contact us for a no-obligation quote.

  • How quick is the test?

    Collection of the fingerprint samples onto the Drug Screening Cartridge takes less than a minute. Analysis of the Cartridge using the DSR-Plus portable reader takes only a few minutes.

  • How easy is it to use?

    Fingerprint-based drug screening is quick, hygienic and simple.  Fingerprint sample collection takes seconds and is non-invasive and dignified.

    The portable DSR-Plus – which is used to read the Drug Screening Cartridge – is operated via a touchscreen and features simple visual prompts. On-screen results are available in minutes and can be printed via the label printer accessory. Customer training is available on request.

  • How reliable is fingerprint drug screening?

    The accuracy of Intelligent Fingerprinting drug screening tests is comparable to other point-of-care drug screening tests such as those using urine and oral fluid samples. Our UKAS-accredited drug screening cartridges provide an initial screening result. This means that when the DSR-Plus reader indicates a positive result, it is known as a ‘presumptive positive’. For an unequivocal test result, further fingerprint samples are collected for a fingerprint-based laboratory test, ‘Confirmatory Analysis’, to confirm the test results.

  • What does a positive screening result mean?

    The Intelligent Fingerprinting Drug Screening Cartridge and DSR-Plus provide a presumptive result only. This means that when the DSR-Plus provides a positive screening result, it cannot be automatically assumed that the person tested has taken the drug(s) indicated. In circumstances where a positive screening result is obtained and an evidential result is required, the customer will need to verify the result using our fingerprint-based laboratory Confirmatory Analysis service.

  • Do you offer a confirmation service?

    Yes, via our accredited partner laboratories using our Fingerprint Collection Kit For Laboratory Analysis. Please contact us for more details.

  • Do you supply alcohol tests?

    Yes, we can supply Home Office Approved alcohol breath intoximeters.  Please contact us for more information.

  • How do I contact your Technical Support team?

    Please Contact Us and our technical support team will be happy to assist.

  • How does the Intelligent Fingerprinting Drug Screening System work?

    Our fingerprint drug test works by detecting target drugs and drug metabolites contained within the tiny traces of sweat in fingerprints. Drug metabolites are substances produced by the body when it processes (metabolises) drugs.

    It takes less than a minute to collect the fingerprint sweat sample onto a small, tamper-evident cartridge. The cartridge is then analysed by the portable DSR-Plus reader to provide a screening result for each drug group in the test in minutes.
