Difference between the Reliability of a Saliva and Urine drug test



When taking a drug test, accuracy and reliability is what everyone is seeking for. However, you may wonder which of these two drug tests are more reliable, a saliva or a urine drug test? When taking either test it’s important to consider the following factors for accuracy and reliability:

  • Drug tests should have an FDA approved manufacturer.
  • Drug tests should be performed correctly.
  • The appropriate drug test should be administered according to the drugs being screened for.

Having an FDA approved manufacturer ensures you that these tests have gone through extensive product trials that ensure 99% accuracy. Following the instructions correctly when performing these drug tests is important to avoid any mistakes that can alter the final result.

With saliva drug tests, altering the results is very uncommon since the person administering it is present, making this type of testing preferred by many. However, with urine drug tests, instructions are simply given to the person before asked for a sample. Either test has proven to be reliable when they are performed correctly but it’s also important to remember to administer the correct drug test depending on the drugs you are trying to detect in someone’s system.
