CLIA Waived
Manufactured in USA
Saliva Test for the Presence Of Alcohol in the Blood

For DOT Testing, visit our Alco-Screen™ 02 web page.

Alco-Screen™ is a rapid, highly sensitive method to detect the presence of alcohol in saliva and provide an approximation of relative blood alcohol concentration. Since it is well established that the concentration of alcohol in saliva is very close to that in the blood, saliva is the preferred specimen for alcohol testing, allowing for greater detection sensitivity than breath testing methods. Alco-Screen™ is a simple, one-step, 2 minute test that requires no instrumentation, calibration or special training to be used effectively. It is convenient enough to be used any time, and in any place.

Alco-Screen™ is FDA 510(k) cleared for home use and is a CLIA-waived testing device. Inappropriate consumption of alcohol can be a problem in many family, occupational, institutional and safety sensitive situations. Alco-Screen™ is an easy yet effective tool for identifying alcohol consumption. Alco-Screen™ can be used as a cost effective way to help minimize the risks associated with inappropriate alcohol consumption.

Chematics, Inc. invented the saliva alcohol test in 1988 and is the leading manufacturer of quality saliva alcohol testing devices. With millions of tests sold worldwide, you can count on Chematics as a trusted partner and Alco-Screen™ as an essential component in your alcohol testing or ZERO TOLERANCE efforts. Our knowledgeable staff is on call to answer your questions.

Chematics offers third party control solutions that can be used to comply with CLIA regulations and/or to test the viability of the Alco-Screen™ test device. The Alco-Screen™ and Alco-Screen™ 02 Controls are ideal for CAP proficiency in Hospitals and Labs.

Chemcard™ Cholesterol Test

The Chemcard™ Cholesterol test is a complete, disposable, 3 minute test intended for use for early detection of elevated blood cholesterol levels associated with increased risk of coronary artery disease. The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute's National Cholesterol Education Program classifies cardiac risk level based on total cholesterol concentration as follows:

Less than 200 mg/dL (5.2 mmol/l) - DESIRABLE blood cholesterol.
200 to 239 mg/dL (5.2 to 6.2 mmol/l) - BORDERLINE HIGH blood cholesterol.
240 mg/dL (6.2 mmol/l) or above - HIGH blood cholesterol.

The Chemcard™ Cholesterol test offers unsurpassed simplicity for instant determination of total cholesterol concentration in the diagnostically critical range of 150 to 300 mg/dL (3.9 to 7.8 mmol/l). The Chemcard™ Cholesterol test uses a single drop of whole blood from a fingerstick to provide a semiquantitative estimate of total cholesterol concentration without the use of an instrument, centrifuge or sample measurement. Results are interpreted after 3 minutes by matching the color of the test pad with one of the six color blocks calibrated in 25 mg/dL increments. The Chemcard™ Cholesterol test is the simplest, most cost effective cholesterol screening device available.

Due to FDA restrictions, the Chemcard™ Cholesterol test is available for use in the USA by medical professionals only.

The Chemcard™ Cholesterol test is CE marked for self-testing in the European Union under Annex IV, Article 3 of EC Directive 98/79/EC on IN VITRODiagnostic Medical Devices.

Chemcard™ Glucose Test

The Chemcard™ Glucose Test is a simple, effective screening test which is used to identify abnormally high fasting plasma glucose (blood sugar) levels which are often a warning sign of diabetes. Chemcard™ Glucose is a 3 minute test which requires a single drop of blood obtained from a fingerstick, requires no instruments, and was shown in clinical trials to be 94 to 99.95 percent accurate in identifying normal and abnormal fasting plasma glucose levels. The Chemcard™ Glucose Test requires no instruments.

The Chemcard™ Glucose Test is 510(k) approved for both home use and in doctor's offices in the USA by the FDA.

The Chemcard™ Glucose Test is CE marked for self-testing in the European Union under Annex IV, Article 3 of EC Directive 98/79/EC on IN VITRO Diagnostic Medical Devices.
