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.
Alco-Screen® 02 is the most simple, cost effective method of monitoring for alcohol consumption in your Zero Tolerance testing program. Alco-Screen® 02 is so effective that it has been tested and approved by the US Department of Transportation (DOT) for required testing of all transportation and safety sensitive employees for blood alcohol concentrations above the federally mandated zero tolerance level of 0.02%. Alco-Screen® 02 is a simple one-step saliva screening test that works in a clean, non-invasive manner and provides results within 4 minutes. Simply wet the test pad with saliva; development of a line on the test pad within 4 minutes indicates a blood alcohol concentration exceeding 0.02% as shown below
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 very simple, one-step, 2 minute test requiring no instrumentation, calibration or special training to be used effectively, and is convenient enough to be used any time, any place
