Fingerprint Drug Test May hit Orange County

A fingerprint drug test can distinguish the antibodies associated with different types of drugs from its programmed design

Orange County , United States - January 25, 2020 /MarketersMedia/ —

Recently, technology in drug tests has been advancing with fingerprint drug tests becoming imminent.

The test uses a device that detects specific drugs, including their metabolites from the sweat accumulated in the fingerprint.

This recent technology is gradually becoming the most accurate and useful technology to detect various substances present in the body sweat.

The test only requires small amounts of sweat from the fingertip to measure the content of drug content in the body. The procedure involves pressing a finger against a tamper-proof cartridge and then wait for results to show on display.

It takes at least five seconds to collect the sample. The screen can later analyze and display the type of drugs used within ten minutes after the test. Researchers have cross-analyzed results from these tests with saliva and found them to have similar accurate results.

This technology is becoming a beneficial and efficient method of detecting drugs quickly and conveniently. Its potential use ranges to public health personnel, such as family services workers and law administration.

What is the Importance of Fingerprint Drug Test?
Historically, drug test methods require blood or urine samples to establish the concentration and presence of drugs. Many other cultural factors lead to the need for updated means of verifying whether a person has used drugs.

With marijuana legalization in many states, law enforcement officials can collect quick information at traffic stops and other settings efficiently using the test.

For individuals and families in recovery, forming non-invasive drug testing alternatives can develop trust and maintain dignity.

Although contradictory opinions exist on whether or not employees should perform drug tests, many places of work require compulsory drug testing.

Usually, employers have been using saliva tests since it has been the most reliable and efficient method. Fingerprint drug testing could end up replacing and even surpassing saliva testing in these environments.

Some of the best advantages of this new drug testing method are:

Also, you can perform the fingerprint testing immediately without visiting washrooms or outsourcing a lab for results. In contrast, blood and urine samples produce biohazard waste problems, since their disposal has to follow specific guidelines.

Additionally, you can quickly dispose of the portable fingerprint cartridge with regular waste after use. The fingerprint device costs a few thousand dollars, with each cartridge reasonably priced. Besides, the only currently available fingerprint drug screen system in the market is made for forensic use only.

How the Device Works

After food consumption, the body digests food substances and then secretes metabolites into the sweat, blood, urine, and saliva. Since these secretions are good enough to detect the drugs or chemicals ingested, identifying them using the fingerprint analysis method is quite easy. The sweat that is present on the fingertip has enough substance to precisely detect the type of drugs recently ingested.

A fingerprint drug test can distinguish the antibodies associated with different types of drugs from its programmed design. If the device scans a fingerprint and identifies these antibodies, it alerts the reader with the relevant results. The currently available devices use touchscreen technology to display screen results within a few minutes after the test.

Judge: No slander in Alec Baldwin's comments on parking spat

Sep 27, 2020

NEW YORK — Alec Baldwin didn't slander a man in interviews about a parking dispute that turned physical, a judge has ruled as dueling lawsuits between the actor and the other driver continue. Baldwin's remarks — including claims that Wojciech Cieszkowski's driving was “really fast,” “really aggressive” and made the actor think his wife and son were about to be run over — were "hyperbole" and "rhetorical illustrations," Manhattan judge David B. Cohen wrote Thursday. “They are words of frustration with someone's driving,” not accusations that amount to slander, Cohen wrote. He tossed out Cieszkowski's slander claim, but his assault...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Sep 27, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...
