Dräger DrugTest 5000

No pipetting, no drips, no timing: With the Dräger DrugTest 5000, a drug test is carried out simply and quickly. The collected saliva sample can be analyzed immediately – for accurate results on the spot.

The drug tester, Dräger DrugTest 5000, consists of the sampling system Dräger DrugTest 5000 Test Kit and of the analyzer Dräger DrugTest 5000 Analyzer. Whether for point-of-care or on-site testing, this system provides you with everything you need for the first screening. You know, on the spot, if a person is influenced by drugs.

The Dräger DrugTest 5000 test kit provides you with a ready-to-use sampling system. You want to check a suspected person? Just remove the cover and hand the test cassette over to the person being tested and they then collect the sample themselves.

Even when it becomes hectic: you control the analyzer with only three keys. The operation is menu-driven. Just follow the plain text instructions.

The tested person moves the top part of the collector briefly back and forth between their cheek and gums until the integrated indicator signals the end of the sampling by a blue discoloration. This usually takes less than one minute but never more than four minutes. The tested person then returns the encapsulated cassette to you – thus ensuring no contact with the saliva sample.

Detection of possible drug use begins immediately after collecting the saliva sample. Just slide the test cassette and the cartridge into the Analyzer and the analysis will run automatically, giving you the freedom to further care for the tested person. The result will display after a few minutes.

The measured result is displayed in plain text on the instrument screen. Misinterpretations are therefore nearly impossible. More details can be added to the results via the external keyboard, stored or directly printed via the Dräger Mobile Printer (optional).

Do you want to know on the spot whether there are detectable traces of drugs on the steering wheel or if the contents of a suspicious bag contain drugs? Easily answer such questions by taking a sample with the Dräger Surface Screening Kit (SSK 5000) drug sampler and transferring the specimen to the Dräger DrugTest 5000 Test Kit. You can then analyse the sample with the Dräger DrugTest 5000 Analyzer.
