Substances can be detected by means of urine, blood, saliva, hair and sweat testing. However, the most wide spread method is urine test. But other methods are getting more popularity, including saliva testing.
A sample of person?s saliva is needed to make an examination for presence (if any) of drugs or their metabolites in person?s system. The sample has to be examined by the professional in a laboratory.
