Calian's Drug and Alcohol Testing Services include:


Calian Health Services icon: Breath Alcohol Test  Breath Alcohol Test

Legally defensible in court, breath alcohol testing protects both the employer and employees' rights. Calian's health professionals use evidentiary breath-testing devices to measure the level of alcohol in an individual's breath content. This is the preferred method of testing for alcohol, as saliva alcohol and urine alcohol (ethanol) testing do not stand up in court. 


Calian provides two types of Breath Alcohol testing:

  • Screening confirms if a person has alcohol in the system. If the breath alcohol content is above 0.020 you are required to complete a confirmation test. 
  • The Confirmation test is to confirm the exact alcohol content after an initial screening test. The sample is considered a negative according to the Canadian Model (COAA) if it is below 0.040.

Calian Health Services icon: Oral Fluids Tests  Oral Fluids Tests

Calian offers two types of oral fluids tests, providing you with the results you need, when you need them. 


POCT Point of collection testing (Express testing)


Instant test results. Many companies use POCT testing in conjunction with having the sample sent to the lab for confirmation testing. This lab confirmation is done regardless of the initial screening result. 

POCT Oral fluid tests are not FDA approved. 


Oral Fluid Laboratory testing

The most accurate and reliable form of testing oral fluid. The Canadian Model recognizes oral fluid testing for reasonable cause and post-incident testing. Our testing follows the recommended cut off levels from the Substance Abuse and Mental health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
