Alcohol Screening

Procedure
• Nothing by mouth for fifteen (15) minutes prior to performing
  test
• Open test pouch, remove test strip and saturate end with
  saliva
• Interpret results at four (4) minutes




                                                                  2
Results: Interpretation and Documentation
 Interpret the test results between 4 and 5 minutes



 Test interpretation:
  - The Alco-Screen .02 produces a distinct colored line across the
    reactive pad in the presence of saliva greater than 0.02% BAC.
  - A reagent pad that shows no distinct line should be interpreted
    as less than 0.02% BAC.




       It is recommended that alcohol screen results should
                      not be given to donor.
