Oral Fluid Testing


Racing Analytical Services Ltd (RASL) can perform both drug screening and confirmation in oral fluid to the AS 4760:2006 standard. In most cases results are reported within 24 hours of sample submission at our Flemington laboratory.

The company operates a high security laboratory to protect the integrity of your samples. All samples are tracked with a sophisticated Laboratory Information Management System from sample log-in to final reporting and stored under secure conditions monitored by CCTV. Our trained staff ensure that we deliver high quality analytical results, on time, every week of the year.

Drug screening is performed by mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) that provides more reliable testing than on-site immunoassay devices. Confirmation is performed by LC/MS/MS.
