There are so many options for drug testing cups, but Noble Medical’s Split-Specimen Cup offers a unique feature. As samples are collected, it sends a portion to two separate chambers. While one chamber yields results in 2 to 5 minutes, a reservoir collects another specimen that can be used for later testing. The cups can even be ordered in 3 to 13 panel configurations. As a security measure, the cup includes a key that must be inserted by a technician, which helps guarantee a more accurate result.
In addition to drug testing products, Noble Medical also offers alcohol, nicotine, infectious disease, and fertility testing products.
Centice’s Mobile Field Lab 3000 is a spectroscope and computer that comes in an easy-to-use portable case. Featuring a database of over 3,600 substances, it takes the guess work out of identifying evidence while in the field. Worried about new drugs hitting the street? The database is updated every 4 to 6 weeks.
How easy is it to use? Place a sample in the testing window, press a button, wait twenty seconds, and you’ll receive the result. Because the device utilizes spectroscopy, samples remain intact and are able to be used as evidence at a later date.

Time Magazine has reported on a fairly new trend – “smoking” alcohol. The method, which typically requires a special device to vaporize the liquor, first appeared around 2004. Why smoke alcohol rather than drink it? There are no calories ingested.
Aside from the dangers to the lungs and nasal cavity, the downside of this method is that the user is not able to measure the amount of alcohol they’ve ingested.
“It’s also much harder to know just how much alcohol you’re consuming in one sitting if you’re not stringently measuring. If a cup of alcohol is poured into a bottle and then vaporized, the drinker cannot tell if they are inhaling a few sips or the whole cup, since the liquid remains in the bottle.”
Methods range from creating vapor with dry ice, using a hookah, DIY vaporizers made with a bicycle pump and an empty bottle to commercial products (some of which are banned in the U.S.).
Also covered in the article are other trends like pouring alcohol into the eye and snorting bourbon. Both of these trends, like smoking, allow the alcohol to enter the bloodstream more quickly by bypassing the stomach.
Did you know that over 1.4 million Americans were arrested for driving under the influence in 2010? And over 4.8 million people in the country were on probation or parole in 2011?The majority of organizations will manage their offenders with outdated or overly-complicated systems. Typically, it’s nothing more than a spreadsheet and an answering machine. For current systems to work, an employee must record a new daily voice message based on a randomly created cycle. This means many wasted hours with no guarantee of randomization.
So how does call2test differ? Once you’ve entered an offender into the web-based system, call2test will handle the rest. Simply provide the offender with a telephone number and their randomly generated call-in PIN. They’ll hear an automated voice system letting them know they’re due to report. It’s that easy.Concerned about privacy? call2test only requires a first name or anonymous ID number of your choosing.Have many groups to manage? No problem. You can group offenders by location, testing center, type offense, or any other criteria that you find necessary. You can excuse a group for holidays and closures, or even excuse an individual offender as needed.call2test makes managing offenders easy for overworked and underfunded municipalities and eliminates the guesswork. And because it’s web-based, there’s no need to worry about upgrades.Want to know more? Visit our FAQ and Features Tour sections or contact us today for a 60 day free trial.
