The most recent Australian Standard for drug testing in oral fluid (AS/NZS 4760:2019) was released in March 2019.

For onsite devices, the major changes to the Australian drug testing standard introduced in 2019 are:

  1. The cut-off level for THC has been reduced from 25ng/mL to 15ng/mL.
  2. Oxycodone (40ng/mL) has been added as a separate drug group to be tested for.

ToxWipe 7 – independently verified to 2019 Standard

ToxWipe 7 oral fluid drug testing device

Safework Labs can provide you with ToxWipe 7 for all your oral fluid onsite drug testing needs. The device has been independently verified to AS/NZS 4760:2019.

The ToxWipe 7 has been investigated for all drugs as per the Australian Standard, including benzodiazepines, and meets all the new standard’s performance criteria.

The ToxWipe 7 was submitted to the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine (VIFM) for testing against specificity, sensitivity and compliance to manufacturer performance claims.

The six drugs listed in AS/NZS 4760:2019 plus benzodiazepines were investigated and the ToxWipe 7 was confirmed by VIFM to meet the performance claims.

This means the device is considered “fit for purpose” for onsite oral fluid testing in accordance with AS/NZS 4760:2019.
