The Draeger DrugTest 5000 has been approved for Police use by the Home Office (‘BBC News, 4 January 2013‘).HomeOffice Logo Drugtest 5000

Initial approval is for THC (Cannabis), with Amphetamines, Cocaine, Benzodiazepines, Opiates, Methadone and Methamphetamine all currently undergoing the approval process and expected shortly.

The device is the first-ever Home Office Approved Saliva-based drug tester and has been approved for use by UK Police, removing the requirement of blood testing as a screening method.

We incorporated the DrugTest 5000 in our ‘Lab in a Bag‘ Drug & Alcohol Testing System in 2011 – offering the first ever combined Home Office Approved Drug & Alcohol System for use by companies & law enforcement.
