Industry professionals in critical sectors such as construction, manufacturing, and logistics are reporting substantial advantages after implementing a Fingerprinting Drug Screening System.

Intelligent Bio Solutions Inc. is a medical technology company delivering intelligent, rapid, non-invasive testing solutions. The company believes that its Intelligent Fingerprinting Drug Screening System will replace portable testing through fingerprint sweat analysis, which has the potential for broader applications in additional fields. Designed as a hygienic and cost-effective system, the test screens for recent use of drugs commonly found in the workplace, including opiates, cocaine, methamphetamine, and cannabis. With sample collection in seconds and results in under ten minutes, this technology would be a valuable tool for employers in safety-critical industries.

Customers across an array of industry sectors are reporting substantial advantages post-implementation of the system, including:

  • enhanced control over drug screening processes by transitioning to in-house
  • improvements in workplace productivity
  • streamlined project compliance and
  • significant cost savings

With this system, employers can identify current impairment rather than past use with a detection window of only 16 hours. Conduct screening at any time and location using a compact and portable system. Prevent foul play and maintain sample integrity through administrator-supervised testing and self-locking sample seals. Preserve employee dignity with quick, non-invasive, and hygienic analysis of fingertip sweat. 

Intelligent Bio Solutions has seen a shift in preference toward fingerprint sweat-based drug screening, with many organizations seeking alternatives to traditional methods such as urine and oral fluid testing.

“We’re seeing an increasing need for drug and alcohol testing across major construction and manufacturing projects. Modern HSEQ and HR teams are recognizing that conventional drug testing approaches simply are not meeting the growing demands for improved operational efficiencies,” explains Harry Simeonidis, president and chief executive officer at Intelligent Bio Solutions. “This realization is driving rapid customer adoption of our Intelligent Fingerprinting Drug Screening System, which not only offers a non-invasive, quick and easy solution but also improves efficiencies and unlocks significant productivity savings.”

Recent examples include:

  • Auctus Management Group, based in the U.K., has implemented a streamlined induction process utilizing the Intelligent Fingerprinting Drug Screening System at its core. This approach allows for a comprehensive screening process, including collecting fingerprint sweat samples, alcohol breath analysis and biometric data collection, all within an 11-minute timeframe per candidate. According to Auctus: “We simply could not deliver this project at scale using urine or saliva drug tests.”
  • Construction technology specialist firm DGP Plc has around 450 employees and contractors working on customer project sites at any time. DGP has effectively minimized on-site disruption caused by half-day absences required for urine-based testing by switching to quick, on-site fingerprint sweat-based drug screening in minutes.
  • Independent chemical manufacturer Robinson Brothers found that replacing its external urine-based drug testing service with the Intelligent Fingerprinting Drug Screening System meant it could conduct the same volume of workplace drug screening at around half the cost.
