Webinar – Detecting Drugged Driving in Wisconsin: Comparing Whole Blood and Roadside Oral Fluid Specimens

Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene (WSLH) Forensic Toxicologist Ted Savage discusses the Dane County Oral Fluid Study.

Objectives of the study were to evaluate the utility of an oral fluid detection system as a tool for law enforcement, the prevalence of people driving under the influence of both alcohol and drugs, the differences between detecting drugs in oral fluid and in whole blood, and the effectiveness of the WSLH drug testing cancellation policy when blood alcohol concentrations (BAC) exceed 0.10 g/100 mL.
