How to Read Results
Who Orders a Nicotine Test and Why?
There are several different reasons why a person may be required to undergo nicotine testing. Some of the most common include:
- Admittance into smoking cessation programs
- Required screening for life or health insurance coverage
- Procedural testing prior to certain surgeries or healthcare services
- If your physician is concerned you may be experiencing symptoms of a nicotine overdose or nicotine poisoning
- Pre-employment testing
- During child custody deliberations to determine if a parent is likely to expose their child(ren) to second-hand smoke
Nicotine drug tests are capable of not just whether an individual has smoked, chewed, or ingested nicotine, but also how much nicotine is present in the system. This is especially important for those who are attempting to quit smoking, as physicians can monitor how much a patient has cut back and recommend the appropriate cessation products for their phase of the elimination process.
How do Tobacco Tests Work?
Nicotine tests, also known as cotinine tests, can be completed using blood, urine, hair, or saliva samples. These tests work by detecting the chemical compound (nicotine) in the body. When nicotine enters the body, it is processed by the liver, which metabolizes the nicotine into cotinine metabolites. The lungs also metabolized by the lungs, which turn the chemical compound into cotinine and nicotine oxide.
How Long Does Nicotine Stay in Your System?
Below is a guide to how long nicotine can be detected using various screening methods:
Urine nicotine tests = Up to four (4) days
- Blood nicotine tests = Up to ten (10) days
- Saliva nicotine tests = Up to four (4) days
- Hair follicle nicotine tests = Up to three (3) months
As you can see, screening nicotine in urine and saliva is more suitable for immediate situations where physicians or other test administrators want to know how much nicotine is currently present in the individual’s body.
Cotinine urine tests and saliva tests are not ideal for test administrators who want to gain an in-depth understanding of a person’s nicotine use over an extended period of time, however.
In these situations, it is recommended that those testing for nicotine opt for hair follicle screens rather than saliva or nicotine urine tests.
