Alcohol Testing<br />White Glove conducts regulated and non-regulated breath and saliva alcohol testing. We use only certified BATs & STTs for both facility and on-site testing needs. <br /> Our breath alcohol testing is conducted utilizing an Alco Sensor IV EBT device in conjunction with Alco Sensor IV @ Work software. This state of the art software is designed for workplace testing. It takes the Breath Alcohol Technician (BAT) through a step by step process which follows either the DOT testing guidelines or a non DOT test. The program not only prompts the operator through the test itself producing the required printed results, but it also helps the operator follow the proper QA procedures and records the data for easy retrieval if required at a later point in time. <br />Our saliva alcohol testing is conducted utilizing DOT approved AlcoScreen O2 saliva test strips, by certified Screening Test Technicians (STT).<br />
