Instant Alcohol Testing

EBI’s QED™ (Instant Saliva Alcohol Screen) is an on-site, low-cost alternative to breath or blood testing.  It is an excellent option as a post-accident or just-cause testing method and is approved by the DOT.  It is important to note that this test must be accompanied by a BAT for confirmation.  

Key Benefits:

  • Easy to administer
  • Provides quantitative results
  • EBI provides consent paperwork
  • QED devices are available in packages of 10
  • EBI will train a “collector” to use the QED device
  • EBI’s network will do Breath Alcohol Tests if necessary for confirmation

Breath Alcohol Testing (BAT)

Breath Alcohol Tests are conducted in conjunction with the QED™ to determine the concentration of alcohol in a donor’s specimen.  BATs are conducted in a clinical location by a certified technician and in accordance with DOT regulations.

Key Benefits:

  • BATs are available for Regulated (DOT) and Non-regulated (non-DOT) programs
  • BATs are conducted at clinics in your system, and are performed by certified technicians in strict adherence to DOT guidelines
  • Copies of BAT results are forwarded to you immediately after testing
  • In the event of a non-negative result, the technician will immediately call the Designated Employer Representative (DER) at your company to report the result and to arrange for transportation from the clinic.
