TobacAlert is the only at-home instant test kit that gives quantitative determination of a person's level of exposure to tobacco product. This home test not only tests for use of cigarettes, pipes, chewing tobacco or cigar of the donor, but can only be used to determine exposure to second hand smoking. 

Primary Uses
Potential users include parents of young children, workers in a smoky workplace and other persons concerned about the harmful effects of second hand smoke. 
Other potential users include smokers trying to quit, parents worried about whether a teenager may be smoking, coaches, insurance companies and counselors for quiting smoking. 

How It Works
The end of the TobacAlert strip contains gold particles coated with an antibody that selectively binds to cotinine in the urine. After the end of the strip is diluted with urine, the gold particles migrate through specialized "traps" in the strip. The more cotinine bound to a gold particle, the further it is able to migrate along the strip. The reddish bands seen on the developed strip correspond to gold particles caught in a particular trap. TobacAlert is extremely sensitive and can measure amounts as low as 10 nanograms of cotinine per milliliter of saliva (6 billionths of a gram in one fifth of a teaspoon).

    I work in a counseling company that caters to those who wish to quit smoking for good. We have been using this test as one of the ways to monitor progress. It's reliable and easy to perform.

    Easy to test and the results were quick

    Was able to test my daughter for exposure to second hand smoke. I was mainly just curious, as I have a lot of smokers in my family and we spend a lot of time at their houses. The test is easy to do (with a five year old, anyway) and the results came back in a timely manner. And my curiosity was satisfied. I’m thinking of getting one for myself now, too.
