We believe people have the right to live in a clean environment.
Swab First was developed by 4 health professionals with qualifications and experience in the fields of risk assessment, public and environmental health, toxicology, and occupational hygiene.
The Swab First system was developed because we recognised a growing need to provide people with reliable, accessible and affordable information about the chemical cleanliness of their homes. We achieve this by providing a unique and rigorous sampling system for the collection of samples which are analysed at our National drug laboratory.
As health professionals, we also conduct our own research:
How is Swab First different?
Border control and law enforcement screening into your home
We detect drug residues at internationally accepted concentrations that specify when further investigation is required.
Increased sampling density
We don’t base our detection limits on Guideline levels. By using accepted border control and law enforcement limits, we are able to sample many more surfaces within the home. This provides a more accurate measure of chemical distribution and provides you with greater confidence in the results.
Greater range of substances and fast results
We don’t just test for methamphetamine. We report on nicotine, methamphetamine, amphetamine, heroin, cocaine, cannabis and ecstasy.
Results are provided within 48 hours of the swab being received at our National laboratory.
Easy to understand results
We tell you if the 7 drug residues are present or absent so you can decide if living with drug residues is important to you.
We do not benefit from positive results
We do not provide any follow up work such as quantitative (forensic) testing or remediation. If you want to access these services we can recommend reputable companies which are independent of Swab First.
