NicAlert® : A Simple and Cost Effective Way to Monitor Exposure to Tobacco Products

NicAlert® is a simple, cost-effective test to determine smoking status. It is an easy-to-read test strip that can be used with either a saliva or a urine sample.

NicAlert® can help:

  • smokers and family members to get a more accurate measure of their smoking;
  • parents to check whether their teenaged children are smoking;
  • teachers and high school coaches to test high school athletes for smoking or other tobacco product use;
  • to verify smoking status for insurance applications;
  • to test subjects in tobacco research studies.

There are many new significant opportunities for the development and expansion of state-funded research and tobacco prevention and cessation programs.
