What is the Difference Between Nicotine and Cotinine?
Tobacco products, which often contain nicotine additives, are either smoked, ingested, chewed, or vaporized. It is important to note that a tobacco or nicotine test actually screens for Cotinine, the primary metabolite and biomarker of nicotine. Cotinine is detectable in blood, saliva, and urine specimens.
Can a Nicotine Test Detect Exposure to Secondhand Smoke?
Depending on the duration and frequency of exposure, most urine and saliva nicotine tests are sensitive enough to detect secondhand exposure to environmental tobacco smoke (ETS).
Detects use of cigarettes, pipes, chewing tobacco or cigar of the donor, but can also be used to determine exposure to secondhand smoke.
