Drug Cassette Test
Dropper, included in the package, protect the test results from
possible mistakes related to dipstrips. In dip strips format you
can overdip or not dip enough and get a wrong result. We have a
variety of drugs detectable in this test.More options available
Single drug tests offer
a simple and low-cost means to test for the presence of a single
drug. Single drug tests are easy-to-use and are available in both
saliva or urine collection form. Drugs that can be tested for using
a single drug test include: opiates, PCP, cocaine, cannabis, barbiturates,
benzodiazepines, amphetamines, methadone, methamphetamines (including
ecstasy), and tricyclic antidepressants.
Many single drug kits
are not designed to detect if a person who registers positive for
drugs is above or below the cut-off concentration levels established
by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration
Mental Health Information Center (SAMHSA) guidelines. This could
be important if a person specifically wants to know their levels
in the event that they think an employer or other formal agency
may perform a random drug test. Many kits register the presence
of drugs by simply displaying a negative or positive symbol; a positive
indicating that drug levels are above the established cut-off levels.
It is important that if you are looking for a test that will give
exact concentration levels that they purchase a test that indicates
of Abuse Urine Cassette Testing Procedure
1. Drug of abuse test cassette device, specimens and controls should
be brought to room temperature (18 - 30 C) prior to testing.
2. Remove the test cassette from its protective foil pouch. Label
the test cassette with patient or control identification and use
the test promptly.
3. Using the supplied dropper-pipette, withdraw the urine sample
from the specimen collection cup.
4. Add 3-4 drops into the sample well (Make sure that the pipette
is held vertically and the complete number of drops is added).
5. Read the results after 10 minutes. It is important that the background
is clear before the results are read. Results obtained after 30
minutes are invalid.
Interpretation of Results of Cassette Drug Testing Procedure
Negative: In addition to one pink colored line in the control (C)
region a distinct pink line will also be present in the test (T)
region. The intensity of the test line may be weaker or stronger
than that of the control line.
Positive: Only one colored line appears in the control (C) region.
No apparent line in the test (T) region. This indicates the presence
of a drug/metabolite at a level greater than cut-off level.
Invalid: No line appears in the control (C) region. An invalid result
may also be due to improper testing procedures or deterioration
of the kit components. Repeat the test using a fresh test cassette.
