Single 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 by request.

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 this ability.

Single Drugs 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.
