The Rapid Detect 8 Panel Drug Test Cup is a lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of multiple drugs and drug metabolites in urine. Drugs which may be present in the urine specimen compete against their respective drug conjugate for binding sites on their specific antibody. Rapid Detect's 8 panel drug test cup test for 8 drugs.
If the cup shows a positive for both Heroin and Morphine, there is a chance that the positive Heroin is cross-reacting with the Morphine, meaning that there IS Heroin in the sample but there may NOT be Morphine in the sample. This is caused by the fact that both drugs are in the same family - Opiates.
Does a faint line indicate a negative result?Yes, faint lines DO indicate negative results. The shade of color in the test region (Drug/T) will vary, but it should be considered a negative result whenever there is even a faint colored line. Any indication of a line (even faint) is a negative result.
Is there specific training required to administer these drug tests?Although there is no official training required to administer the tests, procedure cards are provided as well as, instructional videos, and drug test interpretation quizzes free of charge.
Are any of your drug tests FDA Cleared?All of our urine tests have an FDA 510k clearance except for the new K2 Test Kit, which is waiting for FDA 510 (k) clearance.
Are there products that can be used in the tests to give a false negative? What can be done to avoid this?Although there are only a small handful of products that can be used to change the result of an impending test, there are validity screens available which can detect these adulterants. Some are integrated into the tests, which are built-in adulteration, and we also have individual adulteration strips.
Does the product need to be disposed of in any special way, such as a bio hazard bag?Urine and oral drug screens do not pose a bio hazard risk and can be disposed of in regular waste receptacles.
What is the minimum amount of specimen needed for a conclusive test result?It is always important to collect a sufficient amount of specimen in case of a non-negative result. The confirmation laboratory requires a minimum of 15mL of the specimen but prefers 30mL for urine testing.
Is there any specific way these products need to be stored? Do they have to be refrigerated?All drug test devices can be stored at room temperature up to the date of expiration printed on the individual foil pouch. They cannot be stored in extreme heat or cold and must remain sealed in the foil pouch until use.
How accurate are the test results?Laboratory test results for drugs of abuse have indicated a greater than 97% accuracy when used according to the step-by-step instructions that are provided with the test.
Are there any legal medications that can trigger positive results?Yes.
The most common problem is the pseudoephedrine in many over-the-counter sinus and cold medications, which can cause a positive result for methamphetamine. A GC/MS confirmation, as well as an MRO review, is necessary to determine the source of the positive result. Some forms of the drugs we test for may be available legally under prescription as well.
