The T-Cup 5 panel drug test is a rapid one step test for the qualitative detection of drugs of abuse and their principal metabolites in human urine at a specified cut off level. The T-Cup is a competitive immunoassay that is used to screen for the presence of drugs of abuse in urine. It is a chromatographic absorbent device in which drugs or drug metabolites in a sample competitively combined to a limited number of antibody-dye conjugate binding sites.
When the absorbent end of the test device is immersed into the urine sample, the urine is absorbed into the device by capillary action, mixes with the antibody-dye conjugate, and flows across the pre-coated membrane.
When sample drug levels are at or above the target cutoff, the drug in the sample binds to the antibody-dye conjugate preventing the antibody-dye conjugate from binding to the drug-protein pre-coated in the test region (T). This prevents the development of a distinct colored band in the test region indicating a potentially positive result.
When sample drug levels are 0 or below the target cutoff (the detection sensitivity of the test), antibody-dye conjugate binds to the drug-protein pre-coated in the test region (T) of the device. This produces a colored test line that, regardless of its intensity, indicates a negative result. To serve as a procedure control, a colored line will appear in the control region (C), if the test has been performed properly.
