Built-In Adulteration Strips Test For:Oxidants, Specific Gravity, and Creatinine
The UScreen instant drug test cup is used for the qualitative detection of multiple drugs in human urine at specified cut-off levels. Uscreen Drugs of Abuse Cup is a competitive immunoassay that is used to detect the presence of various drugs in urine. This quality instant drug test provides peace of mind in just 5 easy steps and has a temperature strip located on the back of the UScreen drug test for specimen integrity.
As soon as this disposable testing device is activated, each strip will absorb the urine by capillary action to mix with the respective drug monoclonal antibody conjugate before flowing across a pre-coated membrane. Results can show up between 60-90 seconds after the UScreen drug test has started in the form of dark test lines on the corresponding drug's individual test strip in which you can photocopy after 5 minutes.
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, such as the iCup, which has built-in adulteration available, 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.
