A rapid test for the qualitative detection of various drugs in human urine.
The DrugControl test is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the detection of various drugs in human urine.
This assay provides only a qualitative, preliminary, analytical test result. A more specific alternate chemical method must be used in order to obtain a confirmed analytical result. Gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) is the preferred confirmatory method. Clinical consideration and professional judgment should be applied to any drug of abuse test result, particularly when preliminary positive results are used.
Test to monitor therapeutic measures. The test casssette combines all benefits of the dipstick and additionally a better visibility due to the black front cover. The result is indicated by a higher contrast which makes the evaluation even easier.
Test principle for THC
DThe DrugControl THC Test is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay based on the principle of competitive binding. Drugs which may be present in the urine specimen compete against the drug conjugate for binding sites on the antibody. During testing, a urine specimen migrates upward by capillary action. Marijuana, if present in the urine specimen below 150 ng/mL, will not saturate the binding sites of the antibody coated particles in the strip. The antibody coated particles will then captured by immobilized THC conjugate and a visible colored line will show up in the test line region. The colored line will not form in the test line region if the Marijuana level is above 150 ng/ml because it will saturate all the binding sites of anti-Marijuana antibodies. A drug-positive urine specimen will not generate a colored line in the test line region because of drug competition, while a drug-negative urine specimen or a specimen containing a drug concentration less than the cut-off will generate a line in the test line region. To serve as a procedural control, a colored line will always appear at the control line region indicating that proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occured.
