Cocaine Dip Strip Home Urine Test
The Cocaine (COC) Dip Strip Home Urine Test has the cutoff level 300 ng/ml of COC, as recommended by SAMHSA. It is an immunochromatographic assay that easily and quickly determines benzoylecgonine (the primary metabolite of cocaine) in urine. This product is not difficult to use since it only involves one-step method on its utilization.
Cocaine is introduced into the body by smoking or through oral, intranasal or intravenous injection, and is removed from the body through urine as benzoylecgonine. Cocaine has a half-life of 0.5 to 1.5 hours while benzoylecgonine has 5 to 8 hours and can be seen in urine after 24 to 80 hours of usage of cocaine.
The principle of work of the Cocaine Dip Strip Home Urine Test is based on the immunochemical reactions among antibodies and antigens. These are utilized in the study of particular components in biological fluids. The test possesses a sensitivity of 300ng/ml.
How the Test is Performed
- Open the foil pouch and get the test strip out.
- Mindfully dip the strip into the sample while holding it in a vertical position. Carefully take note of the maximum line because you should not submerge the strip beyond it.
- The result can be determined after three to five minutes.
How to Determine the Result
The test kit is equipped with a Control Band which appears as the test kit starts to function. This is found on the left side of the result window. On the other hand, another color band is seen on the right side which is called the Test Band. This band shows the results of the test.
The test is concluded positive when one color band appears in the result window. A positive result means that the specimen has a concentration of COC above the cutoff level.
The test is considered negative when two color bands appear in the result window. The Control Band may be lighter or darker in color than the Test Band. A negative result signifies that there is no COC beyond the cutoff level.
The test is considered invalid when no color band is present on the left side of the result window. Hence, a well-defined color band must always be seen in order to determine whether the result is positive or negative.
The level of COC in the sample is close or below the limit when a barely visible bar is seen within 5 minutes in the right side of the result window.
Occasionally home drug tests produce false positive results. In this case, the urine sample needs to be tested again to confirm the result using a more intricate and reliable method, like Gas Chromatography / Mass Spectrometry.
