Drug Testing Instructions

Drug testing instructions help the consumer with testing procedures. They are included in all of our products and they come quick reminder on the label.

  1. Bring the drug test cup, specimen, and/ or controls to room temperature (59-78 degrees F) before use of stored at refrigerated temperatures. Remove the cup from the sealed pouch and use it as soon as possible.
  2. Have the donor date and initial the body label.
  3. The donor provides a urine specimen in the drug testing cup and screws the cap on top of it. Start timer immediately.
  4. The operator checks the cap for tightness.
  5. Remove the peel-off label.
  6. Check the temperature strip label at 2-4 minutes after specimen collection for the fresh urine specimen. A green color will appear to indicate the temperature of the urine specimen. The proper range for an unadulterated specimen is 90-100 degree F (32-38 degree C).
  7. Drug test results are indicated by the presence or absence of colored band(s) in the result area of the test strips. The result should be read at 5 minutes. Do not interpret the result after 8 minutes.
  8. Positive test results must be confirmed by another drug testing method. Send the cup and urine specimen intact to a toxicology laboratory for confirmation.

Interpretation of results

Positive: Only one colored band appears, in the control region(c). No colored band appears in the test region (T) for the drug in question. A positive result indicated that the drug concentration exceeds the detectable level.

Negative: Two colored bands appear on the membrane. One band appears in the control region © and another band appears in the test region (T) for the drug in question. A negative result indicates that the drug concentration is below the detectable level.

Invalid: Control band fails to appear. Results from any test which has not produced a control band at the specified read time must be discarded. Please review the procedure and repeat with a new test. If the problem persists, discontinue using the kit immediately and contact your local distributor.
