This specimen container is for collection of urine and measuring its temperature.
It features a temperature label affixed to the side and volume scale on the measuring 10 – 180 ml.
The temperature label has a sensor that highlights in a green to blue color indicating the urine temperature. When a donor provides a sample in the container you can easily read the samples temperature. The label senses temperature between 90 and 100°F. (32 to 38°C.)
Read the urine temperature immediately you receive it from a donor. Body temperature is 98.6°F, so we are looking for a reading around that temperature. Allowing for a small amount of cooling prior to testing, the temperature should not be less than 5 degrees cooler. (SEE NOTE below)
The urine sample temperature should be between 93 to 98 °F to be considered good and valid. Samples that have a temperature between 90 to 93 °F in our experience are dubious and should be rejected. Ask the donor to provide a new sample. This part of the process is a very important as we have found that if the urine sample is not within the recommended temperature, it may well be substitute urine!
You can now safely proceed with testing for drugs with a drugs of abuse test.
