Urine drug test kits are the perfect low-cost solution for analyzing abused prescription medicines and drugs of abuse, plus alcohol.

The Top Five Reasons for a Drug Test.

  1. Become aware of a loved one or employee is abusing drugs
  2. For employment approval
  3. The suspicion that someone is using
  4. Where an accident has occurred in the workplace
  5. The results are almost instant.

Urine analysis is easy to do and requires no prior experience, you are reminded, however, to read all instructions carefully before proceeding. Be diligent, notarize any abnormalities throughout and observe the donors mannerisms when collecting and testing their sample.

Urine dip card tests are the most common style of analysis and are used by companies and parents when testing at home. The “dip” means that all you have to do is dip the fingers of the device directly into a urine sample.
Benefits include low unit cost, results appear within three to five minutes and are 99% accurate.

Urine cup test kits are the second most common style and are used by customers from many types of organizations. The “cup” means that the drug test is within the cup. The person to be tested (the donor) is asked to urinate directly into the container, and the results appear on the cup.
Benefits include a cleaner testing process and more natural to administer.  One additional benefit, the cup has an integrated heat sensor for checking urine temperature.

What do urine tests do?

They analyze if one or more prescription or illegal drugs are present in urine. They detect the presence of drugs like marijuana (THC), cocaine (COC), opiates (OPI), methamphetamine (mAMP), amphetamines (AMP), phencyclidine (PCP), benzodiazepines (BZO), barbiturates (BZO), methadone (MTD), tricyclic antidepressants (TCA), ecstasy (MDMA), and oxycodone (OXY).

What are drugs of abuse? 

Drugs of abuse are illegal or prescription medicines; Fentanyl, Oxycodone, or Valium are examples that are taken for non-medical purposes. This may be that a prescription drug is being used for longer than prescribed by a doctor or used to get a ‘high.’ Medications are not ‘drugs of abuse’ if they are taken according to the doctor’s order.

What type of test are these?

They are qualitative tests, much like a pregnancy test where you find out if a particular drug may be present in the urine, but not how much.

When should you do these tests?

You should use these tests when you think someone might be abusing prescription or illegal substances. If you are worried about a specific drug, make sure the device is designed to detect the drug you are looking for.

How accurate are these tests?

These tests are fairly sensitive to the presence of drugs in the urine; typically, up to 99%. This means that if drugs are present, you will usually get a presumptive positive result. Note: If the test suggests that drugs may be present, send the sample to a laboratory for additional testing, the lab will confirm your suspicions with a report showing the levels found.

It is very important to send the urine sample to the laboratory to confirm a positive result because certain foods, food supplements, beverages, or medicines can affect the outcome.

Many things can affect the accuracy of the result, including (but not limited to):

  • the way you did the test
  • any over-the-counter drugs the person may have taken before the test
  • the amount and strength of the drug
  • their body mass and metabolic rate.

Does a positive test mean they were using drugs?

No, take action until you get the result from the laboratory. Also, a positive test for a prescription drug does not mean that a person is abusing that medication.

If the result is negative, can you be sure that the person you tested did not abuse drugs?

No, no drug test of this type is 100% accurate. There are several factors that can make the results negative even though the person was abusing drugs.

  • First, did you test for the wrong drugs
  • the urine you tested may have been substituted
  • it takes time for drugs to metabolize in the urine before being detected
  • or you did not test them in time; drugs are only detected in urine for a short period of time
  • it is also possible that the urine was contaminated with an adulterant to mask the drug.

If you get a negative result, but still suspect that someone is using drugs, test them when they least expect it.

Check Urine Integrity.

Always use a Drug Adulteration Test before performing a drug test, and for dip drug tests use a recommended Specimen container: On the side of the container is a thermometer to establish the temperature is within standard parameters.

Be strict when testing and follow the instructions.

In conclusion, follow the testing process strictly to get the desired results. By using either Cup or Dip tests, it’s possible to detect over fifteen different drugs simultaneously. Both are as accurate as each other and results appear within three to five minutes. Send the sample to a SAMHSA certified lab for further analysis if presumed positive.

All our urine drug test kits are FDA cleared for use at home or the workplace. Many carry a CLIA waiver for use by doctors and hospitals too. The results are 99% reliable and consistently accurate.
