6 panel drug test.
EliteScreen 6 panel test for drugs is a rapid urine ‘dip test’ for six drugs. Available in three options so you will always find the right test for establishing possible drug abuse.
This device is classed as a qualitative immunoassay designed for screening drug metabolites at the cut-off levels specified by National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA). The reason for fixed cut-off levels gives consistency and accuracy when testing. Manufactured for accuracy and reliability! Each test drug panel has been cleared by the FDA with a FDA 510(k) clearance. It has also been approved by CLIA establishing it as a test that needs no prior knowledge or professional training to be safely used at home or the workplace.
6 panel drug test overview:
This is a urine test which consists of six individual test panels. Each test panel detects a specific substance. The device is called an assay with a one step lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay based on the principle of competition for limited antibody binding sites between a drug or drug metabolites. During testing, urine migrates to the test area of the membrane by capillary action, mobilizing the colored antibody conjugates. The antibody conjugates then moves along the membrane to the test area where it displays the result of the test with reddish/pink bars indicating the result of the test.

How to test:
Collect a fresh sample of urine from the donor in a suitable container. We recommend a container with a temperature strip. Collect around 2 fl oz (50 ml) and observe the temperature. It should be between 93 to 98° F.
Step 1. Remove the cap to the test card and place on one side.
Step 2. Gently submerge the six tips of the test card into the urine sample. Be careful not to fully submerge as this will flood the test. Keep the tips in the urine for around twenty seconds.
Step 3. Place the test card on a flat clean surface.
Step 4. Observe the apparent lines develop in the test result windows.

Interpreting the 6 panel drug test:
In the absence of a drug or if the concentration is below the cut-off in the urine sample, the colored conjugates attach to the respective drug antigen immobilized in the test line region, forming a colored band (T) line. If a substance is found in the urine sample, the drug or drug metabolites compete for the limited antibody binding sites.
The control line (C line) serves as an internal quality control for the test on each panel. It will always appear as a colored band regardless of the presence of the drug.
Negative. If the drug concentration is below the cut-off limit, the binding sites of the antibody will not affect the conjugates to the antigen in the test line area of the membrane. And so a colored line will form.
Presumptive positive. If the drug concentration is at or above the cut-off limit, the drug will saturate all the binding sites of the antibody, preventing the attachment of the colored conjugates to the antigen in the test line area of the membrane. And so no colored line will form.
Invalid: Each test panel has a built-in control feature. This is called the control (C) line. The presence of the (C) line indicates that an adequate sample volume of urine was used and that the reagents migrated properly. If a (C) line does not form, the result is invalid. Discard the device and start the testing process with a new drug test kit.
