Drug Adulteration Test Strip.
Drug Adulteration Test Strip is a simple device that will establish the integrity of human urine by testing for seven different adulterants.
The donor’s urine integrity has to be within standard parameters for dip and cup devices to work as designed. Donors who try to cheat their test will do what is needed to pass. Tampering with their sample by substitution or adding adulterants is standard practice. Catch this by checking the urine integrity.
Drug adulteration strips are designed to evaluate a donor’s urine sample comprehensively. It’s an alert of many abnormalities when trying to mask their drug abuse. Only when the donor’s example is balanced and has the correct pH level, specific gravity and their creatinine levels are normal will they pass.
How can a urine sample be masked?
Adulterants placed in a urine example will cause false negatives either by interfering with the screening device and or by destroying the presence of drugs. Dilution of urine with water is probably the simplest urine adulteration method. Bleach, vinegar, Visine, sodium bicarbonate, sodium nitrite, Drano, soft drinks and hydrogen peroxide are examples of adulterants that can compromise a drug test.
Why you should check a donor’s urine:
Every drug test will be compromised and cover up the actual result. Collector/administrators have found that by using a drug adulteration test with every drug test trips up the cheaters. Using a drug adulteration test strip is the most effective way to monitor their urine. If you don’t check their sample, they win and pass their test.
The NIH recommends checking pH and specific gravity with a Drug Adulteration Test for initial and confirmatory tests. Below is a list of what this device looks for:
- Creatinine: Detects waste product called creatine present in human urine.
- Glutaraldehyde: Tests for the presence of an exogenous aldehyde.
- Nitrites: Detects for commonly used commercial adulterants.
- Oxidants: Detects the presence of oxidants.
- pH: Tests for the presence of acidic and alkaline adulterants.
- BL: Tests for bleaching products.
- Specific Gravity: Tests for sample dilution.
There is nothing more comprehensive a test than this. Start using it today and weed out the cheaters. No pun intended.
