Multi-Drug Urine Dipcard Documentation
Here are the instructions for Urine Dipcards. If you have any questions about the drug test you have purchased, or are purchasing, let us help!
NOTE: The instructions below show a Rapid Single Drug Urine tests. Multi Drug Urine Dipcards are used in a similar way, with the primary difference being that Multi Drug Urine Dipcards have several panels that need to be submerged in urine (rather than one dipstick). Each panel on a multi Panel Drug Test will test for one to 3 drugs (depending upon the drug screen test being used).
DIRECTIONS FOR DRUG TEST USE
|Allow the drug test panel, urine specimen, and/or controls to come to room temperature (15-30°C) prior to testing.
|1. Bring the pouch to room temperature before opening it. Remove the drug test strip/device from the sealed pouch and use it as soon as possible.
2. Take off the cap outside of the test end. With arrow(s) pointing toward the urine specimen, immerse the drug test panel vertically in the urine specimen for at least 10-15 seconds. Do not pass the arrows on the test panel when immersing the panel. Note illustration shows a 1-Panel Drug Test card. The same procedure is followed for a Multi Drug Urine Dipcard.
3. Place the test panel on a non-absorbent flat surface, start the timer and wait for the colored line(s) to appear. The results should be read at 5 minutes. Do not interpret results after 10 minutes.
INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS
*These drug tests are for forensic purposes only. There are many other test processes that can be utilized to ensure a more accurate positive result. Its recommended that two tests are always utilized to guarantee sample results are accurate.
| NEGATIVE:* Two lines appear. One colored line should be in the control region (C), and another apparent colored or a faded color line adjacent should be in the test region (T). This negative result indicates that the drug concentration is below the detectable level.
*NOTE: The shade of the test line region (T) will vary, but it should be considered negative whenever there is even a faint colored line.
INVALID: Control line fails to appear. Insufficient specimen volume or incorrect procedural techniques are the most likely reasons for control line failure. Review the procedure and repeat the test using a new test panel. If the problem persists, discontinue using the lot immediately and contact your local distributor.
