More Information about the Test and the Drugs


AccuQuik™ diagnostic test kits for drugs provide high quality substance detection via qualitative immunoassays. The tests detect narcotic substances and their metabolites in the urine or serum sample. The narcotic detection tests work according to the principle of competitive binding of the narcotic substance and/or its metabolites to the test strip.

The tests should be taken approximately within a week of any suspected narcotic activity however this varies depending on which narcotic substance is being tested for. A result will be available in 10 minutes.

Some prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications may affect the result, such as antidepressants. The AccuQuik™ narcotics tests are very sensitive with low detection thresholds allowing for over 99% accuracy.

The tests can be used for a variety of different situations, each calling for a different mode of action depending on the result. In most cases it is recommended to consult a doctor or healthcare provider in the case of a positive result. Temperature tests can also be taken at the time of sampling to prevent the patient switching the samples with another sample to avoid detection.

AccuQuik™ promotes the use of the narcotics test kits for: amphetamine, barbiturate, buprenorphine, benzodiazepine, cocaine, ketamine, MDMA ecstasy, methamphetamine, morphine, methadone, phencyclidine, THC marijuana and multi-drug panel tests.

Narcotics

General Information

Narcotics are psychoactive compounds that are under strict governmental regulation, with the substances normally classified as dangerous and illegal. The consumption of narcotic substances, whether for recreational or therapeutic purposes, can cause a wide range of unwanted side effects and can ultimately lead to addiction and possible death.

Addiction occurs due to the activation of basic pleasure and reward circuits in the brain, commonly involving the chemical dopamine. Once in the body the narcotic will be metabolized, causing a biochemical modification of the substance. The rate at which the narcotic substance is metabolized influences the intensity and duration of the pharmacological activity. Narcotic toxins are released into blood stream when body fat is metabolized, then filtered through the kidneys and excreted as urine.

The period during which the narcotic substance and its metabolites can be detected in the bodily fluids is known as the detection window. The length of the detection window depends on multiple factors including the drug class, the amount taken, the frequency of use, metabolic rate, body mass, age, overall health and urine pH. There are rough estimates indicating the average detection window for each narcotic substance under normal conditions, as shown below.

Treatments

If a patient tests positive for narcotics the first step should be to retake the test to confirm the result. If a positive test has been confirmed then it is important not to only focus on the disciplinary process, but to also consider the process of rehabilitation for the patient.

The treatment of a positive result will depend on the individual and the situation, and should be handled professionally with everyone’s best interest in mind. The individual should stop taking the narcotic substance, and should try to regain a healthy lifestyle involving regular exercise and a balanced diet. The individual should be monitored and supported throughout the rehabilitation process to ensure mental and physical wellbeing on their road to recovery.

Drugs Test Kits FAQs



When should the drugs test kits be used?
The drugs test kits can be used for a variety of reasons. In general the tests are a way of proving whether an individual has taken any narcotic substance. The tests can be used for sportsmen and women to confirm the absence of narcotic substances prior to competition. The tests can also be used to discourage the use of narcotics by adolescents, through random testing by parents. The tests can be used to test individuals as a condition of employment, or for routine employee drug checks.
Will the test indicate when the drug was taken or how much was taken?
No. The test can give a slight indication as to the concentration of the narcotic substance in the urine. However, there are many factors other than time that will influence this concentration, for example fluid intake. As a general rule, if the drug was taken recently, or a high dose was taken, then the concentration in the urine will be higher.
Will the multi-panel narcotics test indicate which drug was taken?
Yes, the multi-panel tests will indicate which narcotic substances are present in the urine, providing the test has been configured to test for the substance. We are able to configure the multi-panel tests to detect a customers’ preferred array of narcotics. The tests will then indicate which narcotics are present, and which are absent following exposure to urine.
Can the drugs test kits be used at home?
Yes, our drugs test kits are simple and easy to use, only requiring a fresh urine sample from the individual who is being tested. The results can be read visually after 10-15 minutes. Following use the test strip should be disposed of in a hygienic manner.
How accurate are AccuQuik™ drugs test kits?
Our drugs test kits are 99% accurate. If you think you may have produced a false result then taking another test will confirm whether the result.
What could cause a false positive while taking a drugs test?
Drug tests can produce a false positive if the individual is using certain medications, such as antihistamines or cold medications. Vicks inhalers have also been shown to produce false positives. Prescription drugs taken for depression can also produce false positives, such as bupropion, which can also be found in drugs used to relieve nicotine cravings. It is recommended to talk with your doctor or healthcare provider about whether any prescription or over the counter drugs you take could lead to a false positive test result.
How to prevent the patient from trying to “beat” the drug test?
There are several precautions that can be taken to prevent the patient from trying to produce a fake result. If you are in a hospital setting then it would be appropriate to ask the patient to put on a gown before entering into the bathroom, preventing them from taking in any other urine samples which may be hidden in their clothes. The patient may try to dilute the urine sample by adding water from the bathroom to the sample. To prevent this from happening, turn the water off from the taps and add a colorless substance to the toilet water which will produce an abnormal result in the test. In addition, it is common to perform a temperature check of the patient and the urine sample to make sure the sample came from the patient and not from another individual. It is not possible to stop the patient from seeking out other substances that can be taken before the test to prevent detection of the narcotic in the urine, however these substances are often illegally obtained and the patient cannot be sure that they will work or be safe.
