COCAINE DRUG TEST – COC Drug Test – FDA,CE certified

COCAINE DRUG TEST (COC Drug Test)

Urinalysis is the most frequently used and least expensive form of cocaine drug testing devices used by organizations today. The results are taken from a urine sample on the cocaine drug test which provides information and indication of recent cocaine drug use. The Cocaine Drug Test is fast, accurate, and easy to perform.  These are the same cocaine drug tests that are usually sold to employers, courts, schools, drug counselors, and rehab centers. An ideal cocaine drug test kit for employees, schools, and rehab centers, these cocaine drug testing kits are easy to use and are highly recommended by our distributors.

WHY A COCAINE DRUG TEST?

Sometimes drug testing is an important part of the hiring process for a business, and a cocaine drug test can specifically catch violators at the outset if they have had recent cocaine drug use.  Usually, the hiring company contracts with an independent laboratory to conduct pre-employment drug tests.  In this instance, a potential employee is asked to get a cocaine drug test, or a multi drug test, at this particular drug testing facility.  Drug testing is also an important preventative measure to guard against workplace accidents by employees.  Cocaine drug testing devices, and any multi drug test, can help the businesses screen employees for illegal drug use, especially for marijuana and cocaine.  Cocaine drug tests, and multi drug test kits, are also popular at educational and sports facilities to screen for illegal drugs such as cocaine, marijuana, opiates, amphetamines, and methamphetamines.  The easy-to-use cocaine drug tests are frequently requested by rehab facilities who want to specifically test their clients for cocaine drug use.

HOW A COCAINE DRUG TEST WORKS

Our Cocaine Drug Test (COC Drug Test) is an immunochromatography based one step in vitro test. This cocaine drug test is designed for qualitative determination of cocaine drug substances in human urine specimens.

 

The Cocaine Drug Testing device is based on the principle of specific immunochemical reaction between antibodies and antigens to analyze particular compounds in human urine specimen. The assay relies on the competition for binding antibody between drug conjugate and free drug which may be present in the urine specimen being tested. When the cocaine drug is present in the urine specimen, it competes with drug conjugate for the limited amount of antibody-dye conjugate. When the amount of the cocaine drug is equal or more than the cut-off, it will prevent the binding of drug conjugate to the antibody. Therefore, a positive urine specimen on the Cocaine Drug Test will not show a colored band on the test line zone, indicating a positive result, while the presence of a colored band indicates a negative result. A control line is present in the test window to work as procedural control. This colored band should always appear on the control line zone if the Cocaine Drug testing device is stored in good condition and the Cocaine Drug Test is performed appropriately.

 

This Cocaine Drug Test (COC Drug Test) provides only a preliminary analytical test result. A more specific alternative chemical method must be used in order to obtain a confirmed analytical result. Gas chromatography/ mass spectrometry (GC/MS) has been established as the preferred confirmatory method by the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Clinical consideration and professional judgment should be applied to any drug of abuse test result, particularly when preliminary positive results are indicated.

 

The optional built-in Adulteration Test is for validation of urine specimen’s integrity and must not be used for In Vitro diagnostic use. The cutoff level for this Cocaine Drug Test (COC Drug Test) is 300 ng/ml of benzoylecgonine. For customized cutoff level cocaine drug tests, please contact Customer Service. This Cocaine Drug Test (COC Drug Test) is available in multi-panel, cassette, strip, or cup format.

ADULTERATION OF DRUG TESTS – PASSING A URINE DRUG TEST

ADULTERATION OF DRUG TESTS – PASSING A URINE DRUG TEST

Urine sample adulteration on drug tests, in order to purposely pass a drug test, is a serious problem.  Thousands of Internet sites promise assistance to people who want to pass a drug test.  Some individuals may use recreational drugs infrequently, but even if they do, they become suspect on a random drug test, for example, at the workplace.  There is a huge market for products that promise to eliminate traces of drug substances from urine in order to pass a drug test, but many of these products don’t work or contain ingredients that are screened on drug tests in laboratories.

 

Adulteration of a drug test is loosely defined as manipulating a urine specimen with the intention of altering the drug test results in order to pass the drug test.  Users of illicit drugs have attempted to pass drug tests by adding foreign substances (adulterants) to their urine after collection.  The use of adulterants before submitting to a drug test can cause false negative results in drug tests by either interfering with the screening test and/ or destroying the drugs present in the urine. Dilution may also be employed in an attempt to produce false negative drug test results.  A person may attempt to pass a drug test by drinking excessive amounts of water and other foreign substances.

 

The validity of the drug test program depends on the integrity of the urine sample on the drug test.  To detect for the presence of these adulterants, labs, hospitals, medical centers, doctors’ offices, treatment facilities, schools, private businesses, etc. have greatly improved their methods in performing accurate urine drug tests.  Urine is the specimen of choice on a drug test since it contains the most metabolites.  One of the best ways to test for adulteration or dilution on a urine drug test is to determine certain urinary characteristics such as creatinine, pH, and specific gravity and to detect the presence of glutaraldehyde, nitrite and oxidants/pyridinium chlorochromate (PCC), such as bleach and hydrogen peroxide, in urine.

 

Drug testing has become commonplace for many new job applicants, random drug testing in the workplace occurs more frequently, and drug testing may be a requirement for many other situations.  For example, urine drug testing has become an important part of judicial drug testing for courts, lawyers, and forensic drug investigations.

 

Diagnostic Automation/Cortez Diagnostics, Inc., a company committed to making the best quality drug tests at fair and competitive prices worldwide, and a leading provider of drug test services, offers top of the line urine drug test kits.  Our Rapid Test Kit for urinalysis is one of the most popular drug test kits ordered by our customers.  These widely-used drug test kits are the most accurate and inexpensive drug tests in detecting adulterated urine specimens on drug tests.  These Urine Rapid Test Kits allow for quick and accurate urine analysis drug test results.  These convenient and easy to use urine analysis drug test kits can immediately detect any drug adulteration that would falsely identify a pass drug analysis.   The FDA, CE, and Health Canada approved Rapid Test Kits are thus the perfect worldwide drug test devices in use today.

Drug Testing – Cocaine Drug Test – (COC Drug Test)

Drug Testing – Cocaine Drug Test – (COC Drug Test)

Mandatory drug testing in the United States became popular in the 1980s, led by gradually expanding federal government requirements.  The federal government first ordered drug testing in the military, then extended the requirement for drug testing to federal workers.  Meanwhile, private employers were persuaded on their own to drug test by statistics showing that drug users are more likely than other workers to file workers’ compensation claims, be involved in a workplace accident, or create various disciplinary problems.  Many diagnostic laboratories which conduct preemployment and random workplace drug testing, are seeing increased uses of cocaine and marijuana.  Therefore, faced with increased use of some drugs in the workplace, some health officials say more employers should consider implementing drug-testing programs.

 

There are many different kinds of drug tests available to measure cocaine on drug tests.  We offer a number of the most superior quality, top-of-the-line drug testing kits available on the market.  Our drug tests kits include everything you need to administer drug testing in your laboratory, medical office, business, hospital or educational organization.   We also offer popular drug test kits for various other drugs, ELISA drug test kits, CLIA Waved Drug Tests, Strip drug tests, 2 panel drug tests, multi panel drug tests, and cassette drug tests.  We are always improving our comprehensive line of drug test kits, thus offering to you the utmost in selection of the highest quality products available for drug testing.

A popular choice for cocaine drug testing is to have the subject provide a urine sample on the drug test.  A urine drug test is relatively inexpensive and can detect relatively recent (within the past seven days) use as well as long-term exposure to the drug.  Urine drug test kits are available as on-site tests, or laboratory analysis. Urinalysis is the most common drug test type and used by federally mandated drug testing programs and is considered the Gold Standard of drug testing.   The drug tests are drug metabolite specific.  Commonly ingested substances such as vitamins, penicillin, aspirin, caffeine, and acetaminophen will not affect the drug test nor interfere with the drug test results.  The cocaine drug is detectable by standard drug tests on urine up to 72 hours after use.  However, drug tests may detect the cocaine drug with long-term, habitual users who may have traces of the cocaine drug in their system for longer than the standard three days.
