Advantages of Multi Panel Drug Testing Kits

Today there are several drug testing methods and multi panel drug testing kits available to serve everyone’s needs.   Our multi drug tests come with a built-in control that indicates if the multi drug test is working or not.  Multi drug test means that more than one drug can be tested simultaneously, and the multi panel drug test will display the results all at one time.  The ease of using this multi panel drug test makes it suitable for all instances of drug testing, in private or public drug testing sites.  Our multi drug test kits are designed for use in all types of facilities that include hospitals and laboratories, workplaces, schools, sports organizations, correctional institutions, counseling services, law enforcement agencies, rehab facilities, and judicial courts, especially in forensic drug detection.   Multi panel drug tests are very effective when the multi panel drug test kit is used for random testing.  With random testing, there are fewer chances for a person to clear if more than one drug was abused.

 

Multi panel drug test  can detect a number of drugs present in any combination in a single sample of urine at first attempt.  The primary objective of multi panel drug testing kits is to test for several drugs in a single sample at one time.  Since a number of drugs can be tested through one drug test kit, there is no need to conduct separate drug tests for each drug, thus saving time and expense.    A multi panel drug test is beneficial when the presence of multiple drugs has to be known quickly.  The advantage of the multi panel drug test kit over single panel drug test kits is that even if one drug may be known to be present in the metabolism, the multi panel drug test kit will automatically detect any other hidden drug substance, not known, that may be present in the body at the time.  This saves time and cost to the user.   Multi drug test kits are also safe, secure, and simple to use.

 

Quick and Accurate Multi Panel Drug Test Results

The multi panel drug test kit is easy to use and the results are easy to read. These multi panel drug tests are very easy to administer, and the results provided by multi panel drug tests are quick, accurate, and reliable.

 

The Multi Panel 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 any drug or drug combination is present in the urine specimen, it competes with drug conjugate for the limited amount of antibody-dye conjugate. When the amount of the drug on the multi panel drug test 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 Multi Panel 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 multi panel drug testing device is stored in good condition and the multi panel drug test is performed appropriately.  This multi panel drug test is available in strip, cassette, and cup format.

 

Accurate Multi Panel Drug and Alcohol Test Kits

Reliable Multi Panel Drug and Alcohol Test Results

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 blood alcohol concentration (BAC) at which a person becomes impaired is variable. The United States Department of Transportation (DOT) has established a BAC of 0.02% (0.02g/dL) as the cut-off level at which an individual is considered positive for the presence of alcohol.  The Multi Panel Drug and Alcohol Test Kit provides easy-to-read results in minutes. Since urine alcohol concentration is normally higher than that in saliva and blood, the cutoff concentration for alcohol in urine is set at 0.04%; therefore, the cutoff level for this Multi Panel Drug and Alcohol Test is 0.04%

QUESTIONS ABOUT ALCOHOL – ALCOHOL EDUCATION

 

Many private and public institutions ask about alcohol and drug tests.   Questions about alcohol and drug tests are frequently posed to our customer representatives.  Drug testing and alcohol testing is common in the workplace, at school, rehab facilities, and in the judicial courts.  Perhaps the largest legal, social, and economic issue in the workplace is the use of drugs and alcohol.  The reality for employers is that drug and alcohol use can affect employees’ health and productivity and impact safety in the workplace.  Starting with an Alcohol education is an important part of understanding the effects of combining alcohol and drugs by individuals, and many companies are finding the internet a good place to start getting information about alcohol, what is alcohol, alcohol and drug use, and alcohol and drug testing devices that are available.

 

The questions about alcohol and what is alcohol can be answered by looking at the effects of alcohol.  When a person drinks alcohol, the alcohol is absorbed by the stomach, enters the bloodstream, and goes to all the tissues.  When alcohol is ingested, it is absorbed directly from the proximal small intestine and distributed throughout the entire fluid space of the body.  After equilibrium is reached, alcohol will be found in all tissues of the body in proportion to their water content.  Urine is the most practical specimen for alcohol testing.  Peak urine alcohol levels are reached 45 to 60 minutes after alcohol ingestion.  At this time, urine alcohol levels are typical about 1.3 times greater than the corresponding blood alcohol concentration.  This ratio is only valid during the elimination phase, which occurs after the blood alcohol level has peaked and is decreasing.  Alcohol may be detected in the urine for 1 to 2 hours longer than it is detected in blood.

 

EFFECTS OF ALCOHOL

 

Effects of alcohol use depend on a variety of factors, including a person’s size, weight, age, sex, and the amount of food and alcohol consumed.  The effects of moderate alcohol consumption includes dizziness and talkativeness; large amounts of alcohol include slurred speech, insomnia, and nausea.  Alcohol impairs judgment and coordination required in the workplace and in driving a car.  Alcohol consumption at any level can cause aggressive or even violent behavior at home, school, or at the workplace.  Prolonged, heavy use of alcohol can lead to addiction, commonly known as alcoholism.  Withdrawal symptoms occur when alcohol intake is stopped.  Long-term effects of consuming large quantities of alcohol can lead to permanent damage to vital organs, such as the liver, causing cirrhosis of the liver.  Mothers who drink alcohol during pregnancy may give birth to infants with fetal alcohol syndrome.  In addition, research shows that children of alcoholic parents are at greater risk than other children of becoming alcoholics.  Acute alcohol intoxication can lead to loss of alertness, coma, and even death.

 

ABOUT ALCOHOL AND DRUG COMBINATIONS

 

Hundreds of studies show that combining alcohol and drugs is extremely dangerous.  The simple fact is that alcohol is a drug, and when alcohol consumption is combined with other drugs, it can be lethal.  For example, alcohol and depressants can slow down the central nervous system, produce loss of coordination, cause coma, and result in high risk of overdose and death.  Alcohol and anti-depressants increase central nervous system depression and cause massive blood pressure increases which can result in brain hemorrhage and death.  Alcohol and antibiotics decrease the effectiveness of antibiotics and cause other problems such as headaches, nausea, low blood pressure, or irregular heart beat.  Alcohol and opiates (heroin and morphine) can lead to serious nervous system depression and death.  Alcohol and marijuana (cannabis) more than doubles the effect of marijuana and increases the absorption of toxins.  Alcohol and cocaine can increase blood pressure and when alcohol and cocaine are mixed, the body converts their broken-down products into cocaethylene, a chemical more deadly than cocaine, which increases the risk of overdose.

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.

Our Cocaine Drug Test (COC Drug Test) is an immunochromatography based one step in vitro test. This 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.
