BAR Rapid Test kit Background Information
Barbiturates are a group of prescription drugs that are frequently abused. Barbiturate drugs can depress the central nervous system. Acute higher dose of barbiturate drugs induces exhilaration, sedation and respiratory depression. More acute responses to barbiturate drugs produce respiratory collapse and coma. The effects of short-acting barbiturate drugs, such as secobarbital last 3 to 6 hours. The effects of long-acting barbiturate drugs such as phenobarbital last 10 to 20 hours. Short-acting barbiturate drugs normally remain detectable in urine for 4 to 6 days, while long-acting barbiturate drugs can be detected for up to 30 days. Barbiturate drugs are excreted in the urine in unchanged forms, hydroxylated derivatives, carboxylated derivatives and glucuronide conjugates.

BAR drug Rapid Test Principle
The Barbiturates 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 a barbiturate drug is present in the urine specimen, it competes with drug conjugate for the limited amount of antibody-dye conjugate. When the amount of a barbiturate 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 Barbiturates 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 Barbiturates drug testing device is stored in good condition and the Barbiturates drug test is performed appropriately. See product insert for more details and additional information.

The cutoff level for this Barbiturates Drug Test (BAR Drug Test) is 300 ng/ml of secobarbital. For customized cutoff level barbiturate drug tests, please contact Customer Service. This Barbiturates Drug Test (BAR Drug Test) is available in multi-panel, cassette, strip, or cup format. Diagnostic Automation/Cortez Diagnostics offers additional drug tests.
