Valuable Benefits Of Home Drug Test Kits
Panel drug test kits that detect SAMHSA 5 drugs (previously called as NIDA 5 drugs) are popular at workplaces. SAMHSA 5 drugs include Marijuana (THC), Cocaine (COC), Amphetamines (AMP), Opiates (OPI) and Phencyclidine (PCP).
Half life of the most commonly abused prescription drugs follows: The painkiller opiates, such as Vicodin, hydrocodone, hydrocodeine, oxycontin, Percocet, and oxycodone all have a half life between 4 and 6 hours. Anti-anxiety benzodiazepines such as Xanax and Valium have a half life between 14-18 hours.
Once the test is administered, the results are supposed to be read exactly at 5 minutes or between 3-8 minutes. The results taken before 3 minutes or after 8 minutes are considered to be invalid. So, keep a stop watch and see the results exactly at 5 minutes to get accurate results. Many people often confuse while reading the results. Here is a simple way of interpreting them.
When the end of the test strip is dipped into the urine sample, the urine gets absorbed into the device, mixes with the anti-body dye conjugate and flows across the test region. If the urine sample has zero drug levels or below the cut-off, antibody-dye conjugate binds to the drug/protein conjugate in the Test Region (T) of the device, forming a colored line in the Test Region, indicating a negative result.
Regular testing at schools removes the barrier to students' academic achievement. Illicit drugs impair memory and learning skills in students. Also, drug abusing students are likely to lose interest in studies, miss classes, get lower grades, and show poor attitude towards other school activities. These tests reduce students drug abusing habits and help them maintain their performance at school.
MDMA drug abuse can be identified using urine drug testing method. Testing should be done on the same day of specimen collection immediately after collecting urine samples. The sample should be clear without any fragments. Prior to testing urine samples should be maintained at room temperature compulsorily.
When applicants' tests are positive, they can enter a drug rehabilitation program and reapply six months later. Under these circumstances, the parents may designate another individual to receive TANF on behalf of the children.
Oral Fluids: Saliva, or oral fluids, collected from the mouth also can be used to detect traces of drugs and alcohol. Oral fluids are easy to collect (a swab of the inner cheek is the most common collection method), harder to adulterate or substitute, and may be better at detecting specific substances, including marijuana, cocaine and amphetamines/methamphetamines. Because drugs do not remain in oral fluids as long as they do in urine, this method shows promise in determining current use and impairment.
