Drug Testing Kits
Drug testing is in great demand because substance abuse is a formidable problem in our society. Statistics
regarding the use of specific substances vary depending on the reporting source, but according to recent statistics
an estimated 1 in 68 people or 1.47% of the population or 4 million people in theUnited States have some type of
substance abuse problem. Statistics also show that although the prevalence of illegal drug use is declining among
teenagers, the abuse of legal drugs, in particular prescription painkillers and alcohol, is increasing. Because of
these and other grave statistics professional and home instant result drug testing kits are being more utilized.
Drug test kits come in different varieties with different test sample requirements, depending on the
actual drug that is being tested for but, urine testing is the simplest testing technique and is quite popular
because it is the most economical, fairly accurate, can be conducted in the home or office, and can detect drug use
within the last 1 to 2 weeks, depending on the type of drug being tested for. Urine drug testing kitscan be used to
test for: Cocaine (COC), Marijuana (THC), Opiates (OPI), Methamphetamine (mAMP), Amphetamines (AMP), Phencyclidine
(PCP), Benzodiazepines (BZO), Barbiturates (BAR) Methadone (MTD) and Tricyclic Antidepressants
One of the drawbacks to urine kits is that of the test results can be rendered erroneous by
sample adulteration or sample substitution. Another disadvantage of urine drug test kits is they don't detect
immediate drug abuse, i.e. drug use beginning hours before the test was conducted because the drug(s) being tested
will not have been metabolized and will not show up in the urine during that time frame. To ensure the accuracy of
the test results it is important to make sure that you are using a quality kit and that the test results are
interpreted by a certified laboratory if the testing is being performed with a non-instant drug kit. For

the sample collection is performed properly and according to the instructions accompanying the kit.
