Urine Adulteration Test Strips

Home drug tests have become popular among employers who want an affordable and fast way to detect drug use among applicants and employees. The problem with these home drug tests that use urine sampling, however, is that these samples can be tampered with to display negative or invalid results. This problem can be solved, though, by using urine adulteration strips.

What Are Adulterants?

Urine Adulteration Strips are a one-step, semi-quantitative color comparison screen that can detect the levels of different adulterants commonly used for attempted urine adulteration:

  • Creatinine
  • Nitrite
  • Glutaraldehyde
  • pH
  • Specific Gravity
  • Oxidant
  • Pyridinium Chlorochromate
It is best to use these strips to make sure that your urine sample is ready to pass a drug screening test.

Chemically treated reagent pads are contained in the Urine Adulteration Strips, which change color when activated. To use, simply dip the strip in a fresh, well-mixed urine sample and immediately remove it from the sample to avoid contamination. Put the edge of the strip on an absorbent material to avoid mixing with other chemicals or reagents.

You will find out whether the urine sample has been adulterated or diluted in within 5 minutes--just compare the color on the strip with the colors on the container color chart.

Drug screening is an important step to combating drug use and abuse. Take this even further by using Urine Adulteration Strips to make sure that no cheating is involved in your drug screening.
