The Instant-View Marijuana (THC) urine drug test is a rapid, one step immunoassay designed to detect 11-nor-?-9 THC-9-carboxylic acid (THC) in human urine at a cut-off level of 50 ng/ml. The accuracy rate of this test is >95.9%. This analyte is US FDA Cleared, CE Marked and is available in some OTC Cleared/CLIA-Waived formats.
Tetrahydrocannabinols (THC, ?-9-THC, ?-1-THC) are the most active of the principle constituents, as well as the major metabolites, of cannibinoids such as marijuana and hashish. Cannibinoids are used as central nervous system depressants and can be detectable in urine for 2-5 days (casual use) and 14-30 days (chronic use). The Instant-View Marijuana (THC) urine drug test detects THC in order to evaluate the abuse of cannibinoids. The test is for health care professional use only and provides qualitative screening test results. It is recommended that a more specific alternate chemical method (i.e. GC/MS) be used in order to obtain a confirmed analytical result.
Available in the following formats:
- Cassette with pipette (packaged 25 per kit box)
- Dip strip (packaged 50 per kit box)
- Dip cassette (packaged 25 per kit box)
- It also has the option of being included in the Instant-View multi-drug screen test cards, panels or Split Screen cups.
