Contraindications:Urine specimen should be collected and tested as soon as possible after drug use is suspected, because each drug of abuse is cleared off the body at different times, therefore is detected in the urine at different times and rates. Drug levels below the cutoff limit may not be detected. Review package insert for specific drug calibrator level detection limits.

Processing and Shipping

Specimen Processing:Do not centrifuge. Store in refrigerator.
Shipping Instructions:Ship refrigerated to arrive within 7 days of specimen collection.
Stability:If test needs to be delayed, specimen can be stored for no more than 2 hours at room temperature, or 4 hours at refrigerated temperatures (2-8°C).
Note: Stored urine must be brought to ambient temperature (18-25°C/64-77°F). and mixed well to ensure a homogenous sample prior to testing. Urine specimens exhibiting visible precipitates should be allowed to settle to obtain a clear specimen for testing.

Use:The UCP Drug Test Cup provides only a preliminary analytical test result to assess the possible consumption of specific drugs of abuse. This test is not intended to be used in monitoring the drug levels. A more specific alternate method must be used in order to confirm the test result. Gas chromatography/ Mass spectrometry (GC/MS) is the preferred confirmatory method. Clinical considerations and professional judgement should be applied to any drug of abuse test results, particularly when preliminary positive results are obtained.
Qualitative and quantitative confirmatory test is optional and is ordered separately by physician. Licensed psychotherapist will send specimen to the lab for retest.
Note: Unconfirmed results are to be used only for medical (i.e., treatment) purposes. Unconfirmed screening results must not be used for non-medical purposes (e.g., employment testing, legal testing).
