The dipstrip is a simple and a quick way for detection of THC in urine. The dipstrip utilizes the specific immunochemical reactions between antigens and antibodies, which are used for the analysis of particular matters in biological fluids. The cutoff of the test is 50 ng/ml of THC and matches recommended test cutoff by Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
It's very reliable, fast and inexpensive. Results are obtained in 3 to 5 minutes at the comfort of your home.
As the test kit begins to work, a color band will appear at the left section of the result window to show that the test is working properly. This band is the Control Band.
Note: Due to the chemical nature of the THC, the color of the Test band is much fainter comparing to the color of the Test band of other drugs of abuse tests. Therefore, it is best to read a test under sufficient amount of lighting.
The right section of the result window indicates the test results. If another color band appears at the right section of the result window, this band is the Test Band.
NEGATIVE: TWO COLOR BANDS
The appearance of two color bands within the result window indicates a negative test result. No THC above the cut-off level has been detected. The color of the Test band may be lighter or darker than that of the Control Band.
POSITIVE: ONE COLOR BAND
The appearance of only one color band within the result window indicates the result is positive, i.e. the specimen contains THC at a concentration above the cut-off level.
A distinct color band should always appear in the left section of the result window. The test is invalid if no color band forms in the left section of the result window.
