DipScan is a fast and reliable urine drug screen which tests for the most common drugs of abuse at the cut-off levels set out in the Australian and New Zealand Standards.
Features of the DipScan - Drugs of Abuse Urine Test
Drugs tested for include:
DipScan uses a dip test methodology where the test is dipped directly into the urine and provides extremely accurate results within just a few minutes.
DipScan™ 6:The DipScan™ 6 on-site drug test is a dip-style test based on a competitive binding immunoassay in which drug and drug metabolites in a urine sample compete with chemically labeled drug compounds for limited antibody binding sites.
In the assay procedure, urine mixes with labeled antibody-dye conjugate and migrates along a porous membrane. When the concentration of a given drug is below the cut-off value of the test, unbound antibody-dye conjugate binds to antigen conjugate immobilised on the membrane, producing a rose-pink colour band in the appropriate ‘test zone’ for that drug.
When the drug level is at or above the detection limit, free drug competes with the immobilised antigen conjugate on the membrane by binding to antibody-dye conjugate, forming an antigen-antibody complex, preventing the development of a rose-pink colour band.
The device has a control zone where, regardless of the drug level in the sample, a rose-pink band is produced to verify that the reagents are chemically active.
Drugs tested and cut-off concentrations:
Interpretation of Results:An invalid result is indicated when colour bands are not present in each of the control zones (one for each drug strip).
A positive result is indicated by a rose-pink band visible in each control zone and no colour band in one or more test zone.
The absence of the band indicates a positive result for the drug corresponding to that specific test zone.
A negative result is indicated by rose-pink bands visible in each control zone and each test zone (regardless of intensity).
