Product Overview

The U-Tox is a preliminary screening test for the presence of drugs. The U-Tox is a qualitative, immunoassay urine-based rapid test that incorporates collection of a urine specimen and the testing of multiple drugs simultaneously. For a quantitative result or to confirm a presumptive positive screen, a second, alternative chemical method should be performed on the same urine sample. Liquid Chromatography/Tandem Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) or Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) are the preferred confirmation methods.

Storing And Packaging

  • Store tests at room temperature
  • Begin by checking the foil pouch to ensure that it has not been compromised and the lot number and expiration date are valid.
  • Do not use past the expiration date
    (Example: 2018-6 = Valid through June 30, 2018)
  • Minimum order is one case (25 devices)

Collecting The Sample

  • Tear open the pouch and remove cup and lid.

  • Request the donor to void into the cup.

  • Once the sample has been collected, replace lid and tighten firmly to ensure urine will not leak.

  • Place the device on a flat surface while the test is running and the results are read.

Temperature Strip Validation

  • Prior to reading the test results, turn the U-Tox around to the back and read the temperature strip to make sure the specimen is within normal range.

  • The temp should be within 90-100°F. (Indicated by the green dot)

Result Interpretation

Some of the U-Tox test strips will contain two drugs. Strips with two drugs will be arranged on the left side of the cup, followed by individual drug test strips, then EtG and SVT (if included). The control Line (C) is the uppermost line appearing on each strip. Before reading the test result Lines, verify that all control Lines have formed. Otherwise, the test is Invalid and the test results must not be used.

A Negative result is indicated by the presence of a reddish-purple control line and the presence of a corresponding reddish-purple test line.

A Negative result can be read as soon as both the control and test lines have formed. Wait the full 5 minutes before reading a presumptive positive result. Results are stable up to 60 minutes.

A Positive result is indicated by a reddish-purple control line and the absence of the corresponding test line for any particular drug within the testing panel.

The intensity of the test Lines may vary. Any line, without regard to intensity, color or size, indicates a Negative result for that drug.

Multi-Drug Interpretation

The multi-drug strips consist of the top control line and two test regions (labeled T1 and T2 below) representing each of the multi-drugs.

Within This Diagram:
T1 corresponds with: OPI, BZO, OXY test results
T2 corresponds with: AMP, BAR, BUP test results

This diagram shows a positive result for BZO and BUP and a negative result for OPI, AMP, BAR and OXY
