When sample drug levels are at or above the target cutoff, the free drug in the sample binds to the antibody-dye conjugate preventing the antibody-dye conjugate from binding to the drug-protein conjugate immobilized in the Test Region (T) of the device. This prevents the development of a distinct colored band in the test region, One Step Marijuana/Cannabinoids

Urine specimens may be refrigerated acid with a half-life of 24 hours. It can be detected for 1 to 5 days after use. (2ºC~8°C) and stored up to forty-eight hours. For longer storage, freeze the Smoking is the primary method of use of marijuana/cannabis. Higher doses used by abusers produce central nervous system effects, altered mood and sensory Bring frozen or refrigerated samples to room temperature before testing. Use only perceptions, loss of coordination, impaired short-term memory, anxiety, paranoia, depression, confusion, hallucinations and increased heart rate.

Positive and negative control should give the expected results. When testing the Take the strip out after at least 3 seconds and lay the strip flat on a clean, One Step THC Urine Test is a competitive immunoassay that is used to screen for positive and negative control, the same assay procedure should be adopted. dry, non-absorbent surface (such as the mouth of the urine container). the presence of Marijuana/Cannabinoids in urine.

The IMPORTANT Do not allow the urine level to exceed the MAX (marker line), When the absorbent end of the test device is immersed into the urine sample, the performance of this test using other specimens has not been otherwise the test will not perform correctly. urine is absorbed into the device by capillary action, mixes with the antibody-dye conjugate, and flows across the pre-coated membrane. When sample drug levels Adulterated urine samples may produce erroneous results. Strong are zero or below the target cut off (the detection sensitivity of the test), oxidizing agents such as bleach (hypochlorite) can oxidize drug analytes.

C. Interfering substances
Considering the complexity of clinical urine specimens and the possibility that various urine specimens contain potentially interfering substances, for example Acetoacetic Aci, Acetone, Albumin etc., we simulated above situations by adding the potentially interfering substances to a certain concentration as specimen. The following components show no cross-reactivity when tested with One Step THC Urine Test at a concentration of 100 μg/ml.
