Urine Drug testing technology
Urine drug testing is a procedure done to ensure that an individual is not or has not taken illegal and or dangerous substances. Urine drug testing is a form of drug testing amongst many others like blood drug testing, saliva drug testing, and hair drug testing. There are many ways to test an individual for an illegal substance and urine drug testing is one of the most common ways.
Urine Drug Testing, also known as urinalysis, is a procedure in which an individual submits a urine sample. From here, there are two different procedures depending on the type of urine drug testing method being used. Since urine drug testing has become such a common form of drug testing, and the war on drugs is still in full force, urine drug testing is now available to be done in the privacy of home, with no doctors or lab technicians. This is the first kind of urine drug testing kit, the home detection kit.
To use a home urine drug testing kit, locate a brand and make that you would feel comfortable using. When deciding which brand to use, remember there are many choices that look similar, but be sure to check what the results will be, and what the drug urine testing kit is able to pick up. Most drug urine tests cover a bunch of illegal drugs and will detect whatever it is that someone is testing the sample for.
This is a list of the most common drugs found when using urine drug testing; carboxylic acid (THC/Marijuana), cocaine and its metabolite, Benzoylecgonine, PCP (Phencyclidine), Morphine and the related metabolites derived from Opium (opiates), Methamphetamines (including Ecstasy), Methadone, PCP (Angel Dust, Amphetamines, Barbiturates, TCA (Tricyclic Antidepressant) and Benzodiazepines.
Lab urine drug testing is done much the same as home urine drug testing, however rather than waiting for a chemical reaction on a strip, it is being examined by a laboratory technician.
