8 Panel Cup
For industries, organizations, and governments that require more extensive drug and metabolite testing capabilities, the 8 panel drug test is a multi drug screen test that simultaneously and qualitatively detects up to eight compounds at once. Designed ergonomically to minimize mess and prevent leaks, and with an easy-to-read results pane, the 8 panel drug test is accurate enough for workplace drug testing but comfortable enough for at-home use.
A rapid results drug test that is as effective as those performed in a clinical setting, 8 panel tests detect the presence of up to eight drugs and metabolites. Immunoassay technology determines whether drugs and metabolites are above SAMHSA levels within minutes, and the medical grade testing cups analyze human urine specimens within a 99% accuracy rate.
12 Panel Medical 8 panel drug test includes a temperature gauge to help operators confirm the validity of the sample. Extending the requirements of FDA approval, 8 panel testing cups are also equipped with adulterants to ensure the authenticity of the results and prevent the occurrence of false-negatives.
While the SAMHSA standard for urine drug tests is a 5 panel cup, rehabilitation facilities, medical centers, governments, and workplaces often require more extensive testing resources for detecting both parent drugs and their metabolites. An 8 panel drug test is an FDA-approved and CLIA-waived multi screen drug test for testing:
12 Panel Medical produces medical grade testing cups in compliance with industry specifications and guidelines and are suitable for use in laboratories, rehabilitation centers, and professional medical settings as well as in the workplace and home.
Whether for clinical, work, or home use, the 8 panel drug test includes the option to configure compliancy figures to even stricter standards and come equipped with failsafe’s to prevent fraudulent results. Each urine drug test contains a precise and comprehensive set of instructions for situations that require adjustments and alternative settings.
SAMHSA cutoff concentrations refer to the pre-determined limit for a parent drug or metabolite found in a human urine specimen. Although SAMHSA cutoff concentrations are intended as a guideline for federal employees, their limits are set based on research conducted by leaders in the field of toxicology. As such, compliancy with SAMHSA cutoff concentrations is the industry-standard for immunoassay multi drug screen tests.
The 8 panel drug test cutoff levels determine what qualifies as a positive result. When a urine specimen exceeds the cutoffs for one or more of the drugs and metabolites being tested for, the test is marked as positive. 8 panel drug test cutoff levels are expressed as nanograms per milliliter (ng/ml) and are set as follows:
- Amphetamines 1000 ng/ml
- Benzodiazepines 300 ng/ml
- Buprenorphine 10 ng/ml
- Cocaine 300 ng/ml
- THC 50 ng/ml
- Opiates 2000 ng/ml
- Morphine 300 ng/ml
- Oxycodone 100 ng/ml
- Methamphetamine 1000 ng/ml
To dissuade the donor from attempting to alter the drug test via concentration levels, 8 panel rapid drug tests are equipped with a number of failsafe’s. The testing cups are exceptionally sensitive to variations in the SAMHSA cutoff levels. You may even adjust the cutoff levels in order to test for appropriate pain management versus painkiller abuse levels. Adulteration testing kits and a temperature indicator also alert operators to potentially fraudulent specimens within minutes of collection.
Extended exposure to light and air may affect the reliability of results. The testing cup should be removed from packaging immediately before testing. The seals can also be removed at this time.
Before providing the specimen, the donor should initial and date the body label of the testing cup. After providing the sample, the operator checks that the cup is tightly sealed and begins a timer. Between two and four minutes, the operator should ensure that the green temperature indicator is between 90 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Five minutes after receiving the sample, the results of the 8 panel rapid drug test can be read by the operator.
Operators must ensure that there is at least 15 ml of urine collected for proper analysis. Should the specimen be sent to the laboratory; most laboratories require at least 30 ml of urine. The operator is also responsible for ensuring that the temperature of the 8 panel drug test cup is between 59-78 degrees F before administering the test.
Operators should also ensure that handling and disposal of human urine specimens comply with health and safety standards applicable to their industry. Human urine has the potential to be infectious and should be handled with professional care, especially during at-home testing.
To determine whether the urine specimen exceeds the cutoff concentrations of the 8 drugs and metabolites tested, the operator consults the results indicator. Rapid results drugs tests are intended to provide quick and qualitative results. However, they cannot be relied upon if left to sit for longer than eight minutes.
If the specimen exceeds the cutoff concentrations rates for one or more of the drugs and metabolites tested, no colored band forms in the result area of the testing cup. Positive results must be sent to a toxicology laboratory for confirmation.
In the case the specimen does not exceed the cutoff concentrations rates for one or more of the drugs and metabolites tested, a colored band forms in the result area of the testing cup.
