Features and benefits.
- Flood proof drop-in design means that you can submerse UScreen assay’s into urine without fear of an incorrect result or cross contamination.
- Specimen validity test. (USSDipA-5M)
- Results in minutes. Negative results within one minute. Non-Negative results are visible in only five minutes. Results are easy to read and can be photocopied.
- FDA 510(k) cleared.
Fewer positive results from common medications: Below is the Top 10 list of medications that won’t cause false-positive results on UScreen test kits.
- Zantac (ranitidine): Neither this over-the counter drug nor urine specimens from donors taking this drug will produce false positive for methamphetamine (MET). Be wary of products that list ranitidine on their “non-reactive” list. It’s quite possible that the urinary metabolite of ranitidine will indeed cause false-positive results.
- Sustiva (efavirenz): Neither this prescription drug nor urine specimens from donors taking this drug will produce false positive results for marijuana (THC). As with ranitidine, watch out for products that list Sustiva or efavirenz on their non-reactive list. Most likely, they’ve only done testing of the parent drug itself instead of testing urine specimens of actual patients taking Sustiva.
- Prilosec (omeprazole): Another medication that will not produce false positive results for marijuana (THC), even in donor urine.
- Protonix (pantoprazole): This prescription-based medication or urine specimens from donors taking Protonix will not produce false positive results for marijuana (THC) .
- Prevacid (lansoprazole): Another member of the proton-pump inhibitor drug class that will not produce false positive results for marijuana (THC).
- Nexium (esomeprazole): This anti-ulcer medication similar to Prilosec will not produce false positive results for marijuana (THC).
- Phenergan (promethazine): Neither this prescription drug nor urine specimens from donors taking this drug will produce a false positive for amphetamine (AMP) or methamphetamine (MET).
- Zoloft (sertraline): This newer antidepressant drug will not produce false positive results for Benzodiazepines (BZO).
- Sudafed PE (phenylephrine): This is the new formulation of Sudafed that has taken the place of pseudoephedrine-based.
- Adipex (phentermine): The prescription-based diet pill yields false-positive test on most Amphetamine (AMP) assays.
Directions for use.
The urine specimen must be collected in a clean and dry specimen container.
- Remove the drug test kit from the foil pouch.
- Remove the cap from the 5 panel drug test kit UScreen test device. Label the device with patient or control identifications.
- Ask the donor to provide an adequate specimen into the container.
- Read the temperature immediately, it should be 93 to 98ºF. This is considered the acceptable temperature range. If not, start the test again with a new test kit and ask the donor to provide a new sample.
- Immerse the absorbent tip into the urine sample for a minimum of twenty seconds. Urine sample should not touch the plastic device.
- Replace the cap over the absorbent tip and lay the device flatly on a non-absorptive clean surface.
- Read results at five minutes.
- Do not interpret the result after ten minutes.
The use of gloves is recommended to avoid unnecessary contact with the specimen.
Specimen temperature test. This is possibly one of the most important aspects of drug testing. A urine specimen that has a temperature out of range is generally an indication that the specimen is invalid. We recommend that the urine sample temperature is checked within one minute from the time of collection. The temperature range should be from 93° to 98°F . If the specimen is not within range, ask the donor to provide a new specimen. Always use a specimen cup with a temperature strip to measure urine temperature.
Interpreting the result.
UScreen drug test.
- Negative: Two lines appear. One color line should be in the control region (C), and another apparent color line adjacent should be in the test region (T). This negative result indicates that the drug concentration is below the detectable level.
NOTE: The shade of color in the test line region (T) will vary, but it should be considered negative whenever there is even a faint distinguishable color line.
- Positive: One color line appears in the control region (C). No line appears in the test region (T). This positive result indicates that the drug concentration is above the detectable level.
- Invalid: Control line fails to appear. Insufficient specimen volume or incorrect procedural.
The specimen validity test. (For dip cards with specimen validity test.) This is based on the color response of chemical indicators testing for the presence of adulterants: Creatinine (Cr), bleach/oxidant (Bl), and specific gravity (S.G.). This will determine the integrity of the urine sample. Compare specimen validity test pads with the color chart. Note: If pad colors are outside normal range, open a second test, collect a new specimen, and retest.
- Cr level: Creatinine reacts with a creatinine indicator in an alkaline medium which forms a purplish-brown color complex. The color intensity is directly proportional to the concentration of creatinine. Urine samples with creatinine concentrations of less than 20 mg/ml are dilute, which may be indicative of adulteration.
- Bl level: Tests for the presence of oxidants, such as bleach, hydrogen peroxide and Pyridinium Chlorochromate, in the urine. Observation of a blue-green, brown, or orange color indicates adulteration with bleach or other oxidizing agents.
- S.G. level: Tests for sample dilution. Normal levels for specific gravity will range from 1.005-1.025. Specific gravity levels of less than 1.003 or higher than 1.030 is an indication of adulteration. The color changes from dark blue to blue-green in urine of low ionic concentration to green and yellow-green in urine of higher ionic concentration. Urine specific gravity below 1.005 or above 1.025 is considered abnormal, which may indicate adulteration.

A drug test is only a preliminary screen and all positive screens should be confirmed using a more definitive form of testing such as GC/MS (Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry). Lab confirmation is available upon request. Full instructions are included in each pack, but you can also download a copy by clicking the red button below.
