The iCup Drug Test 8 panel with a built-in adulterant check is the simplest, self-contained one-step instant drug test with adulteration. It offers a completely closed system for total urine specimen integrity and easy collection and the clear construction gives optimum observation of urine specimens. As a single unit with no dipping or pouring, the results develop quickly within the sealed unit. You may also photocopy the results allowing you to maintain a visual record of the test.
Drug Configuration Including Adulteration Test
Cocaine, Marijuana, Opiates, Amphetamine, Methamphetamine, Phencyclidine, Barbiturate, and Benzodiazepine
(Oxidants, Specific Gravity, pH, Nitrate, Glutaraldehyde, and Creatinine)
While it is the most common method, urine test kits are not fool proof.
A major challenge of urine drug testing is adulteration of the urine specimen. It is an attempt to manipulate the urine specimen with chemical adulterants to produce a false negative or invalid test result. Adulterants can either be purchased on a website as products that are professionally made to take down a drug test. Household chemicals such as bleach or laundry detergent, table salt can also be used.
The Oxidant Strip – checks for the presence of oxidizing agents such as bleach and peroxide added to the specimen to cause and invalid or false negative test result.
The SG Strips – checks for dilution of the urine specimen itself. Specific Gravity is a measure of the density of a substance compared to the density of water. For urine, the specific gravity is a measure of the concentration of dissolved particles in the urine.
The pH Strip – Checks to determine if pH is within the normal human range. When pH is outside the normal human range it will serve to mask the presence of illicit drugs within the urine specimen. High pH levels can even destroy the metabolites of drugs present within the urine making it impossible to detect them.
The NI Strip – Checks for the presence of Nitrate within the urine specimen. Nitrate works by oxidizing carboxy-tetrahydrocannabinol, the major metabolite of marijuana. Nitrate is not a normal substance that is common in human urine. The positive detection of Nitrate should immediately flag that the specimen is not valid, but likely adulterated.
The GL Strip – Checks for the prescense of Glutaraldehyde in the urine sample. Glutaraldehyde may cause false negative screening results by disrupting the enzyme that is often used in many immunoassay instant test devices.
The Creatinine Strip – checks for an abundance of water that could have been drank to dilute the presence of drugs from the body.

With the iCup Drug Test, drug screening results are visible within minutes the indication of one line (positive), two lines (negative), and no line(s) in the control is an invalid result. Since this device is a zero exposure, leak-proof, and tamper-proof system, it remains closed until it is properly disposed of.
To ensure specimen integrity, a temperature strip is located on the back of the testing cup. A quality control device is also built into the test itself and will display a red line in the control region (C) to be considered an internal procedural control. It confirms sufficient specimen volume, adequate membrane wicking, and the correct procedural technique has been done.
