5 Panel Drug Test Dip

5 Panel Drug Test

This is a dip strip drug test that detects 5 different drugs at one time, a 5 panel drug test (5 drug assay). We also offer a wide range of multi panel drug tests that will test from 2 to 12 drugs.

Marijuana THC Drug Test Dip

Marijuana Drug Test - THC Testing

This is a dip strip drug test that detects one drug at a time, a single panel drug test (1 drug assay). Here, we show a cannabis drug test to test for marijuana (THC drug testing).

OrAlert - Oral Saliva Drug Test

OrAlert - Oral Saliva Drug Test

Above is a mouth swab drug test, sometimes referred to as the "Spit Drug Test". The OrAlert drug test detects 6 different drugs at one time (6 drug assay).

Drug Test Glossary

 
Note: Definitions are expressed in terms applicable to the subjects of drug testing and pharmacology. Some terms may possess inherently different meanings when applied to other fields of study.
 Accuracy: The ability of a test device to produce a reading that matches the known value for the sample.
 Amnestic: An agent used for the treatment of impaired memory function.
 Analgesic: An agent that relieves pain selectively without affecting consciousness or sensory perception.
 Anesthetic (General): An agent that produces unconsciousness as well as diminishing or eliminating the sensation of pain.
 Anesthetic (Local): An agent that diminishes or eliminates the sensation of pain on or in the specific region of the body where it is applied.
 Antihyperbilirubinemic: An agent used for the treatment of antihyperbilirubinemia (jaundice) - a common disorder in newborns wherein the chemical "bilirubin" accumulates in the infant's blood and causes a yellow hue.
 Antitussive: An agent that suppresses coughing.
 Anxiolytic: A mild sedative used for relief of anxiety.
 Cannabinoid: Any of the active principles of Cannabis Sativa (marijuana), including, but not limited to, THC.
 Central Nervous System (CNS): Body system comprised of the brain and spinal cord.
 Central Nervous System (CNS) Depressant: An agent that diminishes brain and/or spinal cord function or activity.
 Central Nervous System (CNS) Stimulant: An agent that amplifies brain and/or spinal cord function or activity.
 Cross-reactivity: The degree in which substances other than the target compound are shown to generate positive test results.
 Cutoff Concentration: The specific concentration of drug or drug metabolite in the sample that is chosen as a limit to distinguish a positive from a negative test result. Samples with concentrations above the cutoff level are considered positive and results below are considered negative.
 Depressant: An agent that diminishes a body function or activity.
 False Negative Test Result: A test result which states that no drug is present when, in fact, a tested drug or metabolite is present in an amount greater the cutoff concentration.
 False Positive Test Result: A test result which states that a drug or metabolite is present when, in fact, the drug or metabolite is not present or is present in an amount less than the cutoff concentration.
 Hallucinogen: An agent that distorts sensory perceptions, sometimes resulting in sensory illusions which may be mild or extreme.
 Hypnotic:An agent that induces sleep.
 Interference: The effect that a compound (or group of compounds) has on the accuracy of test measurement.
 Metabolite: A modified form or byproduct of a drug produced by the body's metabolic process.
 Narcotic (Narcotic-Analgesic): An agent that relieves pain through depression of the central nervous system.
 Negative Test Result: A test result which states that no drug or metabolite is present or no drug or metabolite is present in an amount greater the cutoff concentration.
 Positive Test Result: A test result which states that a drug or metabolite is present.
 Precision: The ability of a test device to produce the same value during repeated measurements.
 Quantitative Test Result: A test result expressed in numerical terms in order to determine the specific quantity of drug or drug metabolite present in the sample.
 Qualitative Test Result: A test result expressed in non-numerical terms in order to determine the presence or absence of drug or drug metabolite in the sample.
 Reproducibility: The ability of a test device to produce the same value during repeated measurements in various laboratories which are participating in a collaborative study.
 Sedative: An agent that calms nervousness, irritability, and excitement. In general, sedatives depress the central nervous system and tend to cause sluggishness and reduced mental activity.
 Sedative-Hypnotic: An agent that calms nervousness, irritability, and excitement and/or induces sleep. In general, sedative-hypnotics depress the central nervous system and tend to cause sluggishness and reduced mental activity.
 Sensitivity: For quantitative test devices: The smallest concentration of a drug or drug metabolite that produces a response distinguishable from the background or blank value. For qualitative test devices: The minimum concentration of a drug or drug metabolite that is capable of generating a positive test result. In qualitative test devices, this amount is generally the same as the cutoff concentration.
 Specificity: The ability of a test device to determine exclusively the drug and/or drug metabolites that are claimed to be detected without cross-reacting with other related substances that are not intended to be detected.
 Stimulant: An agent that amplifies a body function or activity.
 Target Drug/Metabolite: The drug or metabolite that the test device is designed to detect.
 Tranquilizer: An agent used for relief of anxiety.
