A rapid test for the qualitative detection of Opiates (OPI) in human Oral Fluid that can be performed with the use of AllTestTM LF Reader. For medical and other professional in vitro diagnostic use only.
The OPI Rapid Test Cassette (Oral Fluid) is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the detection of Morphine in human Oral Fluid that can be performed with the use of AllTestTM LF Reader at the cut-off concentration of 40ng/mL. This test will detect other related compounds, please refer to the Analytical Specificity table in this package insert.
This assay provides only a qualitative, preliminary, analytical test result. A more specific alternate chemical method must be used in order to obtain a confirmed analytical result. Gas chromatography/ mass spectrometry (GC/MS) is the preferred confirmatory method. Clinical consideration and professional judgment should be applied to any drug of abuse test result, particularly when preliminary positive results are used.
The drug class opiates refers to any drug that is derived from the opium poppy, including naturally occurring compounds such as morphine and codeine and semi-synthetic drugs such as heroin. Opiates act to control pain by depressing the central nervous system. The drugs demonstrate addictive properties when used for sustained periods of time; symptoms of withdrawal may include sweating, shaking, nausea and irritability. Opiates can be taken orally or by injection routes including intravenous, intramuscular and subcutaneous; illegal users may also take the intravenously or by nasal inhalation. Using an immunoassay cutoff level of 40 ng/ml, codeine can be detected in the oral fluid within 1 hour following a single oral dose and can remain detectable for 7-21 hours after the dose2. Heroin metabolite 6-monoacetylmorphine (6-MAM) is found more prevalently in excreted unmetabolized, and is also the major metabolic product of codeine and heroin1.
