ISO13485 1000ng/ml Tricyclic Antidepressant Panel Powder Drug Abuse Test Kit Wiht No Cross Reactivity
The Tricyclic Antidepressants Rapid Test Panel is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of Tricyclic Antidepressants a cut-off 1000ng/ml. This assay provides only a 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 indicated.
TCA (Tricyclic Antidepressants) are commonly used for the treatment of depressive disorders. TCA overdoses can result in profound CNS depression, cardiotoxicity and anticholinergic effects. TCA overdose is the most common cause of death from prescription drugs. TCAs are taken orally or sometimes by injection. TCAs are metabolized in the liverThe Propoxyphene contained within the TCA Rapid Test Panel yields a positive result when the TCA concentration exceeds 1000ng/ml.

INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS
(Please refer to the illustration above)
NEGATIVE:* A colored line appears in the Control region (C) and colored lines appear in the Test region (T). This negative result means that the concentrations in the sample are below the designated cut-off levels for a particular drug tested.
*NOTE: The shade of the colored lines(s) in the Test region (T) may vary. The result should be considered negative whenever there is even a faint line.
POSITIVE: A colored line appears in the Control region (C) and NO line appears in the Test region (T). The positive result means that the drug concentration in the sample is greater than the designated cut-off for a specific drug.
INVALID: No line appears in the Control region (C). Insufficient specimen volume or incorrect procedural techniques are the most likely reasons for Control line failure. Read the directions again and repeat the test with a new test card. If the result is still invalid, contact your manufacturer.
