One Step Rapid Test
A rapid, one step screening test for the semi-quantitative detection of Alcohol in breast milk CE certified
The Breast milk Alcohol Rapid Test Panel is a rapid, highly sensitive method to detect the presence of alcohol in breast milk and provide an approximation of relative alcohol concentration.
This test provides a preliminary screen only. A more specific alternate chemical method must be used in order to obtain a confirmed analytical result. Clinical consideration and professional judgment should be applied to any test screening result, particularly when preliminary positive screens are indicated.
Two-thirds of all adults drink alcohol.¹ The blood alcohol concentration at which a person becomes impaired is variable dependent upon the individual. Each individual has specific parameters that affect the level of impairment such as size, weight, eating habits and alcohol tolerance. Inappropriate consumption of alcohol can be a contributing factor to many accidents, injuries, and medical conditions.
How to use?
The breast milk Alcohol Rapid Test Panel is to be stored at 2-30°C (36-86°F) in its sealed foil package. Bring the pouch to room temperature before opening it. Remove the test panel from the sealed pouch and use it within one hour.
INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS
Positive: The breast milk Alcohol Rapid Test Panel will produce a color change in the presence of alcohol in breast milk. The color will range from light blue color at 0.01% relative blood alcohol concentration to a dark blue color near 0.30% relative blood alcohol concentration. Color pads are provided within this range to allow an approximation of relative alcohol concentration. The test may produce colors that appear to be between adjacent color pads.
NOTE: The breast milk Alcohol Rapid Test Panel is very sensitive to the presence of alcohol. A blue color that is lighter than the 0.01% color pad should be interpreted as being positive to the presence of alcohol in breast milk but less than 0.01% relative blood alcohol.
Negative: When the breast milk Alcohol Rapid Test Panel shows no color change this should be interpreted as a negative result indicating that alcohol has not been detected.
Invalid: If the color pad has a blue color before applying breast milk sample, do not use the test.
NOTE: A result where the outer edges of the color pad produces a slight color but the majority of the pad remains colorless the test should be repeated to ensure complete saturation of the pad with breast milk. The test is not reusable.
