Cat.No.: ALC 712
The Urine Alcohol Test Strip is a rapid, highly sensitive method to detect the presence of alcohol in human urine. This test provides a preliminary result only. A more specific alternate chemical method must be used in order to obtain a confirmed analytical result. Gas chromatography (GC) is the preferred confirmatory method. Clinical consideration and professional judgment should be applied to any result, particularly when preliminary positive results are indicated.
SUMMARY AND EXPLANATION:
The Urine Alcohol Test Strip is a chemical assay based on an alcohol-sensitive enzymatic reaction. Alcohol, if present in the specimen, reacts with chemicals on the reaction pad and causes a color change. The Urine Alcohol Test Strip consists of a plastic strip with a reaction pad attached at the tip. The reaction pad employs a solid-phase chemistry system which uses a highly specific enzyme reaction. On contact with specimens of alcohol, the reaction pad will rapidly change colors depending on the concentration of alcohol present. This color change is proportional to
the concentration of alcohol in the specimen. By comparing with the color blocks on the color chart printed on the pouch, an approximate alcohol concentration can be determined.
