AMP Rapid Test kit Background Information
Amphetamines are a class of potent sympathominetic agents with therapeutic applications. The most common amphetamine drugs are d-amphetamine and d,l-amphetamine. Amphetamines are central nervous stimulants that cause the neutrotrransmitters epinephrine, norepinephrine and dopamine to be released into the brain and body giving users feelings of euphoria, alertness, and increased energy. Chronic abuse of amphetamine drugs leads to tolerance and drug reinforcement effect. Cardiovascular responses to amphetamine drugs include increased blood pressure and cardiac arrhythmias. More acute responses to amphetamine drugs produce anxiety, paranoia, hallucinations and psychotic behavior. Amphetamine drugs are metabolized by a number of pathways. In general, acid urine promotes excretion whereas alkaline urine retards it. In 24 hours, approximately 79% of the amphetamine drug dose is excreted in acid urine and about 45% in alkaline urine. Typically, about 20% of the amphetamine drug is excreted as unchanged amphetamine. Unchanged amphetamine can be detected up to 1-2 days after use.
AMP drug Rapid Test Principle
The Amphetamine Drug Testing device is based on the principle of specific immunochemical reaction between antibodies and antigens to analyze particular compounds in human urine specimen. The assay relies on the competition for binding antibody between drug conjugate and free drug which may be present in the urine specimen being tested. When an Amphetamine drug is present in the urine specimen, it competes with drug conjugate for the limited amount of antibody-dye conjugate. When the amount of an Amphetamine drug is equal or more than the cut-off, it will prevent the binding of drug conjugate to the antibody. Therefore, a positive urine specimen on the Amphetamine Drug Test will not show a colored band on the test line zone, indicating a positive result, while the presence of a colored band indicates a negative result. A control line is present in the test window to work as procedural control. This colored band should always appear on the control line zone if the Amphetamine drug testing device is stored in good condition and the Amphetamine drug test is performed appropriately. See product insert for more details and additional information.
