4-Panel Drug Test (Cassette) (MET, MOR,THC,COC) description:
Los Angeles based Diagnostic Automation/Cortez Diagnostics, Inc. offers a 4 Panel Drug Test for any combination drugs: (MET) Methamphetamine drug test, (MOR) Morphine drug test, (THC) Marijuana drug test, and (COC) Cocaine drug test. This multi drug test kit is designed for qualitative determination of drug substances in human urine specimen.
The four panel- (MET) Methamphetamine drug test, (MOR) Morphine drug test, (THC) Marijuana drug test, and (COC) Cocaine drug test 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 the Methamphetamine (MET), Morphine, (MOR), Marijuana (THC), or Cocaine (COC) drug is present in the urine specimen, it competes with drug conjugate for the limited amount of antibody-dye conjugate. When the amount of the Methamphetamine (MET), Morphine, (MOR), Marijuana (THC), or Cocaine (COC) 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 4 panel drug test - (MET) Methamphetamine drug test, (MOR) Morphine drug test, (THC) Marijuana drug test, and (COC) Cocaine 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 4 panel drug test - (MET) Methamphetamine drug test, (MOR) Morphine drug test, (THC) Marijuana drug test, and (COC) Cocaine drug testing device is stored in good condition and the 4 panel drug test - (MET) Methamphetamine drug test, (MOR) Morphine drug test, (THC) Marijuana drug test, and (COC) Cocaine Drug Test is performed appropriately.
The Methamphetamine drug (MET) is the most popular synthetic derivative of the amphetamines. The methamphetamine drug is a potent sympathomimetic agent with therapeutic applications. Acute large doses of the methamphetamine drug lead to enhanced stimulation of the central nervous system and induce euphoria, alertness, reduced appetite, and a sense of increased energy and power. More acute response to the methamphetamine drug produces anxiety, paranoia, psychotic behavior, and cardiac dysrhythmias. The methamphetamine drug is excreted in the urine as amphetamine and oxized and deaminated derivatives. However, 10-40% of the methamphetamine drug is excreted unchanged. The methamphetamine drug is generally detectable in the urine for 3 to 5 days after use. The cutoff level for this 4 panel methamphetamine drug test is 1000 ng/ml of (+) methamphetamine.
The Morphine drug (MOR) is an opioid analgesic, the principal and most active alkaloid of opium. Opiate Opioid analgesics are comprised of a large group of substances that control pain by depressing the central nervous system. The morphine drug is a powerful narcotic analgesic, and its primary clinical use is in the management of moderately severe to severe pain. After heroin, morphine has the greatest potential for addiction of all narcotic analgesics. Acute high doses of opiates-heroin-morphine drugs used by abusers or addicts can cause depressed coordination, disrupted decision, decreased respiration, hypothermia and coma. The morphine drug is excreted unmetabolized and is the marker metabolic product of opiate drugs. The morphine drug and the drug morphine glucuronide are detectable in urine for several days after opiate drug dose. The cutoff level for this 4 panel morphine drug test is 300 ng/ml of morphine.
The agents of the Marijuana Drug(THC) that cause various biological effects in humans are called cannabinoid. Cannabinoid is a central nervous stimulant that alters mood and sensory perceptions, produces loss of coordination, impairs short term memory, and produces symptoms of anxiety, paranoia, depression, confusion, hallucination, and increased heart rate. Large doses of cannabinoid could cause the development of tolerances and physiological dependency and lead to abuse. A tolerance to the cardiac and psychotropic effects of the marijuana drug can occur and withdrawal syndrome produces restlessness, insomnia, anorexia and nausea. ␣9-THC is the primary active ingredient in cannabinoids. The main metabolite excreted in the urine is 11-nor-␣9-THC-9-COOH, which are found within hours of exposure and remain detectable in the urine for 3-10 days after smoking. The cutoff level for this 4 panel marijuana drug test is 50 ng/ml of 11-nor-D9-THC-9-COOH.
Cocaine (COC) is derived from the leaves of the cocoa plant. The cocaine drug is a potent central nervous system stimulant as well as a local anesthetic. Some of the psychological effects induced by the cocaine drug are: euphoria, confidence and a sense of increased energy, accompanied by increased heart rate, dilation of the pupils, fever, tremors and sweating. Continued ingestion of the cocaine drug could induce tolerances and physiological dependency which leads to its abuse. The cocaine drug is used by smoking, intravenous, intransal or oral administration and excreted in the urine primarily as benzoylecgonine in a short period. Benzoylecgonine has a biological half-life of 5 – 8 hours, which is much longer than that of the cocaine drug ( 0.5 – 1.5 hours), and can be generally detected for 12 – 72 hours after cocaine drug use or exposure. The cutoff level for this 4 panel cocaine drug test is 300 ng/ml of benzoylecgonine.
The four panel drug test kit-provides only a preliminary analytical test result. A more specific alternative chemical method must be used in order to obtain a confirmed analytical result. Gas chromatography/ mass spectrometry (GC/MS) has been established as the preferred confirmatory method by the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Clinical consideration and professional judgment should be applied to any drug of abuse test result, particularly when preliminary positive results are indicated.
The optional built-in Adulteration Test is for validation of urine specimen’s integrity and must not be used for In Vitro diagnostic use.

This 4 panel drug test - (MET) Methamphetamine drug test, (MOR) Morphine drug test, (THC) Marijuana drug test, and (COC) Cocaine Drug Test is available in cassette, strip, or cup format.
