Los Angeles based Diagnostic Automation/Cortez Diagnostics, Inc. offers a 3-panel Drug Test - (AMP) Amphetamine drug test, (MOR) Morphine drug test, and (THC) Marijuana drug test. This multi drug test kit is designed for qualitative determination of drug substances in human urine specimen.
The three panel drug test- (AMP) Amphetamine drug test, (MOR) Morphine drug test, and (THC) Marijuana 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 the Amphetamine, Morphine, or Marijuana 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 amphetamine, morphine or marijuana 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 3-panel drug test -(AMP) Amphetamine drug test, (MOR) Morphine drug test, and (THC) Marijuana 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 3-panel drug test - (AMP) Amphetamine drug test, (MOR) Morphine drug test, and (THC) Marijuana drug testing device is stored in good condition and the 3 panel drug test - (AMP) Amphetamine drug test, (MOR) Morphine drug test, and (THC) Marijuana drug test is performed appropriately.
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.
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 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 three panel drug test kit - (AMP) Amphetamine drug test, (MOR) Morphine drug test, and (THC) Marijuana Drug Test 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. The cutoff level for this 3-panel drug test -(AMP) Amphetamine drug test, (MOR) Morphine drug test, and (THC) Marijuana Drug Test is 1000 ng/ml of d-amphetamine, 300 ng/ml of morphine, and 50 ng/ml of 11-nor-D9-THC-9-COOH. .

This 3 panel drug test - (AMP) Amphetamine drug test, (MOR) Morphine drug test, and (THC) Marijuana Drug Test is also available in cassette or strip format.
