The Ketamine Drug Test, or The Cortez Diagnostics, Inc. DOA (Drug of Abuse) test, is an immunochromatography based one step in vitro test. The Ketamine drug test is designed for qualitative determination of ketamine drug substances in human urine specimen. This assay has not been evaluated in the point of care location and is for use by Healthcare Professionals only.
Ketamine is a derivative of phencyclidine. The ketamine drug is used medically as a veterinary and human anesthetic. Certain doses of the ketamine drug can cause dream-like states and hallucinations. In high doses, the ketamine drug can cause delirium, amnesia, impaired motor function, high blood pressure, depression, and potentially fatal respiratory problems. The ketamine drug is metabolized in the liver and excreted through the kidney. The half-life of the ketamine drug in the body is around three hours.
The Ketamine 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 bringing antibody between drug conjugate and free drug which may be present in the urine specimen being tested. When the Ketamine 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 Ketamine drug is equal or more than the cutoff, it will prevent the binding of drug conjugate to the antibody. Therefore, a positive urine specimen on the Ketamine Drug Test will not show a colored band on the test 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 Ketamine drug testing device is stored in good condition and the Ketamine drug test is performed appropriately.
This Ketamine 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 Ketamine Drug Test is 1000 ng/ml of Ketamine. For customized cutoff level Ketamine drug tests, please contact Customer Service. This Ketamine Drug Test is available in multi-panel, cassette, strip, or cup format.
