MET Test Strips
Classified by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration as a Schedule II stimulant, Methamphetampnie (also known as ice, meth, blue, and crystal), is a highly addictive, powerful substance that can affect the central nervous system.
It has a half-life of 9-24 hours in the body and its effects generally last anywhere from two to four hours. Although it is excreted in the urine as Amphetamine, 10-20% of this drug is excreted unchanged. This makes it detectable by MET test strips.
Ovus Medical’s MET Test Strip is a drug testing technique that uses the principle of competitive binding to detect the presence of a substance (in this case, Methamphetamine) in urine specimens.
- Open the sealed pouch or canister containing the MET test strip. Get one and use the strip immediately, ideally within an hour. The pouch or canister containing the remaining MET test strips should be closed tightly to prevent contamination.
- Hold the MET strip at its end, where the product’s name is printed. Be careful not to touch the strip membrane to avoid contamination.
- Dip the strip, arrows down, into the urine specimen for not more than 15 seconds. Do not allow the urine to pass beyond the area where the word “MAX” is written.
- Once done, remove the strip from the specimen then place it on a dry, flat surface. Set the timer to five minutes. This is enough for the colored band/bands to appear. Do not read the result after 10 minutes as this can lead to an inaccurate result.
Only one colored band appears, in the control region. No apparent colored band appears in the test region (T).
Two colored bands appear on the membrane. One brand appears in the control regions © and another band appears in the test region (T).
Control band fails to appear. Results from any test which has not produced a control band at the specified read time must be discarded. Please review the procedure and repeat with a new test. If the problems persist, discontinue using the kit immediately and contact your local distributor.
