The TAP Rapid Test Cassette (Urine) is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the detection of Tapentadol in human urine at a cut-off concentration of 1000 ng/mL. This test will detect other related compounds, please refer to the Analytical Specificity table in this package insert.This assay provides only a qualitative preliminary analytical test result. A more specific alternate chemical method must be used in order to obtain a confirmed analytical result. Gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) is the preferred confirmatory method. Clinical consideration and professional judgment should be applied to any drug of abuse test result, particularly when preliminary positive results are used.
The TAP Rapid Test Cassette (Urine) is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay based on the principle of competitive binding. Drugs which may be present in the urine specimen compete against the drug conjugate for binding sites on the antibody. During testing, a urine specimen migrates upward by capillary action. Tapentadol, if present in the urine specimen below 1000 ng/mL, will not saturate the binding sites of the antibody coated particles in the test. The antibody coated particles will then be captured by immobilized Tapentadol conjugate and a visible colored line will show up in the test line region. The colored line will not form in the test line region if the Tapentadol level exceeds 1000 ng/mL because it will saturate all the binding sites of anti-Tapentadol antibodies. A drug-positive urine specimen will not generate a colored line in the test line region, while a drug-negative urine specimen or a specimen containing a drug concentration less than the cut-off will generate a line in the test line region. To serve as a procedural control, a colored line will always appear at the control line region indicating that proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.
STORAGE AND STABILITY
Store as packaged in the sealed pouch at room temperature or refrigerated (2-30 °C). The test is stable through the expiration date printed on the sealed pouch. The test must remain in the sealed pouch until use.
DO NOT FREEZE. Do not use beyond the expiration date.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Allow the test, urine specimen, and/or controls to reach room temperature (15-30 ºC) prior to testing.
1. Bring the pouch to room temperature before opening it. Remove the test cassette from the sealed pouch and use it within one hour.
2. Place the test cassette on a clean and level surface. Hold the dropper vertically and transfer
3 full drops of urine (approx. 120 μL) to the specimen well (S) of the test cassette, and then start the timer. Avoid trapping air bubbles in the specimen well (S). See the illustration below.
3. Wait for the colored line(s) to appear. Read results at 5 minutes. Do not interpret the result after 10 minutes.
A procedural control is included in the test. A colored line appearing in the control line region (C) is considered an internal procedural control. It confirms sufficient specimen volume, adequate membrane wicking and correct procedural technique. Control standards are not supplied with this kit; however, it is recommended that positive and negative controls be tested as good laboratory testing practice to confirm the test procedure and
to verify proper test performance.
