N, N-Dimethyltryptamine Rapid Test Cassette (Urine), NND Test, 1000 ng/mL, Urine specimen
A rapid test for the qualitative detection of N, N-Dimethyltryptamine in human urine. For professional in vitro diagnostic use only.
The NND Rapid Test Cassette (Urine) is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the detection of N, N-Dimethyltryptamine in 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.
N, N-Dimethyltryptamine is a powerful and illegal hallucinogenic drug. While there is an open debate on whether or not N, N-Dimethyltryptamine is addictive, this drug poses dangerous physical and psychological effects for frequent users. Additionally, individuals who frequently abuse N, N-Dimethyltryptamine often develop a dependence on the drug, proving the dangers of N, N-Dimethyltryptamine abuse.
N, N-Dimethyltryptamine produces a high referred to as a psychedelic trip. When smoked, a N, N-Dimethyltryptamine trip usually begins instantly and lasts less than an hour.2 However, when drunk in the form of Ayahuasca tea, hallucinations begin after about 30 minutes and may last from 4-6 hours. Some users report experiencing mild, lingering hallucinogenic effects for several days after consuming or smoking N, N-Dimethyltryptamine. On a physiological level, N, N-Dimethyltryptamine causes an array of adverse side effects.
The NND Rapid Test Cassette (Urine) is a rapid urine-screening test that can be performed without the use of an instrument. The test utilizes the antibody to selectively detect elevated levels of N, N-Dimethyltryptamine in urine. The NND Rapid Test Cassette (Urine) yields a positive result when the N, N-Dimethyltryptamine in urine exceed the cut-off level.
The NND Rapid Test Cassette (Urine) is an 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. N, N-Dimethyltryptamine, if present in the urine specimen below the cut-off level, will not saturate the binding sites of the antibody in the test. The antibody coated particles will then be captured by immobilized N, N-Dimethyltryptamine-protein 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 N, N-Dimethyltryptamine level exceeds the cut-off level, because it will saturate all the binding sites of anti-N, N-Dimethyltryptamine antibody.
A drug-positive urine specimen will not generate a colored line in the test line region because of drug competition, 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.
The test contains mouse monoclonal anti-N, N-Dimethyltryptamine antibody coupled particles and N, N-Dimethyltryptamine-protein conjugate. A goat antibody is employed in the control line system.
• For professional in vitro diagnostic use only.
• Do not use after the expiration date.
• The test should remain in the sealed pouch until use.
• All specimens should be considered potentially hazardous and handled in the same manner as an infectious agent.
• The used test should be discarded according to local regulations.
STORAGE AND STABILITY
Store as packaged in the sealed pouch either 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 °C) prior to testing.
1. the pouch to room temperature before opening it. Remove the test cassette from the se Bring aled pouch and use it within one hour
2. Place the 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 cassette, and then start the timer. Avoid trapping air bubbles in the specimen well(S).
3. Wait for the colored line(s) to appear. Read results at 5 minutes. Do not interpret the
result after 10 minutes.
INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS
(Please refer to the illustration above)
NEGATIVE: Two colored lines appear. One colored line should be in the control line region (C), and another colored line should be in the test line region (T). This negative result indicates that the N, N-Dimethyltryptamine concentration is below the detectable cut-off level.
NOTE: The shade of color in the test line region (T) may vary, but it should be considered negative whenever there is even a faint colored line.
POSITIVE: One colored line appears in the control line region (C). No line appears in the test line region (T). This positive result indicates that the N, N-Dimethyltryptamine concentration exceeds the detectable cut-off level.
INVALID: Control line fails to appear. Insufficient specimen volume or incorrect procedural techniques are the most likely reasons for control line failure. Review the procedure and repeat the test with a new test. If the problem persists, discontinue using the test kit immediately and contact local distributor.
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.
