The MTD One Step Methadone Test Strip is a lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay for the detection of Methadone in urine at a cut-off concentration of 300 ng/mL. This test will detect other opiates. Please refer to analytical specificity table in this package insert.
Methadone is a narcotic pain reliever for medium to severe pain. It is also used in the treatment of heroin (opiate dependence: Vicodin, Percocet, Morphine, etc.) addiction. Oral Methadone is very different than IV Methadone.Oral Methadone is partially stored in the liver for later use. IV Methadone acts more like heroin. In most states you must go to a pain clinic or a Methadone maintenance clinic to be prescribed Methadone.
Methadone is a long acting pain reliever producing effects that last from twelve to forty-eight hours. Ideally, Methadone frees the client from the pressures of obtaining illegal heroin, from the dangers of injection, and from the emotional roller coaster that most opiates produce. Methadone, if taken for long periods and at large doses,can lead to a very long withdrawal period.The withdrawals from Methadone are more prolonged and troublesome than those provoked by heroin cessation, yet the substitution and phased removal of methadone is an acceptable method of detoxification for patients and therapists.1
The MTD One Step Methadone Test Strip yields a positive result when the Methadone in urine exceeds 300 ng/mL

8. Convenient Test Procedure
9. Storage: Room temperature
10. Shelf life: 24 months from date of manufacture
Allow test device, urine specimen, and/or controls to equilibrate to room temperature (15-30°C) prior to testing.
1. Bring the pouch to room temperature before opening it. Remove the test device from the sealed pouch and use it as soon as possible.
2. With arrows pointing toward the urine specimen, immerse the test strip vertically in the urine specimen for at least 10-15 seconds.Do not pass the maximum line (MAX) on the test strip when immersing it. See the illustration below
3. Wait for the colored line(s) to appear. The result should be read at 5 minutes. Do not interpret the result after 10 minutes
NEGATIVE:Two lines appear. One colored line should be in the control region (C),and another colored line should be in the test region (T).This negative result indicates that cotinine concentration is below the detectable level (200 ng/mL).
NOTE: The shade of the color in the test region (T) may vary,but it should be considered negative whenever there is even a faint line.
POSITIVE: One colored line appears in the control region (C). No line appears in the test region.This positive result indicates that the cotinine concentration is above the detectable level (200 ng/mL).
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 using a new test device.

High sensitivity and high quality
Q1: What's the method u use to do the test?
A: Colloidal Gold Method.
Q2: What's ur MOQ ?
A: Always, for strip format, the MOQ is 5000pcs. While for cassette format, MOQ is 2000pcs, same as midstream.
Q3: What's ur packing of the tests?
A: If u choose the low cost, we will suggest u the bulk packing to go. Which means 1 test in a single pouch, then 100/40 pouches in a plastic bag, 50 bags in a carton. If u need to sell in
pharmacy/chain shop or some countries which have strict requirements about the packing, u can choose to pack in a box, like 100pcs in a box, or even 1 test in a single box.
Q4: What's the main differences when comparing products from different suppliers?
A: U can compare the mainly features of the test: Accuracy, Sensitivity, Specificity, and then the Price.
Q5: Some tests can be tested with serum/plasma or with whole blood, so what's the difference?
A: Well, if the specimen is whole blood, people will need buffer, lancet and alcohol swab to help the test. If they buy all the accessories, they can test very easily at home. But if the specimen
is serum/plasma, it will need centrifuge to separate serum from whole blood first. This way, it's better to use at lab or hospital. And in some words, serum/plasma test will always give a more
Q6: How can i distinguish a good test kit?
A: U can judge from the 4facts:Technical data: Such as the accuracy, specificity and sensitivity
