Tricyclic antidepressants (TCA) are a type of prescription drug intended for clinically depressed patients. Unfortunately, they are becoming more frequently abused and are now one of the leading causes of death by drug overdose. TCAs are named after the drug's molecular structure, which contains three similar rings. The mechanism of how TCA works is not well understood. However, it is speculated that the drug inhibits the reuptake of neurotransmitters, norepinephrine and serotonin, ets. In nerve cells. In clinics, TCA is used to treat patients with depression, analgesia and nocturnal enuresis. Abuse of TCAs may lead to coma, respiratory depression, convulsions, blood pressure deviations, hyperpyrexia, and severe cardiac conditions. TCAs are excreted in urine mostly in the form of metabolites for up to ten days.
One Step Tricyclic Antidepressants Urine Test is a rapid urine screening test that can be performed without the use of an instrument. The test utilizes a monoclonal antibody to selectively detect elevated levels of Tricyclic Antidepressant in urine.

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

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
