Instant Gabapentin Urine Dip Drug Test
Introducing the new CheckPoint instant gabapentin urine dip drug test. Compared to laboratory testing, the CheckPoint instant gabapentin urine dip drug test is a cost-effective screening test, providing preliminary test results. Easy to use, you can instantly read accurate results at 5 minutes with results stable for up to 10 minutes. This rapid on-site drug test detects gabapentin and Neurontin and its metabolites at the cutoff concentrations of 2,000 ng/mL in human urine. The instant gabapentin drug test is not FDA cleared and is intended for Forensic use only. Used as a preliminary screening test, the instant gabapentin urine dip drug test requires no instrumentation or laboratory analysis.
Why Test for Gabapentin or Neurontin?
Gabapentin (GAB), marketed under the brand name Neurontin, is an anticonvulsant medication used to treat epilepsy and neuropathic pain in adults. Although a non-narcotic medication thought to have a low abuse profile, gabapentin is increasing in its illicit use. In the last year some areas of the country have reported increased use of gabapentin by addicts. It is used by addicts to ease withdrawal symptoms, as well as those on methadone to amplify the effects of methadone. Users say it intensifies the methadone, and gives a semi-euphoric feeling. Gabapentin was the most-prescribed drug of any controlled substance in the state of Ohio in December 2016.
Interpreting Test Results
A red colored line should be observed in the control region marked C to indicate the test is performing properly. If no red line appears in the control region, the test is invalid and should be discarded and the operator should perform another test using a new dip cartridge. A red colored line observed in the test region indicates a presumptive negative test result. The color and density of the red line may vary in the control and test regions. A presumptive positive test result occurs if no red line appears in the test region.
The instant gabapentin urine dip drug test provides qualitative preliminary results which only indicates the presumptive presence of the drug in someone’s system. It does not measure intoxication levels. In other words, it will not measure the amount of gabapentin or Neurontin that is in someone’s system.
