5 panel urine drug testing kit for legal highs NPS

Until recently drug testing for “Legal Highs” has not been possible however this year the drug test manufacturers have produced a range of new drug test membranes to cater for an increasing desire to be able to screen for the this very common group of new drugs known as “legal highs” or New Psychoactive substances ( NPS )

Gradually the range of new drugs that we can test for will increase as the drug test kit manufacturers catch up with the drug manufacturers.

The latest addition to the drug test armoury is the 5 panel Legal Highs urine drug testing kit that tests for MDMA, K2, Ketamine, MEP Mephedrone, MDPV Bath Salts.

The drug testing kits are 97% accurate when compared to a lab GCMS urine drug test and give results in minutes. They are available to buy online with next day UK delivery from UK Drug Testing.

If you are screening in a workplace setting all non negative results (positives ) will need to be confirmed with a laboratory chain of custody urine drug test for the specific drug that was detected. The lab drug test will cost about £40 plus VAT per drug.

If you require trade or wholesale pricing contact trade@adtuk.co.uk or telephone 01263 731 168 during office hours Monday to Friday.

 

Drug testing kits for Cannabis & K2 spice (Synthetic Cannabis )

Drug testing kits for Cannabis can detect cannabis use for up to 28 days, Most drug testing kits for cannabis will detect both the parent cannabis drug and the metabolite of cannabis, the first break down product as the body metabolises and breaks down the cannabis drug, clearing it from the body. The most reliable type of drug testing kits for cannabis are urine cannabis drug tests. These cannabis drug testing kits give the longest detection times, longer than saliva drug testing kits for cannabis. Urine drug testing kits for synthetic cannabis or K2 are also available.  This is sometimes sold as spice mix, K2 spice.

Not all drug testing after cannabis use will remain positive for 28 days, this is only the case after regular heavy long term usage. Most urine cannabis drug testing kits will remain positive for cannabis for 5-7 days after a single exposure. UKDrugTesting is about to launch a new multi sensitivity cannabis urine drug test with cut off levels at 4 sensitivities. This will give a semi quantitive indication of the actual urinary cannabis drug levels at the time of testing and allow clearance of the cannabis drug and metabolite to be monitored in users.

Drug testing kits for cannabis in saliva have a shorter detection period after use. They are ideal where testing needs to indicate recent usage or actual intoxication as they will become positive within a very short time os use. This makes them ideal for workplace cannabis drug testing, especially in HSE critical employment settings, where historic use needs to be isolated from recent and current use.

Drug testing kits for Cannabis start from around £1 per test. Professional quality urine drug testing kits for single drugs including Cannabis are available for UK Drug Testing

Individual drug testing kits for cannabis are available in cassette (with pipette) formats and dip strip formats and as part of a range of multi panel drug testing dip cards and integrated collection cup and drug panel cup drug tests.

Drug testing for Cannabis is now historically established in many industries and most multi panel urine and saliva drug testing kits contain a membrane to test for Cannabis use. Employers considering introducing cannabis drug testing in the workplace should consider cannabis drug testing in combination with drug tests for Cocaine, Amphetamine, Opiates and Methamphetamine. This combination covers most commonly abused UK drug groups and will not be criticised as anything but comprehensive by insurers and HSE and ISO inspectorate. Other additional drug groups should be considered if there is a known local usage, or regional problems in the demographic being targeted.

K2 Spice Synthetic Cannabis Drug Testing Kits

In recent years the market in synthetic cannabis has expanded along with other legal highs in an attempt to circumvent the law.

Synthetic cannabis is now a class b drug in the UK and a schedule 1 drug in the US

These products remain widely available both through traditional street and club dealers but also via the internet.

Synthetic analogues of Cannabis are made by adding a chemical, principally JWH-018 (1-pentyl-3-(1-naphthoyl)indole) and  JWH-073 (which has been shown to produce behavioral effects very similar to THC) to a fibre or plant base material which is then consumed in a similar manner to traditional cannabis or skunk.

These mixtures are sold as K2 or K3 mix, spice, or incense.

Their metabolites are stable and detectable making a reliable screening test for abuse both accurate and specific.

With the growth in popularity we are recommending screening for these drug groups should be added to critical employment role drug screening (HSE testing, critical employment role, random and post incident testing)

Professional packs of 50ng urine strip test drug screens that screen for K2 Spice are available from ukdrugtesting.co.uk
