Versatile functionality is not a description for all drug testing devices. Most drugs of abuse (DOA) tests are typical, simple cups that collect the specimen with no means to control when or how the test is run. ALFA’s Push-button, SplitScreen drug test cup is versatile in its function due to the patented design that has a push button activation feature and separated specimen collection areas. This versatile urine drug test allows for a higher level of efficiency and diagnostic accuracy when compared to other urine drug tests.
Test for 14 Drugs
ALFA’s SplitScreen DOA Cup allows the operator to simply push a button to activate the test and is available for detecting 1 to 14 different drugs. This allows for an incredible increase in efficiency when assessing the intoxication status of a routine addiction patient who regularly abuses a handful of drugs or a new patient who is at the clinic for the very first time. Instead of having to use 14 individual drug tests, the operator can gain the results of all 14 drug tests in one screening process and with one sample.
Includes a Temperature Strip to Determine Specimen Condition
ALFA’s SplitScreen Cup has a temperature strip enabling the operator to assess the validity of the specimen at the time of testing. Guidelines for drug tests using urine suggest an acceptable window of 90 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit. This temperature range allows the operator to most accurately assess the validity of the test and interpret the body’s current state of interaction with the drugs.
Ensures Sample Integrity
Despite the high accuracy levels of ALFA’s drug screen tests, confirmation testing performed by confirmatory laboratories is required for all positive test results . The Push-button SplitScreen cup’s design caters to the safety of urine specimen integrity during transportation to confirmatory laboratories.. The cup is made so that with the simple push of a button, only a portion of sample enters the testing chamber while the remaining sample stays in an external chamber. This design maintains a separation between the sample and testing reagents, guaranteeing that the untested sample is not contaminated by the testing reagents. The arrangement as a whole eliminates the possibility of leakage or contamination during any kind of transfer.
Allows for Easy and Accessible Documentation
In the hustle and bustle of the clinic, precious time is saved by how each drug can be simultaneously tested in a clean and easy manner. Furthermore, time is saved by how easily multiple results can be neatly recorded as permanent records. With the growing number of cases that require screening for drugs of abuse, a method of recording all the results in a timely manner is necessary. Having to align small strips from individual drug tests or even combine the results from individual tests electronically can be extremely tedious. However, ALFA’s SplitScreen cup has two flat surfaces, each of which hold up to 7 drug testing strips. With such a configuration, the sample not only tests for up to 14 drugs at one time, but the operators of the cups can easily photocopy the results of all 14 drug screens in just one trip, making the documenting process much more efficient and organized.
