Instant-view® Lateral Flow Test
Lateral flow assays have provided a very useful tool for three decades. Use of the technology is widespread and has proven an inexpensive way to screen, qualitatively and semi-quantitatively, in point-of-care environments. Lateral flow tests are used for medical diagnostics and detect the presence or absence of a target analyte in a sample matrix without the need for additional specialized and expensive medical equipment. The tests are utilized either for at-home-testing, point-of-care testing, or in clinical laboratories, depending on the tests regulatory clearances.
Throughout over 20-year history, ALFA has fine-tuned our manufacturing capabilities to a level that ensures the highest quality of lateral flow test output. All products are produced in the USA. ALFA's Instant-view™ lateral flow tests stand for quality our customers have come to rely on and trust.

What is Buprenorphine?
Buprenorphine is a medication that is prescribed to treat people with opiate addiction. It contains small amounts of opiates to make withdrawal easier and less painful.
How long is buprenorphine detected in the body?
Buprenorphine can be detected in the urine for up to a week after being used. In chronic or long-term users, this can be even longer.
What is buprenorphine used for?
Buprenorphine is also known as suboxone, subutex and temgesic and is used as a medication for addiction management. It is similar to methadone, but is thought to be less addictive and easier to transition off of.
What is the difference between suboxone and buprenorphine?
Suboxone also contains naxolone, which reverses the opioid reaction, in order to deter people from abusing it. If used correctly, the naloxone isn’t active because it won’t be absorbed by the body. If someone were to crush and/or inject the medication, the naloxone is activated, which would put the user into withdrawal instantly. Abuse of buprenorphine isn’t common in the United States.
What are the forms of buprenorphine?
Buprenorphine is available in many different forms. There are liquids for injection, implantable pellets, buccal films, and sublingual tablets. Patches are available overseas, but have not been approved for use in the United States.
What are the effects of buprenorphine?
Buprenorphine contains enough opioid for the person to be relieved of their withdrawal symptoms, but not enough for the person to feel “high.” Some people use buprenorphine with other drugs, like alcohol or benzodiazepines, in an attempt to feel the effects of the opioid. This is dangerous because both drugs can slow respirations, which can be potentially fatal.
What are the street names of buprenorphine?
Suboxone is also known as:
- Stop signs
- Box or Boxes
