PCP, technically known as Phencyclidine, is a hallucinogen that was first distributed as a surgical anesthetic in the 1950’s. However, it was soon removed from the market because people that had used it soon became delirious and experienced intense hallucinations. The effects of PCP range from mood swings, euphoria, hallucinations and self harming. It can be taken by inhalation, smoking, orally or intravenously. Not a common drug of abuse today, it is however still used frequently enough to need to be tested for.

Phencyclidine, also known as PCP or Angel Dust, is used in powder, capsule, and tablet form. The powder is either snorted or smoked after mixing it with marijuana or vegetable matter. Phencyclidine is most commonly administered by inhalation but can be used intravenously, intra-nasally, and orally. After low doses, the user thinks and acts swiftly and experiences mood swings from euphoria to depression. Self-injurious behavior is one of the devastating effects of Phencyclidine.
PCP can be found in urine within 4 to 6 hours after use and will remain in urine for 7 to 14 days, depending on factors such as metabolic rate, user's age, weight, activity, and diet.5 Phencyclidine is excreted in the urine as an unchanged drug (4% to 19%) and conjugated metabolites (25% to 30%).6
1 Panel Phencyclidine - PCP Drug Test Dip
The PCP One Step
Phencyclidine Test Strip 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 phencyclidine metabolite in urine. The PCP One Step Phencyclidine Test Strip yields a positive result when the phencyclidine metabolite in urine exceeds 25 ng/mL. This is the suggested screening cut-off for positive specimens set by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA, USA).
