OPIATE (OPI) (2000 ng/ml)
Opiates are drugs that produce a rush of intense pleasure, followed by a sense of well-being and a calm, drowsy state. Opiates are processed from opium, a chemical which is derived from the naturally occurring chemical morphine, which is found in the poppy plant. Opiates include the drugs heroin, morphine and codeine. All of these drugs are highly addictive and cause many health problems. Long term effects of opiates include collapsed veins, cellulitis, heart failure and abnormal brain wave patterns. Opiates are among some of the leading common drugs of abuse today.
Opiate generally refers to any drug that is derived from the opium poppy, including the natural products, morphine and codeine, and the semi-synthetic drugs such as heroin. Opioid is more general, referring to any drug that acts on the opioid receptor.
Opioid analgesics comprise a large group of substances which control pain by depressing the central nervous system. Large dose of morphine can produce higher tolerance levels, physiological dependency in users, and may lead to substance abuse. Morphine is excreted unmetabolized, and is also the major metabolic product of codeine and heroin. Morphine is detectable in the urine for several days after an opiate dose.4
1 Panel Opiate Drug Test Dip
The OPI One Step Opiate 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 morphine in urine. The OPI One Step Opiate Test Strip yields a positive result when the morphine in urine exceeds 2,000 ng/mL. This is the suggested screening cut-off for positive specimens set by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA, USA).
