Urine drug test kits are the most popular form of drug test used today. Often, urine drug tests work by detecting the presence or absence of drugs or drug metabolites in human urine samples. This is a very reliable method for testing and is broadly used. Urine drug tests are easy to use and easy to read. No special training is required for home drug testing.
There are three main types of urine drug test kits. They come in the following types of tests:
- Drug Test Dips (also known as "Panels")
- Drug Test Cassettes (also known as "Devices")
- Drug Test Cups (the drug test is integrated or built-in to the drug test cup)
Pros for urine testing are as follows: They depend on a solid technology and have an extensive scientific base. The results are accurate as well as reliable. They cost much less than other drug tests. Results are instantaneous and there is no need for a lab test or lab tech. They are easy to store and have a prolonged shelf life.
Cons for urine tests are as follows: Depending on the person's metabolism and the substance ingested, there is usually a 3 day to one month detection window. Urine tests are much easier to adulterate than other drug drug testing methods (like saliva, hair, sweat, or blood tests).
