This strip is made for the detection in human urine of benzodiazepines, which are part of anxiolytic drugs, hypnotics, anticonvulsants and muscle relaxants.
Benzodiazepines are generally prescribe to help some patients relax and relieve anxiety. However, these drugs are highly addictive, because of that, benzodiazepines require a real withdrawal supervised by a doctor to be stopped. Most patients are successful, but it still happens too often that others literally lose control of their consumption and sink into an addiction.
It also happens that some people subjected to high stress at work use benzodiazepines beyond a medical monitoring, which often leads to very strong dependence.
This test is a qualitative assay (type "NO / YES"), and thus delivers a "NEGATIVE" or "POSITIVE" result.
Cut-off : 300 ng/ml
This test will be positive if the sample tested contains at least 300 nanograms of one of the medications in this class of pharmacopoeia per milliliter of urine, or negative if the sample contains less or not at all.
Detection time of benzodiazepines in urine :
- 3 days if therapeutic use.
- up to 4 to 6 weeks for chronic use
