This strip is made for the detection in human urine of tricyclic antidepressants.


Tricyclic antidepressants are used to treat obsessive compulsive disorders, behavioral problems, or to treat depression.

Like other pharmaceutical mollecules, they are often diverted from legal medical cricuit, and are misused by some people, especially to help reduce stress. Much use without medical supervision have also been identified in the workplace, or even the school environment and students.


This test is a qualitative assay (type "NO / YES"), and thus delivers a "NEGATIVE" or "POSITIVE" result.
