Illicit substances tests: new parameters

We are glad to announce we enlarged our range of tests to detect illicit substances.
We offer now tests able to detect specific metabolites, like the 6- MAM test as well as to identify the abnormal use of narcotic  and analgesic substances. 

6-MAM:6-Monoacetylmorphine (6-MAM) or 6-acetylmorphine (6-AM) is one of three active metabolites of heroin )diacetylmorphine), the others being morphine and the much less active 3-monoacetylmorphine (3-MAM). 

6-MAM is rapidly created from heroin in the body, and then is either metabolized into morphine or excreted in the urine. 6-
MAM remains in the urine for no more than 24 hours. So a urine specimen must be collected soon after the last heroin use, but the presence of 6-MAM guarantees that heroin was in fact used as recently as within the last day.

We offer an immunochromatographic test with 10 ng/ml cut- off value.

 Other new tests are:

  • Methylphenidate ( MPD300) : a psycho stimulant

  • TZD Trazodone : antidepressant drug

  • ZAL Zaleplon : a non benzodiazepine sedative-hypnotic

  • EtG for alcohol consumption
