Instant Drug Test Strip for COC Cocaine

Derived from the leaves of coca plant, cocaine is a potent central nervous system stimulant and local anesthetic. Physical and psychological effects of cocaine use include increased heart rate, fever, pupil dilation, diaphoresis, euphoria and increased energy. Biologically, cocaine is rapidly metabolized to benzoylecgonine. The half-life of benzoylecgonine (5 to 8 hours) is much longer than of the parent compound cocaine(0.5 to 1.5 hours). Benzoylecgonine can be detected in urine up to 3 days after cocaine use.


The Cocaine Rapid Test Strip (Urine) detects Cocaine through visual interpretation of color development on the strip. Drug conjugates are immobilized on the test region of the membrane. During testing, the specimen reacts with antibodies conjugated to colored particles and pre-coated on the sample pad. The mixture then migrates through the membrane by capillary action, and interacts with reagents on the membrane. If there are insufficient drug molecules in the specimen, the antibody-colored particle conjugate will bind to the drug conjugates, forming a colored band at the test region of the membrane. Therefore, a colored band appears in the test region when the urine is negative for the drug. If drug molecules are present in the urine above the cut-off concentration of the test, they compete with the immobilized drug conjugate on the test region for limited antibody binding sites. This will prevent attachment of the antibody-colored particle conjugate to the test region. Therefore, the absence of a colored band at the test region indicates a positive result. The appearance of a colored band at the control region serves as a procedural control, indicating that the proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.
