The TCA Rapid Test Strip (Urine) is a lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay for the detection of Nortriptyline in human urine at a cut-off concentration of 1,000 ng/mL. This test will detect other related compounds, please refer to the Analytical Specificity table in this package insert. This assay provides only a preliminary analytical test result. A more specific alternate chemical method must be used in order to obtain a confirmed analytical result. Gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) or high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) are the preferred confirmatory methods. Clinical consideration and professional judgment should be applied to any drug of abuse test result, particularly when preliminary positive results are used.
TCA (Tricyclic Antidepressants) are commonly used for the treatment of depressive disorders. TCA overdoses can result in profound central nervous system depression, cardiotoxicity and anticholinergic effects. TCA overdose is the most common cause of death from prescription drugs. TCAs are taken orally and sometimes by injection. TCAs are metabolized in the liver, both TCAs and their metabolites are excreted in urine mostly in the form of metabolites for up to ten days. The TCA Rapid Test Dipstick (Urine) is a rapid urine-screening test that can be performed without the use of an instrument. The test utilizes a monoclonal antibody to selectively detect elevated levels of nortriptyline in urine. The TCA Rapid Test Dipstick (Urine) yields a positive result when the Nortriptyline in urine exceeds 1,000 ng/mL.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS
NEGATIVE:* A colored line appears in the Control region (C) and colored lines appears in the Test region (T). This negative result means that the concentrations in the urine sample are below the designated cut-off levels for a particular drug tested.
*NOTE: The shade of the colored lines(s) in the Test region (T) may vary. The result should be considered negative whenever there is even a faint line.
POSITIVE: A colored line appears in the Control region (C) and NO line appears in the Test region (T). The positive result means that the drug concentration in the urine sample is greater than the designated cut-off for a specific drug.
INVALID: No line appears in the Control region (C). Insufficient specimen volume or incorrect procedural techniques are the most likely reasons for Control line failure. Read the directions again and repeat the test with a new test card. If the result is still invalid, contact your manufacturer.
A comparison was conducted using the TCA Rapid Test Dipstick (Urine) and GC/MS. The following results were tabulated:
