This article will discuss the most common type of drug test, the "Dip Test". Dip drug tests come in 1 to 12-panel test configurations. A one-panel test will test for one drug at a time, two-panel tests for 2 drugs at a time, etc.
Most dip evaluations come separately packed in a foil pouch (one evaluation per pouch). Our five Panel Drug Test cup is round in shape and has a no-drip screw top lid.

1. Permit the evaluation panel and urine specimen to equilibrate to room temperature (15-30°C) before testing. Bring the pouch to room temperature prior to opening it. Eliminate the test panel in the sealed pouch and use it whenever possible.
2. Take the cap off outside the west end. With arrow(s) pointing toward the urine specimen, immerse the evaluation panel in the urine specimen for at least 10-15 minutes. Don't pass the arrows on the evaluation panel when immersing the panel. The identical process is followed to get a multi-panel evaluation card.
3. Put the test panel onto a non-absorbent level surface, start the timer and then await the colored line(s) to look. The outcomes must be read at 5 minutes. Don't interpret results after 10 minutes.
Please be aware: dive test assays provide only a preliminary analytical test result. A more specific alternative chemical method must be utilized as a way to obtain a confirmed analytical outcome.
INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS
POSITIVE: One colored line appears in the control region (C). No line appears in the test region (T). This positive response indicates that the drug concentration is above the detectable level.
