Reagents, Immunoassay, Rapid Test, Drug-of-Abuse, Cocaine/Metabolite
Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform qualitative analyses on a body fluid sample (typically urine) to determine cocaine and/or cocaine metabolites in a short period of time, typically several minutes. Cocaine is mostly consumed by nasal insufflation (snorting) as cocaine hydrochloride; it may also be smoked as a free base (crack). Immunoassay reagents designed for rapid screening of urine samples for cocaine usually measure inactive cocaine metabolites, typically benzoylecgonine, because only small amounts of cocaine are excreted in the urine. These tests are mostly used in emergency situations, especially before administration of anesthetics (e.g., during labor), due to the interaction between cocaine and anesthetic products.
