DCT-902 is a single hair drug test kit for Cotinine the first metabolite of nicotine and is used to detect nicotine use and smoking.
- Hair drug detection offers the unique advantage of long term detection of deposited residues in the sample strands used for analysis
- Ideally collect the hair sample for drug testing from the centre of the head and select a hair sample from close to the scalp (growth end) minimum 1 cm and not less than 100 mg
- Average hair growth is 1.25 cm / month. We recommend a 4 cm hair sample which will screen for drug deposits over approximately 3 month period
- Simple add buffer and lysing agent to sample for 5 minutes then run the hair drug test using the hair Cotinine drug test cassette.
- Premium hair drug test kit detecting just COT 0.2ng/ml.
- Read the hair drug test results in 5 minutes.
- Window of detection depends on hair sample length tested ranging from 1.25 cm ~ 1 month to 3.75 cm ~ 3 months.
- Cotinine is deposited in hair from all Nicotine sources including active smoking, vaping, Nicotine gums and Nicotine patches. The cut off level of 0.2ng/ml excludes passive inhalation of secondary smoke, so the Cotinine hair test can be used for zero tolerance nicotine use testing ( additional fee for this service)
- Hair cotinine testing is a good indicator of historic nicotine use
- 91.9% accurate compared to lab GC/MS hair drug testing.
- This assay provides a preliminary screening method for smoking
- Positive test results can be confirmed using a GC/MS laboratory service if required.
