Rapid Nicotine Urine Test
The Rapid Nicotine urine test accurately identifies tobacco users by screening for cotinine. Cotinine is the major metabolite of nicotine and is the preferred marker of nicotine use because its half-life is much longer than nicotine. Therefore, the presence of cotinine is a reliable indicator of tobacco use. Because the Rapid Nicotine Test uses a relatively high cut-off level of 200 ng/mL, users can be confident that individuals with positive results are tobacco users.
The Rapid Nicotine Test is a qualitative test that gives pass/fail results. The presence of cotinine at or above the cut-off level prevents a line from forming at the drug indicator. If cotinine is not present, or is present at a concentration less than the cut-off level, a line forms at the drug indicator. The absence of a line indicates a positive result.
