Ketamine test is an immunochromatography based one step in vitro test. It is designed for qualitative determination of ketamine in human urine specimens at cut-off level of 1000 ng/ml. This assay has not been evaluated in the point of care location and is for use by Healthcare Professionals only. This assay provides only a preliminary analytical test result. A more specific alternative chemical method must be used in order to obtain a confirmed analytical result.
1.When you are ready to begin testing, open the sealed pouch by tearing along the notch. Remove the test from the pouch.
2. Immerse the strip into the container with the arrow end pointing towards the container. Do not immerse past the MAX (maximum) line. Take the strip out after 8-10 seconds and lay the strip flat on a clean, dry, nonabsorbent surface (e.g., mouth of the serum container).
3.Wait 3-8 minutes and read result. Do not read results after 8 minutes.
1.Review “Specimen collection” instructions. Test device, patient’s samples, and controls should be brought to room temperature (20-30℃) prior to testing. Do not open pouches until ready to perform the assay.
2.Remove the test device from its protective pouch (bring the device to room temperature before opening the pouch to avoid condensation of moisture on the membrane). Label the device with patient or control number.
3.Hold the dropper vertically and transfer 3 full drops of urine (approx. 0.15ml) to the specimen well (S) of the test device, and then start the timer. Use a separate pipette and device for each sample or control.
4.Read result between 3 to 8 minutes after the addition of samples. Do not read result after 8 minutes.
