Methodone Drug Tests

Methadone is a synthetic analgesic drug that is originally used in the treatment of narcotic addicts. Among the psychiological effects induced by using methadone are analgesia, sedation and respiratory depression. Overdose of methadone may cause coma or even death. It is administered orally or intravenously and is metabolized in the liver. The kidneys are a major route of methadone excretion. Methadone has a biological half-life of 15-60 hours. Urine based screening tests for drugs of abuse range from simple immunoassay tests to complex analytical procedures. The speed and sensitivity of immunoassays have made them the most widely accepted method for screening urine for drugs of abuse. Rapid MTD Test Dip Cards and Cassettes are based on the principle of the highly specific immunochemical reactions of antigens and antibodies which are used for the analysis of spe-cific compounds in biological fluids. These tests are a rapid, visual, competitive immunoassay that can be used for the qualitative detection of methadone in human urine.
