MOP Rapid Test kit Background Information

Opioid analgesics comprise a large group of substances which control pain by depressing the central nervous system. Large doses of Morphine can produce higher tolerance levels and physiological dependency in users, and may lead to substance abuse. Morphine is excreted unmetabolized, and is also the major metabolic product of codeine and heroin. Morphine is detectable in the urine for several days after an opiate dose.

The MOP Rapid Test is a rapid urine screening test that can be performed without the use of an instrument. The test utilizes a monoclonal antibody to selectively detect elevated levels of Morphine in urine. The MOP Rapid Test yields a positive result when Morphine in urine reaches 300ng/mL.

MOP drug Rapid Test Principle

The MOP Rapid Test is an immunoassay based on the principle of competitive binding. Drugs which may be present in the urine specimen compete against the drug conjugate for binding sites on the antibody.

During testing, a urine specimen migrates upward by capillary action. Morphine, if present in the urine specimen below 300ng/ml, will not saturate the binding sites of the antibody coated particles in the test device. The antibody coated particles will then be captured by immobilized Morphine conjugate and a visible colored line will show up in the test line region. The colored line will not form in the test line region if the Morphine level is at or above 300ng/mL because it will saturate all the binding sites of anti- Morphine antibodies.

A drug-positive urine specimen will not generate a colored line in the test line region because of drug competition, while a drug-negative urine specimen or a specimen containing a drug concentration less than the cut-off will generate a line in the test line region. To serve as a procedural control, a colored line will always appear at the control line region indicating that proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.
