The CDIATM Alcohol Colloidal Gold Test Cassette (Urine) is intended to use as a rapid method to detect the presence of alcohol in urine.
Alcohol antigen is coated on the test region of the nitrocellulose membrane of the strips, and alcohol antibody is labeled with colloid gold. During a test, the colloid gold labeled antibody coated in the strip move forward along the membrane, and a red line will show up when the antibody gathers with the antigen in the test line; if alcohol in the sample is over the detection limit, line T is blank; on the other wise, if alcohol in the sample is less than the detection limit, line T is red.
Alcohol intoxication can lead to loss of alertness,coma,death and as well as birth defects.The BAC at which a person becomes iaired is variable. The United States Department of Transportation (DOT) has established a BAC of 0.02% (0.02g/dL) as the cutoff level at which an individual is considered positive for the presence of alcohol. Determination of ethyl alcohol in blood,saliva and urine is commonly used for measuring legal impairment,alcohol poisoning, etc. The CDIATM Alcohol Colloidal Gold Test Cassette (Urine) is designed to rapidly determine if the alcohol level is higher than 0.02% by testing urine specimen.
