Rapid CDIATM Morphine Test kits are intended to screen for the presence of morphine in human urine.
Morphine is a naturally occurring substance extracted from the seedpod of the poppy plant, Papavar somniferum. Morphine is used medicinally for the relief of moderate to severe pain in both acute and chronic management. It can also be used to sedate a patient pre-operatively and to facilitate the induction of anesthesia. The drug is also used illicitly for recreational purposes among drug users. It is potentially highly addictive and can cause intense physical dependence that leads to abuse of the substance.
