The BZO drug test measures various benzodiazepine preparations such as the residues of degradation products of Diapam and other similar medicines for the treatment of anxiety and insomnia from a urine and drink sample. The sensitivity of the test is 100 ng/ml.
Drug test manual
The head of the test strip marked with arrows is immersed in the urine or drink sample to a depth of about one centimeter (the maximum limit is marked on the strip) and held there for 15-20 seconds. Then the strip is lifted off and placed horizontally. The result is read after 5 minutes (no more than 10 minutes).
- Two lines (C and T) are a negative result, i.e. it indicates that there is no amount of benzoic compound to be observed in the sample.
- The C-line alone (i.e. the absence of a T-line) indicates that the sample contains benzos.
- In the absence of a C-line, the test has failed and must not be interpreted in any way.
Benzodiazepines are medicines used to treat anxiety and insomnia, among other things. Highly misused benzodiazepine preparations include diazepam, clonazepam, alprazolam and oxazzepam. Benzos are also often used as knockout drops by mixing them with other drugs and drinks. There are almost 100 different types of misused benzos.
