BUP 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) is a negative result, i.e. it indicates that there is no amount of Buprenorphine to be observed in the sample.
- The C-line alone (i.e. the absence of a T-line) indicates that the sample contains Buprenorphine.
- In the absence of a C-line, the test has failed and must not be interpreted in any way.
