How many “drugs” can a “Point of Care” drug test device/kit detect?


This will vary from device to device and manufacturer to manufacturer. ITS “Point of Care” drug test devices/kits don’t just look for “drugs” , however, they also detect specific metabolites of drugs (i.e. what the body produces once it has processed a drug). Some of our “Point of Care” drug test devices/kits can also detect alcohol and some can also detect adulteration markers using sample validity testing (SVT). Usually, the more detection strips on a device then the higher the cost. Please see the specific ITS product descriptions which will indicate what is included / available. Or feel free to contact us to discuss your exact requirements – we are here to help.
