EASY Line Methadone Test is a chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of Methadone (MTD) and MTD metabolites in human urine at the cut-off 300 ng/mL concentrations. This assay provides only a preliminary qualitative test result. Use a more specific alternate quantitative analytical method to obtain a confirmed analytical result. Gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) is the preferred confirmatory method. Apply clinical and professional judgment to MTD test result, particularly when preliminary positive results are obtained. This one step test is very sensitive and only takes about 5 minutes.

Test results are read visually without any instrument. For “in vitro” diagnostic use only.

EASY Line Methadone Test is a competitive immunoassay utilizing highly specific reactions between antibodies and antigens for the detection of Methadone and their metabolites in human urine.

EASY Line Methadone Test is a rapid urine screening test that utilizes monoclonal antibodies to selectively detect elevated levels of Methadone in urine without an instrument.

Methadone is a narcotic analgesic prescribed for the management of moderate to severe pain and for opiate dependence (heroin, Vicodin, Percocet, Morphine). The pharmacology of Oral Methadone is very different from IV Methadone. Oral Methadone is partially stored in the liver for later use. IV Methadone acts more like heroin. In most states you must go to a pain clinic or a Methadone maintenance clinic to be prescribed Methadone. Methadone is a long acting pain reliever producing effects that last from twelve to forty-eight hours. Ideally, Methadone frees the client from the pressures of obtaining illegal heroin, from the dangers of injection, and from the emotional roller coaster that most opiates produce. Methadone, if taken for long periods and at large doses, can lead to a very long withdrawal period. The withdrawals from Methadone are more prolonged and troublesome than lose provoked by heroin cessation, yet the substitution and phased removal of methadone is an acceptable method of detoxification for patients and therapists.

EASY Line Methadone Test yields a positive result when the Methadone in urine exceeds 300 ng/mL.

 

EASY Line Methadone Test is an immunoassay based on the principle of competitive binding. Methadone which may be present in the urine specimen compete against their drug conjugate for binding sites on their specific antibody.

During testing, a urine specimen migrated upward by capillary action. Methadone, if present in the urine specimen below its cut-off concentration, will not saturate the binding sites of its specific antibody. The antibody will then react with the Methadone-protein conjugate and a visible coloured line will show up in the test line region of the test strip.  The presence of Methadone above the cut-off concentration will saturate all the binding sites of the antibody, therefore, the coloured line will not form in the test line region.

A drug-positive urine specimen will not generate a coloured line in the specific test line region of the strip because of drug competition, while a drug-negative urine specimen will generate a line in the test line region because of the absence of drug competition.

To serve as a procedural control, a coloured line will always appear at the control line region, including that proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.

The kit contains reagents for 30 tests in cassette (code 20005-1).

Accuracy

A side-by-side comparison was conducted using EASY Line Methadone Test and other commercially available rapid drug tests. Testing was performed on 120 samples.All the presumptive positive and negative results were confirmed by GC/MS.The following compound was quantified by GC/MS and contributed to the total amount of drugs found in presumptive positive urine samples tested.

Forty(40) clinical samples were run using EASY Line Methadone Test by an untrained operator at a Professional Point of Care site. Based on GC/MS data, the untrained operator obtained statistically similar Positive Agreement, Negative Agreement and Overall Agreement rates as trained laboratory personnel.

*Note: TCA was based on HPLC data.

Reproducibility

Reproducibility studies were carried out using commercially available standards.

The standard was diluted in normal, drug-free urine to give the appropriate concentration. Each specimen, at each concentration of analyte, was tested four times daily, in duplicate, for five consecutive days. A total of 40 determinations were made at each concentration. The results are given below:
