Negative or Positive Test Result ?
I have found this to be a very common question with people who are worried about seeing a faint line on the home reagent dip strip test. These are a basic preliminary qualitative test and thus are not quantitative so they will not show the exact level present. Whats nerve racking to some is geting a faint line which leads them to wounder am i just a little dirty ?
What the faint line does not meanDilution has been considered to be a cause of faint lines on drug test but remember the reagent either reacts or it doesnt , if the test has a validation screen in addition to the drug screen it will show If the creatinine and specific gravity (urine density) are in range, if they are not it indicates dilution .
When reading the drug test result, you will find a line at the very top of every testing window and that is the control region (C). The test is not considered valid without this line. Result is considered negative when a colored line appears in both the control (C) and test (T) region. If the colored line appears in the control region but not in the test region, the test is considered to be positive. Nevertheless, presence of any faint line in the test region (T) will indicate negative results no matter how light it is.
The color intensity of the line in a drug test result must not be confused with the quantity of drug present in the body. A positive urine drug test requires presence of minimum drug quantity in the urine specimen. In case of some drugs, the minimum drug quantity ( threshold or cut off value) is rather high such as amphetamines (1000ng/ml) whereas it’s low in other drugs such as marijuana (50ng/ml). The lower the minimum amount (threshold), the lighter the line will be in negative urine.
So a dark line is a high threshold and a faint line is a low threshold but still a negative. Remember, before you added urine there was NO LINE RIGHT?
Now for the bad news. I have seen many times a lab doing mass spec will skip the initial screen threshold and go straight to a confirmation level screen which is almost zero tolerance. For example THC should be initial run at 50 nl ( but is often run at 10nl in a lab mass spec) and confirmation is 1nl ( should only be ran if you fail initial screen) and if you fail and don't call them on it then your screwed.
If you are dirty and don't wish to go thru extended thc detox or just don't have time youre best option is substitution with a quality urine like "Fake It" Synthetic urine and a Quality device.
Are their risk to flushing to beat a urine drug test?
To be clear flushing is not proper detoxing so when a detox drink is called detox thats not whats really going on .
The flushing strategy involves putting large quantities of liquids into your body so that the metabolites will be washed out as fast as possible. It is unlikely that you will remove 100% of drug metabolites using this method, but it can be effective in reducing the concentration of drug traces in your sample to below the threshold .
The Office of Drug Enforcement at the Department of Transportation (DOT) asked Dr Edward Cone from the Addiction Research Center (ARC) to investigate how effective the flushing method was. He demonstrated that drinking 1 gallon of water made the gravity of marijuana in the system drop to extremely low level and also that the marijuana test results would be negative.
levels can stay low enough for a negative for a couple hours after the water was drunk but they subsequently returned to positive. The results were the same wither with "cleansing products" and regular drinking water. With any flushing rather if it's with certo or herbs or some 40 dollar drink you got at GNC or a head shop they all tell you to drink a gallon water afterwards. This is what causes it to dilute levels to pass.
If you are planning on using the flushing method, you will need to drink large volumes of liquids (water and anything else) before the test takes place.
Here's the issues and risk ....
For one flushing too far from a test can easily return to full levels so you have to load up on water pass a first piss containing pre water loading that still contains denser metabolite levels. Then you have to get the next piss submitted before it gets contaminated as levels return because your not DETOXED but DILUTED.
Failing from Dilution is a common result of imperfect flushing. Before a sample is drug screened it is VALIDATED .
Urine Validation screens check a sample to normal human levels for Creatinine , pH, Specific Gravity and looks for additives Nitrites, Glutaraldehyde , and Oxidants. So although the density of the drug metabolites are crashed so is the Specific Gravity or density (regardless of B vitamins to turn it yellow) of sample and Creatinine which has to show to prove its human. Allot of the information on flushing on the web is pretty dated and was from before validation testing became a regular part of a drug test.
This is why Passitkit.com doesn't sell the drinks and pills for this reason but produces custom powdered Synthetic urine kits. The First and probably the only real uric acid synthetic urine . It has never failed a test in 18 years which also shows how reliable their delivery kits for substitution like Urine Trouble synthetic urine kit and One Shot a temperature metered bottle perfect to pass a random urine test at any time.
