NIDA 5 panel Test
National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA), after doing thorough research has finally identified five drugs which are found to be most popularly used and most harmful. Hence 5 panel test kits are designed using this combination of NIDA 5 and are named as NIDA 5 panel test kits. The five harmful substances of NIDA 5 include Cannabinoids, Cocaine, Amphetamines, Opiates and Phencyclidine or PCP. These test kits contain immunoassays which are helpful to detect the cannabies and Amphetamines in the sample. For cocaine, the metabolite called benzoylecgonine is regularly screened in the urine. Same procedures are applied to determine methamphetamine, opiates and PCP in the urine.
