S5 on-site artificial urine drug testing controls. Toxicology controls prepared from artificial urine matrix are designed to monitor the performance of onsite drug of abuse lateral flow tests devices using a urine sample. S5 controls are compatible with all the qualitative and quantitative drug detection procedures and devices that are based on their sensitivity to detect drug and drug metabolites in human urine using the immunoassay lateral flow method. This method is used in virtually all onsite drug of abuse test devices. They should be treated as any "unknown" urine specimen when following the specific protocol of the test being used.
Controls are stable for one year when refrigerated at 2-8° Centigrade and up to 90 days when stored at room temperature from date of opening. Controls should be stored out of, and protected from direct sunlight.
