This test detects the most important metabolite from nicotine in urine: cotinine. The cotinine test is easy to use and provides reliable detection of nicotine in urine.
Because nicotine has a half-life of 30-60 minutes, the cotinine test takes advantage of the long half-life of cotinine (approx. 17 hours). This provides proof of a smoked cigarette, even long after use. Because Cotinine and Nicotine are both metabolised by the liver enzyme Cytochrome P450, the detection of Cotinine is simultaneously proof of previous Nicotine presence.
Due to the simple operation, not only do doctors use this cotinine test in smoking cessation programmes, but also youth facilities and addiction/therapy centres.
Delivery contents: 20 cotinine test cassettes, disposable pipettes and detailed testing instructions.
