The MOR Gold Rapid Screen Test Strip is a rapid qualitative competitive
binding immunoassay for determination of Morphine and their
metabolites in urine.
MOR Test SUMMARY AND EXPLANATION OF THE TEST
The MOR Gold Rapid Screen Test Strip is a fast and easy to read membrane
chromatographic immunoassay with no need for instrument. The method
employs a unique combination of monoclonal and polyclonal
antibodies to specifically identify Morphine in urine with a high
degree of sensitivity.
Morphine, one of opiates’ derivatives, is central nervous system
stimulants that produce alertness, wakefulness, increased energy,
reduced hunger, and an overall feeling of well-being. Morphine has
been the preferred drug for the management of pain in cases of
advanced cancer and other severe conditions. Morphine and other
Opiates’ metabolites may be detected in urine as a result of heroin
morphine, codeine, or poppy seed intake. Administration of large
doses of Morphine can cause tolerance and physiological dependence
in users, and can lead to substance abuse. D-Morphine is controlled
substances. GC/MS or immunoassay method has been developed for the
determination of 300ng/ml for Morphine.
During a test labeled antibody-dye conjugate mixes with urine
specimen and binds to the free drug if it is presented in the
sample, to form an antibody-antigen complex. This complex prevents
the formation of pink color bands in the test zone of the dip-stick
if drug to be detected in specimen is above the detection levels
(300ng/ml for Morphine). In case of absent of drug and its
metabolites, unbound dye conjugate will bind to the antigens
immobilized in the test zone to form a pink reaction line. To serve
as a quality control for the assay, another pink line will always
appears in the test zone regardless positive or negative result.
REAGENTS AND MATERIALS PROVIDED
The kits should be stored at temperature 4-30°C the sealed pouch
for the duration of the shelf life (18 months).
MOR Test SAMPLE COLLECTION AND PREPARATION
Collect a fresh urine sample in the urine cup, without any
preservatives. Urine specimens may be refrigerated (2-8°C) and
stored up to 48 hours before testing. Urine samples exhibiting
visible precipitates should be filtered, centrifuged or allowed to
settle. Use only clear aliquots for testing.
1. Bring the urine sample and test components to room temperature
2. When ready to test, remove the test device by tearing.
3. Dip the strip in the urine sample for a few seconds. Make sure
that the urine level is below “Max” line. As soon as solvent front
reached the membrane area place the strip on a clean surface.
4. Read the result in 5-10 minutes.

MOR Test WARNING AND PRECAUTIONS
1. For in vitro diagnostic use only.
2. Do not use kit beyond the expiration date.
3. Urine specimens may be infectious; properly handle and dispose
of all used reaction devices in biohazard container.
MOR Test INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS
1. Negative: Two pink color bands appear. This indicates MOR in the specimen is
below the detection sensitivity (300ng/ml).
2. Positive: Only one pink band for control appears. This indicates the MOR in
the specimen is above the detection sensitivity.
3. Invalid: The presence of a control line is necessary to validate test
performance. If no band appears the test should be repeated with a
new test device.
Note: There is no meaning attributed to color intensity for C and T
