Product name:Methamphetamine ELISA Kit
The Methamphetamine Direct ELISA Kit is a specific and sensitive in-vitro test to detect the presence of d-methamphetamine in samples such as whole blood, oral fluids, serum, plasma and urine. While the assay will detect amphetamine use, inter?ference by l-methamphetamine and pseudo-ephedrine is virtually nonexistent. Methamphetamine is a potent central nervous system stimulant with less peripheral actions than mphetamine. The (+)-isomer also referred to as d-methamphetamine is ten times more potent than the (-)-isomer, l-methamphetamine. Amphetamines act by inducing euphoria, irritability, anxiety and paranoia Methamphetamine is metabolized to its active metabolite amphetamine (via N-demethylation) and is further metabolized by hydroxylation and deamination of amphetamine. Urinary excretion rates are influenced by the urinary pH with acidic urine favoring the excretion of unchanged drug. Alkaline urine reduces the excretion of unchanged methamphetamine to less than 5% of the dose.
