- Remove the drug test from its sealed pouch and use it as soon as possible. For best results, perform the assay within an hour.
- Next, hold the strip by the end, where you can see the product name. To avoid contamination, do not touch the strip membrane.
- Then, holding the strip vertically, dip the test strip in the urine specimen for at least 10-15 seconds. Do not immerse above the maximum line (MAX) on the test strip. That’s about 1/5th of the way up the strip.
- After the drug test has finished, remove the strip from the specimen and place it on a non-absorbent flat surface. Start the timer and wait for the colored band(s) to appear. Read the result at 5 minutes. Do not interpret it after 10 minutes.

Why test for barbiturates?
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) classifies barbiturates as Schedule III Drugs. They are less addictive than drugs under Schedules I and II. However, they have current medical uses in the US.
Why do some people abuse barbiturates?
Barbiturates help people sleep and relax. As such, doctors prescribe them to people who need more sleep and relaxation.
Additionally, people who are using stimulant drugs like amphetamine need them to relax or sleep.
The problem is, some people become so dependent on barbiturates. As a consequence, they get hooked, and later on, develop resistance to the drug. When this happens, they need to take more drugs. This is when overdose most likely occurs.
