What is cotinine?
What is cotinine?
Cotinine is a metabolite of nicotine, a toxic substance that stimulates the central nervous system.
Where nicotine products are, cotinine is present. It’s in cigarettes, nicotine patches, gums, and nasal sprays.
Studies show that small doses of nicotine release adrenaline. In effect, this stimulates the user.
In larger doses, however, nicotine releases dopamine, consequently providing a sedative effect.
Why Use a Cotinine Test/Urine Cotinine Test?
Despite the risks associated with nicotine use, it is not considered a controlled substance by the FDA.
Employers and institutions still are within their right to test individuals for Cotinine. They may include a cotinine test when they initiate their drug screening procedures.
On the other hand, some employers may wish to assess the tobacco use within their workforce or enforce a no-smoking policy in their company.

12 Panel Now’s cotinine urine test strips use the lateral flow assay (LFA) technology.
This paper-based platform has the following qualities:
- detects substances in complex mixtures like urine
- made up of membranes infused with specific chemicals that help pinpoint the presence of specific drugs in pee
All you need to do is to dip the drug test strip into the urine, then wait for a few minutes. This gives the strip enough time to absorb the urine. Then, read the results.
Easy drug testing at a price you can afford!
Nicotine patches, nicotine gums and other products that contain nicotine can give you a false positive for a cotinine drug test.
It depends. If you’ve been inhaling smoke from many smokers in an enclosed area, then yes, you might test positive for cotinine. Otherwise, no, you won’t.
You can buy a cotinine strip on any store that sells drug testing supplies. However, make sure they’re safe and accurate. They should also be CLIA-waived and FDA-approved.
