The Scientist at Sciteck own virtually all of the patents and patents pending on Adulteration Testing Reagents and On-Site Products since the 1980's. We were the first to patent, develop and market adulteration testing reagents and on-site adulteration test strips. Anything else is just a copy. The industry for Adulteration Reagents (SVT™) and Products is a yearly multi-million dollar industry.

Specimen Validity Testing (SVT™):

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) administers the mandatory guidelines for Federal Workplace Drug Testing Programs (FWDTP) as specified by Executive Order 12564 and delineated in the Federal Register Vol. 53 FR 11970-11989 and Vol. 59 FR 29908-29931. Current employees, and those seeking employment, under the auspices of the FWDTP, or other federally mandated programs (e.g. DOT, DOE, NRC and FHWA) are all subject to testing for drugs-of-abuse in urine (DAU) and Specimen Validity Testing (adulteration). It is known that a significant number of unwilling participants in workplace drug testing programs attempt to substitute, modify or adulterate their urine samples in order to prevent detection of illicit drug use. Adulteration methods include addition of foreign substances to the urine sample or dilution of said sample. Dilution may be “in vitro” (i.e. addition of water directly to the sample) or “in vivo” (i.e. consumption of large volumes of liquid one to three hours prior to collection of the sample. Both forms of dilution decrease the concentration of drug in the test subjects urine. In vivo dilution is usually aided by consumption of a diuretic and “B” vitamins to color the urine yellow.
