The Scientists at Sciteck and the company it evolved from, Chimera Research, have been providing liquid reagents to laboratories for specimen validity testing in urine specimens submitted for DAU testing since 1989. Sciteck has the most extensive patented and patent pending technology for SVT adulteration. The SVT line consists of assays for pH, Specific Gravity, Nitrite (Non-Corrosive), Aldehydes, Oxidants, Chromate, Creatinine, and Halogens to include bleach. All 8 assays are liquid ready to use reagents for use on automated chemistry analyzers (Hitachi, Olympus, Beckman, etc.) and all produce quantitative and / or qualitative results for each analyte. Sciteck also provides a complete line of integrated controls and calibrators. Sciteck Scientist were also the first to develop, design and patent On-Site Adulteration Testing products (AdultaCheck® series). Unlike our competitors Sciteck actually develops and patents new technology to make your job easier.

Automated Urinalysis - AUTO-UA®
The AutoUA® System by Sciteck is a user-friendly, automated analyzing system for the quantitative and semi-quantitative analysis of fifteen (15) analytes in human urine. The system includes tests for pH, specific gravity, ketone bodies, beta-hydroxybutyric acid, bile acids, blood (Hgb), leukocyte esterase (WBC), nitrite, micro-protein (total), glucose, bilirubin, urobilinogen, creatinine and electrolytes (Na, K and Cl).

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.

Adulteration Chart 2011

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.
