Benzodiazepines are medications that are frequently prescribed for the symptomatic treatment of anxiety and sleep disorders. They produce their effects via specific receptors involving a neurochemical called gamma aminobutyric acid. Because they are safer and more effective, Benzodiazepines have replaced Barbiturates in the treatment of both anxiety and insomnia. Benzodiazepines are also used as sedatives before some surgical and medical procedures, and for the treatment of seizure disorders and alcohol withdrawal. Risk of physical dependence increases if Benzodiazepines are taken regularly (e. G., daily) for more than a few months, Only trace amounts (less than 1%) of most Benzodiazepines are excreted unaltered in the urine; Most of the concentration in urine is conjugated drug. The detection period for the Benzodiazepines in the urine is 3-7 days.
One Step Benzodiazepine Urine Test is a rapid urine screening test that can be performed without the use of an instrument. The test utilizes a monoclonal antibody to selectively detect elevated levels of benzodiazepine in urine. Test yields a positive result when Benzodiazepine levels in urine reaches 300ng/ml.
