Scope Of Testing

SynCheck

SynCheck is a new test that can detect both synthetic and adulterated urine. While most labs are only able to detect adulterated urine, SynCheck also detects the presence of commercially available synthetic urines. ARIA is the only regional reference laboratory to currently offer a test incorporating next generation science. 

  • Counterfeit Urine Test

  • Oxidant History Test

  • Specific Gravity Index

  • pH

  • Creatinine

TRUE URINE LD TEST 

DETECTS SYNTHETIC URINE 

Identifies markers present in human urine which are measured to determine if the specimen originated from the urinary tract. The LD marker, called Urinary Tract Protein IV (UTP-IV) is a glycoprotein entering the urine from various parts of the urinary tract. The principal origin of the LD UTP-IV is the kidney and the balance of the protein is from other parts of the urinary tract. The UTP-IV proteins are stable in urine for at least a week at room temperature (20-30 °C) or for one month at refrigerated temperatures (2-8 °C). The finite stability of the markers was chosen to make the inclusion of these markers in counterfeit urine difficult. 

OXIDANT HISTORY 

DETECTS OXIDANTS FOR UP TO 30 DAYS 

The Oxidant History test measures markers normally present in urine which have been identified to be destroyed by the oxidant. Consequently, the absence of these markers detects oxidation even though the oxidant adulterant may no longer be present. As a consequence of detecting markers, not the oxidant per se, the history of oxidation 

pH SCREEN REAGENT 

The pH Screen Reagent test is based upon the color change of a pH-indicator dye mixture which is measured spectrophotometrically at two wavelengths. Acid adulteration detected as low as pH 1.5. 

URINE CREATININE 

DETECTS SIMPLE DILUTION AND IN-VIVO OVER-HYDRATION 

The Urine Creatinine reagent system utilizes an alkaline picrate solution with an added compound to decolorize endogenous bilirubin, hemoglobin, and protein, thus eliminating interference. The creatinine reaction is measured kinetically to virtually eliminate interferences from non-creatinine Jaffe-positive substances. Improvements include no interference from blood in urine, linear up to 500 mg/dL with no dilution. 

SPECIFIC GRAVITY INDEX 

DETECT SALTS INCLUDING BAKING SODA, SODIUM AND POTASSIUM

The automated SGI test enzymatically measures both sodium and potassium using a sodium-potassium dependent galactosidase as an index of specific gravity.

 

A low SGI value may be accompanied by a low Oxidant History value and a low Urine Creatinine value. In this case, the low Oxidant History value is due to sample dilution rather than the effects of an oxidant.

If the subject has loaded with creatinine and/or protein and consumed excess water prior to sample collection, the SGI value will be positive for dilution, the Urine Creatinine value may be normal, and the Oxidant History value may be decreased.

 

A high SGI value may be accompanied by a pH above 9.5 is indicative of adulteration by liquid drain opener or other strong alkali.
