Sweat analysis allows the laboratory to identify both the “parent” drug and metabolite. With urine, the laboratory usually identifies only drug metabolites to determine if drug use occurred.
PharmChek® functions as a storage device, therefore, these drugs are retained on the absorption pad for detection at the laboratory. This concept holds true for opiates, (codeine, morphine, and heroin) as well as tetrahydrocannabinol (marijuana).
