The NarcoCheck® BUP rapid test strip is an immunoassay for fast the detection of buprenorphine use in human urine.
Buprenorphine is better known under its trade names: Subutex®, Suboxone® and Temgesic®.
Subutex® and Suboxone® are drugs used to treat heroin addicts. They are a substitute product. Compared to Methadone, buprenorphine acts less painfully in high doses, but can cause side effects, such as sweating, insomnia, depression, fatigue and libido disorders.
Temgesic® is a painkiller that also contains buprenorphine.
This urine strip detects the intake of buprenorphine. It is particularly useful in the follow-up of heroin addicts during use cessation.
