The NarcoCheck® BUP rapid test strip is an immunoassay for fast the detection of buprenorphine (Subutex®) use in human urine.
Buprenorphine is better known under its trade name: Subutex®.
Subutex® is a drug used to treat heroin addicts. It is 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.
This urine strip detects the intake of buprenorphine. It is particularly useful in the follow-up of heroin addicts during weaning.
