The NarcoCheck® FYL rapid test strip is an immunoassay for the fast detection of Fentanyl use in human urine
Fentanyl is an opioid analgesic, with effects up to 100 times those of morphine, but these effects last less. It is used in the treatment of chronic pain, when it requires the use of pain medications based on opiates.
Fentanyl is one of the molecules at the center of what has become known as the "opioid crisis", which has been raging mainly in North America since 2013-2015. The extremely strong addiction caused by Fentanyl and its derivatives has led to an unprecedented health crisis, causing the death of tens of thousands of people every year. Indeed, many patients fail to stop using these various opioid painkillers, and continue to obtain them on the parallel markets when they no longer have a medical prescription. The misuse and overconsumption of these opioids used without medical supervision leads to a very large number of overdoses, and the annual toll continues to rise.
This strip allows the detection or the monitoring of its use, with a reliability of 99%
