Testing a Suspected Sample

To test a suspected sample, the operator twists open the tube containing the sampling swab and dabs the swab in the suspected sample. The operator then returns the sampling swab into the cap and twists the tube closed. After closing, the buffer solution travels through the swab, dissolves the sample, and carries it to the assay strip. The results are visible through the clear tube within one to three minutes. The presence or absence of fentanyl derivatives is displayed in one or two pink lines, respectively, on the test strip. This single-use, self-contained assay is designed to be leak proof and to safely contain the potentially hazardous sample inside the device after collection. FentAlert™ has an expiration of one year from the date of manufacture.

Instructions for the use of FentAlert as follows:

1. Twist counter-clockwise to expose swab

2. Use swab tip to sample

3. Reinsert and twist clockwise until reservoir is punctured

4. Keep device horizontal for 1–3 minutes as result displays on Test Strip

5. Interpret results: two stripes (a thick and a thin) means negative, one thick stripe means positive, and one thin stripe means invalid.
