FDA OK's American Bio Medica's drug test:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

American Bio Medica has gained FDA 510(k) clearance to sell in the US its point-of-care Rapid Tec 5 test, which can detect five classes of commonly abused illicit drugs from a single urine sample, says the company. The device, which provides qualitative identification of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), cocaine, PCP (phencyclidine), opiates and amphetamines, uses just a single test strip and as such is less expensive than other multiple drug screening devices, says the Kinderhook, New York firm. Sun Biomedical has also recently announced that it is developing a saliva drug test (see Clinica No 1019, p 19).
