Instant Urine Cotinine (Nicotine) Screen

This instant urine cotinine (nicotine) screen will qualitatively determine the presence or absence of cotinine in urine.  Cotinine is the primary metabolite of nicotine and is the test of choice to evaluate active nicotine use or exposure in all forms, including tobacco, cigarettes, and vaping.  This test is considered a screening tool only.  Positive results are considered presumptive, and should not be interpreted as definitive evidence of nicotine use without additional laboratory-based confirmation testing.  Laboratory confirmation of presumptively positive instant drug test results is available if necessary.  Additional charges for laboratory confirmations may apply.
