Reagents, Immunoassay, Rapid Test, Drug-of-Abuse, Opiate, Meperidine
Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform qualitative analyses on a body fluid sample (typically urine) to determine meperidine in a short period of time, typically several minutes. Meperidine, a synthetic agent with morphine-like properties, has therapeutic use as a short-term analgesic. It is administered orally as meperidine hydrochloride. Meperidine produces a state of sedation and euphoria similar, but less intense than, natural opiates, creating a high potential for abuse. Reagents for meperidine determination in urine samples can detect its use typically for one to four days after use. They are especially useful in emergency situations.
