ALFA Scientific Designs, Inc. Receives FDA OTC-CLIA Clearance for Product Line Additions Oxycodone and Morphine/Opiate


7/14/2010 12:36:02 PM

Alfa Scientific (Poway, California) announced today that it expanded its portfolio of OTC-CLIA Cleared drug of abuse tests, adding Oxycodone (100 ng/mL and 300 ng/mL) and Morphine/Opiate (300 ng/mL) to its existing product range.

In all, Alfa offers the following fourteen OTC-CLIA Cleared parameters:

Drug Analyte Cut Off Level Status AMP - Amphetamine 1000 ng/mL OTC-Cleared & CLIA-Waived BAR - Barbiturate 200 ng/mL OTC-Cleared & CLIA-Waived BZD - Benzodiazepeine 300 ng/mL OTC-Cleared & CLIA-Waived COC - Cocaine 300 ng/mL OTC-Cleared & CLIA-Waived MET - Methamphetamine 1000 ng/mL OTC-Cleared & CLIA-Waived MOR/OPI - Morphine/Opiate 2000 ng/mL OTC-Cleared & CLIA-Waived MOR/OPI300 - Morphine/Opiate 300 ng/mL OTC-Cleared (Complexity: Waived) MTD - Methadone 300 ng/mL OTC-Cleared & CLIA-Waived OXY – Oxycodone 100 ng/mL OTC-Cleared (Complexity: Waived) OXY300 – Oxycodone 300 ng/mL OTC-Cleared (Complexity: Waived) PCP - Phencyclidine 25 ng/ml OTC-Cleared & CLIA-Waived TCA - Tricyclic Antidepressant 1000 ng/mL OTC-Cleared & CLIA-Waived THC - Marijuana 50 ng/mL OTC-Cleared & CLIA-Waived XTC - Ecstasy/MDMA 500 ng/mL OTC-Cleared & CLIA-Waived

Cleared by the US FDA these OTC-CLIA products can be sold to CLIA-Waived facilities (in addition to the over-the-counter market). These tests are available in multi-drug dip cards, integrated cups, and single dip cassette formats. This greatly expands the potential market for these tests in laboratory settings, as a December 2008 CMS survey showed that over 60% of laboratories registered in CLIA-applicable states were certified under this categorization, while only a fraction of laboratory tests have been cleared for their use.

For more information on our drug screening tests please contact us today.
