Intended Use

For the quantitative in vitro determination of Opiates in urine. This product is suitable for automated, semi-automated and manual use.

Clinical Significance

Opiates are naturally occurring alkaloids derived from the opium poppy, Papaver somniferum. Common opiates include morphine, codeine, and heroin, which is a semi-synthetic derivative of morphine.
Morphine and Codeine are potent analgesics. They are among the most effective and common medications for treatment of mild to severe pain. Heroin is the most commonly abused opiate. It may be snorted, smoked, or dissolved and injected subcutaneously or intravenously.
Opiates are absorbed rapidly, and primarily metabolised in liver. Heroin is converted quickly to 6-acetylmorphine or morphine, which is excreted in urine both unchanged and as glucuronide conjugates. Excretion takes place over 2 to 3 days. Codeine is excreted in urine as glucuronides, or norcodeine, or as morphine.
