Premier Bio-Cup Certified Training
This training is intended to provide drug test administrators with the information to better understand the Premier Bio-Cup product and collection procedure. Please thoroughly read through all of the information within this training guide. Once you have read through this training, you may move on to the Certification Quiz. Following the completion of the quiz, you will receive a personalized certificate of training which you can print for your records.
The Premier Bio-Cup is a preliminary, rapid screening test for the presence of drugs/alcohol in a urine specimen. For a quantitative result, or to confirm a presumptive positive screen, a second alternative chemical method should be performed by a laboratory on the same urine sample. Liquid Chromatography/Tandem Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) or Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) are the preferred confirmation methods.

Storing And Packaging
- The Premier Bio-Cup should be stored at room temperature (15-30°C/59-86°F)
- Carefully inspect the foil pouch to ensure there are no tears, cuts, or damage.
- Check the lot number and expiration date. Do NOT use if past the expiration.
Specimen Collection Procedure
- Request the donor present a photo ID to confirm identity.
- Ask the donor to remove any unnecessary outer clothing and empty their pockets.
- Secure the collection site, keeping all backpacks and purses out of the restroom.
- Remove items that could be used to tamper the specimen (cleansers, disinfectants, etc.)
- Ask the donor to wash their hands prior to providing their sample.
- Open the foil pouch and remove the cup. Hand it to the donor and request the specimen.
- There is no minimum fill line, however 30mL of sample recommended (indicated on the cup) to ensure the temp strip will run and ample specimen for confirmation testing if required.
- After the donor has voided into the cup, replace lid and tighten it firmly. The cup has a cap closure indicator. When the indicated tabs are aligned, the cup is completely sealed.
- Check the temperature strip to make sure the specimen is within normal range. The temperature of the specimen should be within 90-100°F.
- Peel of the privacy label to interpret the results. The Premier Bio-Cup tests one drug per strip.
This makes the test easier to read as each strip contains its own control and test line.
- Make sure that the top control line (C) is visible for all test strips, otherwise the test is invalid and the results must not be used.
- Two lines appearing show a negative result for that test. Negative results may be read as soon as the top control line and bottom test line (T) appear. Any line, regardless of the color intensity is a line and indicates a negative result. It is NORMAL for line intensities to vary for different strips.
- A presumptive positive result is indicated by only the top control line present and the absence of a bottom test line.
- Read presumptive positive results at 5 minutes
- Results are stable for up to 60 minutes
Specimen Validity Testing
The Premier Bio-Cup may come with specimen validity testing. Testing is based on the color response of chemical indicators in the presence of adulterants. SVT helps to determine the integrity of a urine sample. Read the specimen validity test results by visually comparing the color of the reagent pads to the corresponding color blocks on the specimen validity color chart at 3 to 5 minutes. Pads that change to a color NOT listed in the normal range are to be read as abnormal.
