Product Overview for BAR
Barbiturates are a class of central nervous system depressants. There are three types of Barbiturates: short acting, short-to-intermediate acting and long acting. Phenobarbital is an example of long acting barbiturate while Pentobarbital and Secobarbital are examples of short acting barbiturates. The short acting barbiturates are used as anesthetics or sedatives in conjunction with other inhalants. The short-to-intermediate acting barbiturates are used as sleeping pills. Short-to-intermediate acting barbiturates are the most commonly abused barbiturates; these include amobarbital, butabarbital and secobarbital. Long acting barbiturates are used for treatment of epilepsy, ulcers and high blood pressure. Barbiturate abuse can lead to impaired motor coordination, mental disorder, respiratory collapse, coma and even death. Barbiturates can be detected in urine for 4 to 6 days after use.
The Fastect® II Drug Screen Dipstick Test kit should be stored at room temperature 59°F to 86°F (15°C to 30°C) until the expiration date on the pouch. Do not open the pouch until ready to perform the test.
