Specimen validity tests are carried out on a urine drug screen specimen which helps in the process of substitution, dilution and, adulteration.

Specimen Validity Testing Market

Substitution- Substitution involves the process of separating water or salt from the specimen and is recognizing by extreme creatinine and any other specific results.

Dilution- In this process, if the drug in the urine is diluted due to the excess of water present in the body below the minimal value, the results can show a false negative.

Adulteration-A contaminant might be added in the sample to affect the testing reagents negatively.

Specimen validity tests are very essential when it comes to urine drug tests. This test supplies disorder analysts with important details about the reliability and accuracy of drug test results, after examining if the specimen received is a valid human urine specimen.

Indicators used during a specimen validity test include:

1)    Creatinine
2)    Specific Gravity
3)    pH
4)    Dilute Specimens
5)    Substituted Specimen
6)    Adulterated Specimen
7)    Invalid Specimen

COVID-19 scenario analysis:

Pharmaceutical and biotech companies together with governments around the globe are working to address the COVID-19 outbreak, from supporting the development of vaccines to planning for medicines supply chain challenges. Currently, around 115 vaccine candidates and 155 molecules are in the R&D pipeline. Moreover, commonly used drugs such as Hydroxychloroquine have witnessed a dramatic surge in demand for the management of COVID-19. Such high demand for these drugs has presented huge opportunities for manufacturers of COVID-19 management drugs, as many developed countries are short of these drugs. Owing to the demand for vaccine and treatment drugs for COVID-19, the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry is expected to witness a significant growth in the future.

Owing to such factors, COVID 19 is expected to have a significant impact on the Specimen Validity Testing market.
