Chemical Adulteration

Chemical adulteration is the process of adding exogenous chemicals to the urine sample to prevent proper identification of the drug. A wide range of commercial products is available. These adulterants, often comprised of corrosive and toxic chemicals, are advertised as being able to prevent laboratories from detecting drugs or their metabolites in urine. Usually, the product consists of one or two small vials, which can be easily hidden. During collection, the user would mix the vial content with the urine sample. Many of these products offer 200% money back guarantee if they fail to beat the drug tests. Although product formulations are frequently changed to foil detection, recently developed adulterants are mostly oxidants (examples include nitrite, pyridinium chloro-chromate [PCC], hydrogen peroxide, and iodine). Brands like Urine Luck™, Stealth™, and ADD-It-ive™ are most popular.
