Beckman Coulter Syva Emit II Plus 6-AM, Syva Emit II Plus BUP
Beckman Coulter Diagnostics made available the Syva Emit II Plus 6-AM and Syva Emit II Plus BUP assay for drug-of-abuse screenings. The Syva Emit II Plus 6-AM assay is for screening heroin use. According to Beckman Coulter, it offers a more convenient and quicker method than alternative methods such as gas chromatography or mass spectrometry. It minimizes false positives by demonstrating no cross-reactivity to morphine, morphine metabolites, and common analgesics.
The Syva Emit II Plus BUP assay is intended for the qualitative and/or semi-quantitative analysis of buprenorphine in human urine. Its high specificity for buprenorphine and norbuprenorphine minimizes false positives, and does not cross-react with commonly abused opiates, according to Beckman Coulter.
