The Cotinine Urine Laboratory Test Kit offers an easy and convenient method to detect the presence of Cotinine/Nicotine in an individual’s system through a urine sample. It follows the cut off level of 500 ng/mL with a detection period of approximately 2-3 days after nicotine consumption.

Cotinine is a metabolite of nicotine and is used as a biomarker for exposure to tobacco use. Individuals who do not smoke or is not exposed to secondhand smoke do not have measurable cotinine. However, individuals who do smoke will typically have a higher cotinine level.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), tobacco use is one of the leading preventable causes of death in the United States. Compared with non-smokers, people who smoke increase their risk of coronary heart disease, stroke and lung cancer. Other health effects of tobacco smoke exposure include infertility, preterm delivery for pregnant women and low birth weight in newborns. (Source:

    "My son stayed with my sister over the summer and I wanted to know if he had been exposed to any tobacco smoke, as he said he had been but my sister insisted that he hadn’t (she’s quite a heavy smoker and has been known to light up in a car with kids inside) so I had him do this test and sure enough he had been exposed to hgih levels of tobacco smoke, this will make the next family barbecue interesting"
    "Easy to use service and outstanding customer service. Highly recommeneded! "
    "I found the sample collection to be easy enough (it should be, it’s just peeing into a cup) and the staff at the lab were professional and courteous. "
