DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Preparation: Appropriate sites on the body for patch application and wear, as seen in Figure 1 (shaded areas), include areas of the chest along the lower rib and lateral to the midline, and outer portion of the uppers arms or back. Avoid areas of excessive body hair. Using a conventional 70% isopropanol swab (not contained), gently but firmly clean the entire area of the skin site selected for patch placement. Hands of the authorized, trained professional applying the patch should be cleansed prior to application procedure or non-talc latex gloves should be worn. Cleanse the area completely, about six to seven inches in diameter removing natural skin oils and surface matter. Allow the alcohol to air dry at room temperature for 60 to 90 seconds as the skin must be completely dry to assure proper adhesion. Do not wipe or touch this area prior to application.
Patch Application: Open package and remove sterile patch. Note that the patch has two sides: one with a white border liner and the other with a white liner with DrugTestsInBulk.com labeling.

Step 4: Locate the slit in the white border cover and carefully peel away the white border cover using the index finger of the opposite hand to press the clear adhesive margin to the skin during this removal process (see Figure 2).
Step 5: Once the white border cover is removed and discarded, the white absorption pad, ten-digit numerical code and clear adhesive border are clearly visible (see Figure 3).
Step 6: Once the patch is secured to the subject’s skin, it is advised to gently rub the patch along the clear adhesive border to promote adhesion, making sure that there are no folds, creases or channels.
Step 7: The ten-digit code number within the patch is unique to each patch and permits a record of this number to be made on the appropriate documentation or Chain of Custody form.
