Most employers use urinalysis for drug testing, and this may be behind the rising demand for synthetic urine in recent years. Proper use of the product, however, is key to success.
Reasons to Synthetic Urine Warm
Because initial drug screening does not usually come with a special test for a the validity of a sample, the testing staff simply checks the urine’s temperature to ensure that it hasn’t been substituted. Because natural human urine is warm, you should also submit your synthetic urine sample warm; otherwise, the testing staff will think that it’s fake and reject it. Of course, getting caught also spells trouble with the person or organization that required the testing, not to mention with the facility itself.
Temperature of Human Urine
Normal human urine temperature is about 94F to 96F warm. The temperature of a drug test sample is taken within the first 4 minutes after being received by the staff, as ambient temperature can cause changes anytime later. The acceptable range is from 90F to 100F; if a sample is any cooler or warmer, it is automatically questionable.
Heating Synthetic Urine
These are the most common methods of heating synthetic urine:
Microwaving synthetic urine is by far the simplest way to warm it up enough. Just place the container in the microwave for around 10 seconds and you’re done. A temperature strip comes in handy when it comes to checking the usability of the sample. Don’t leave it in for longer as excessive heat can destroy it. Even if it cools down, the properties of natural human urine will not be restored.
Hand warmers are much smaller and more readily available, so they’re Generally considered a better alternative to the microwave. All you have to do is pour the sample into a small container or a sealed bag, and wrap the hand warmer around it with the help of an elastic band or tape. Not all hand warmers work the way however. Buy one that maintains heat in the 90F to 100F range for as long as necessary.
Sometimes, you won’t have to look for – your own body can be your best synthetic urine warmer. After putting the sample in a sealed plastic bag, tuck it inside your underwear or in your inner thighs. Under the armpits is also a good spot, and if you’re a woman, you can secure it in your bra.
Practice Is Key
Lastly, make it a point to practice your moves before going in for testing. You should know what you have to do and how you can do it best so as not to appear suspicious. The more you practice, the more relaxed you will and the more likely you can pull this off.
