- Remove NicoTests™ Second-Hand Smoke Cotinine/Nicotine Test Device from the foil pouch at room temperature.
- Take off the cap revealing the absorbent testing tip.
- Collect a urine sample in a suitable cup. A Dixie Cup is fine. (Note: if collecting from an infant use cotton swabs to collect urine from a diaper, then squeeze out the urine sample.)
- Immerse the testing tip vertically in the urine sample for at least 10 – 15 seconds. Do not allow the test tip to touch the urine collection cup. Only the absorbent tip should touch the specimen.
- Read at 5 minutes.
