As much as 95% of employers prefer urinalysis as a drug testing method, and this specific statistic may have increased the popularity of synthetic urine through the years. Proper use of the product, however, is key to success.
Importance of Keeping 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. Human urine is warm by nature, which means your synthetic urine sample should also be warm, or the testing staff may decline it, believing it’s fake. Of course, getting caught also spells trouble with the person or organization that required the testing, not to mention with the facility itself.
Human Urine Normal Temperature
Normal human urine temperature is about 94F to 96F warm. A drug test sample’s temperature must be taken within the first 4 minutes of being received by the staff, considering that changes can occur, depending on the ambient temperature. Acceptable range is from 90F to 100F, and any sample that lies outside of this deemed suspicious.
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. To know if the sample is usable, use a temperature strip. Don’t leave it in for longer as excessive heat can destroy it. The properties of natural human urine can no longer be restored even as the sample’s temperature decreases.
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. Hand warmers aren’t all created equal however. Get one that maintains a 90F to 100F heat range and will remain there for as long as you need it to.
You may not have to look far – your own body can be your most effective synthetic urine warmer. Once the sample is in a sealed plastic bag, put it between your inner thighs or inside your undies. Under the armpits is also a good spot, and if you’re a woman, you can secure it in your bra.
Practice, Practice, Practice
Lastly, make it a point to practice your moves before going in for testing. You need to know exactly what you’re going to do and how you’re going to do it to avoid getting caught. More practice means you will be more relaxed during the testing, instead of being all anxious and fidgety.
