The system employs a specially designed plastic specimen cup with a lid that contains urinalysis strips. A plunger transfers the required amount of urine onto the strips; the reader then uses optical technology to determine whether results are negative, a process that takes 2 to 8 minutes. Questionable samples are forwarded for conventional laboratory testing.
