Using frozen human urine for drug tests
Frozen urine is real human, frozen for freshness.
As you probably know, drug tests are quite commonplace these days and quite a few of them involve testing a person's urine. Frozen urine is human urine taken from donors who abstain from substances that can cause a positive drug test and is frozen to preserve freshness. In short, it ensures that the sample you provide will come up clean.
Although we do not recommend waiting until the last minute to order frozen urine, if you receive frozen urine a day or two before the test, there's no need to keep it frozen... it's ready to go for the test.
Storing frozen urine
In theory, urine can be stored indefinitely in a frozen state. In practice, we don't recommend keeping frozen urine for more than a year. While policies related to urine freshness vary by vendor, we warrant our urine for 30 days from date of purchase. The sooner you store the sample, the longer it's likely to remain fresh.
Many vendors supply additional items with urine samples. Make sure that you correctly identify the urine sample (we supply ours in a clear IV bag) and ONLY keep this item frozen. Other items commonly include heating element(s) and temperature indicator(s). These items should NOT be frozen and should remain in a cool, protected environment, like you would store medicine.
What to do for the urine test
When you know a test is coming up, dethaw the urine sample. There are a few ways to accomplish this, depending upon how urgently you need the urine. For best results, thaw the urine in the fridge for 24 hours or more before you need it. If you need the sample sooner, you can thaw it under running water.
Once your sample is thawed, find the heating element that came with your purchase. This is often a chemically activated element good for a single use. Follow the instructions for activating the heating element and use it to heat your urine sample to body temperature.
To ensure your sample is the proper temperature, we include a temperature strip. Adhere the temperature strip to the urine sample container (e.g. IV bag) farthest from the heating element. Body temperature is 98.6 fahrenheit or 37 degrees celcius. Once your urine sample has reached this temperature, it's time to provide the sample.
Vendors have different ways to hide the substitute urine sample. After more than 20 years in the business, our combination of IV bag, velcro strip, and tube clamps has stood the test of time. It is the most flexible, as it works for both men and women. The tubing is very discrete and can work under even close observation. While you can rely on the pressure of the velcro strip to push urine out of the IV bag or by squeezing your legs together, you should ideally mount the IV bag to your body above the exit tube so that gravity feeds the urine through the tube. Before the test, try different placements of IV bag and tubing to find the most comfortable position. You can also use surgical tape to ensure the tubing remains in place.
