PCP Panel: Specifications

Specificity - PCP Drug Test Panel

The following compounds are detected positive in urine by the PCP One Step Phencyclidine Drug Test at 5 minutes. Cutoff represents the concentration of each compound required to yield a positive reading. A lower cutoff indicates a greater ability to detect the compound.

Compound Description / Synonyms / Common Names Cutoff
Phencyclidine PCP, 1-(1-Phenylcyclohexyl)piperidine, Fenciclidina / Angel's dust, Wet 25
4-Hydroxy-phencyclidine Phencyclidine metabolite / PCHP, 1-(1-Phenylcyclohexyl)-4-hydroxypiperidine 12,500

Phencyclidine - Definition and Description

Phencyclidine (PCP) can be classified as an anesthetic, a dissociative, or a hallucinogen, and is known for its potentially unpredictable and dramatic effects. PCP can act as a CNS depressant, a CNS stimulant, or a PNS stimulant, resulting in a very wide range of possible effects. These effects can vary from person to person, and from dose to dose. Effects sought after by PCP users might include sedation, euphoria, loss of inhibitions, analgesia, anesthesia, and dissociation. As dose size increases, the potential for negative side effects increases, including but not limited to overheating, hypertension, rapid eye movements, rapid or irregular heartbeat or breathing, muscle spasms, psychosis, paranoia, schizophrenia, catatonia, body contortioning, convulsions, unresponsiveness to deep pain, violence, hallucinations, and coma. Due to PCP's unique combination of analgesic and dissociative effects, self-inflicted injury can occur, for instance walking into traffic or self-laceration. [1]

In its pure form, PCP is a white, crystalline powder. Less pure forms range from yellowish-tan to brown and can have a sticky consistency. In years past, PCP, particularly its powder form, was referred to as angel's dust. Today's street PCP is typically sold in a clear to yellow-hued liquid form, commonly known as the slang wet. This form of PCP might be smoked after being applied to marijuana, tobacco, or the leaves of herbs, such as mint. Less commonly, it can be injected. [1] A popular method for smoking PCP involves dipping the tip of a cigarette into a vial of liquid PCP, then allowing the cigarette to dry. This is referred to as dipping and the final product is known as a dipper.

Summary - PCP Phencyclidine Urine Test Panel

Phencyclidine (PCP) is the target compound for the PCP One Step Phencyclidine Drug Test, detected at a cutoff level of 25 ng/mL. Approximately 4–19% of a PCP dose is recovered in the urine as unchanged PCP (phencyclidine), with 25–30% recovered as conjugated metabolites. Renal clearance of PCP is increased significantly with acidification of the urine (lower pH value). [2]
