Edward Devries (ED): Good day, readers. Our guest today is Dr. Jeffrey Wilson, an esteemed toxicologist with a wealth of experience in the drug testing industry.

His knowledge and expertise will shed light on a topic that is often shrouded in misconceptions and half-truths – drug testing procedures, specifically urine tests, and the devices people use to sneak synthetic urine to drug test.

Dr. Wilson, thank you for joining us.

Dr. Jeffrey Wilson (JW): Pleasure to be here, Edward. You’ve touched on an important issue. There’s a rising trend of individuals attempting to cheat urine drug tests by bringing fake urine to the test. The stakes are high – a job opportunity or even legal consequences could hang in the balance. Individuals must realize the risks involved in this act.

What to Expect During the Drug Test

ED: Indeed, the consequences can be severe. So, for our readers’ clarity, what should one expect from a urine drug test?

JW: Good question, Edward. The procedure is straightforward. Once you register and fill out the necessary paperwork, you’ll be asked to empty your pockets and remove unnecessary articles of clothing like jackets or hats. This is to ensure you’re not hiding any objects intended for cheating the test – like synthetic urine or adulterants. You won’t be patted down, but if the collector sees any suspicious items, they may require you to provide the urine sample under direct observation.

Next, you’ll be asked to wash your hands. This isn’t just for hygiene; it’s to remove any substances you could hide under your nails that might tamper with the sample.

After these steps, you’ll enter an enclosed restroom. You’ll collect the sample, package it, and hand it over to the collector. While they won’t watch you directly, they will be on the other side of the door, listening. These professionals have a keen ear for the sounds of urination, and anything unusual might arouse suspicion. They do this job every day, so they can easily pick up on any sounds that don’t fit the norm. It’s essential to remember they’re trained for this, and any attempt at deception may be detected.

Exploring the Types of Devices Used to Conceal Synthetic Urine During Drug Tests

ED: We’ve covered the testing procedure thoroughly. Now, can you enlighten us on the types of devices people use to sneak synthetic or substituted urine into drug tests?

JW: For observed drug tests, where someone is watching you, it’s almost impossible for males to sneak in synthetic urine. However, females sometimes utilize devices that can be hidden internally.

For unobserved or unsupervised tests, people use items like stealth belts, stash leg belts, or stash underwear to conceal a small bottle. Various companies sell such belts and underwear equipped with hidden pockets.

ED: Fascinating. And how do you typically catch people who are using these devices?

JW: The primary way we identify these cases is because the submitted urine is outside the correct temperature range. Urine samples should ideally be between 97°F and 100°F. The sample naturally cools after collection, so we legally allow for 2-4 minutes of cooling, but the sample should still be submitted between 90°F and 100°F.

People who use high-quality devices with heating pads or heat activator powder can keep the urine warm, which makes it trickier to detect. These sophisticated devices are designed to maintain the urine at body temperature, emulating a fresh sample.

ED: So, what about individuals who attempt to use someone else’s urine?

JW: Typically, such attempts fail. They may think they’re clean, even if they used cannabis weeks ago, but we regularly detect drug metabolites in these cases. Furthermore, urine spoils quickly, often before it can even be submitted, which we can identify.

Upon discovery of such an attempt, we mandate a directly observed drug test. Refusal to comply is reported and, if it’s a pre-employment drug test, it can result in job rejection.

ED: This has been insightful, Dr. Wilson. For our readers’ understanding, could you describe a device that could potentially pass through all the checks you’ve mentioned?

JW: Certainly, Edward. First, it’s crucial to understand that the quality of the urine used matters greatly. Low-quality synthetic urine can be detected during our validity checks, but high-end synthetic urine is harder to identify.

Next, any device used should be discreet. If we notice something unusual under your clothes or in your pockets, it could raise suspicion and potentially result in a directly observed drug test.

Then, the device must have a reliable method to keep the synthetic urine warm. If the temperature is outside the normal range, it’s a red flag. It’s equally important that the device allows for a reliable way to check the temperature before submitting the sample.

Finally, the device must be convenient to use, ideally with minimal noise. The drug test collector will be outside the door listening. If they hear strange sounds, it may lead to suspicion. So, any device that’s designed to help cheat a drug test should address all these factors effectively, though I must stress that attempting to cheat a drug test is illegal and fraught with serious consequences.

Devices that Help Sneak Synthetic Urine into Drug Tests

ED: Are such devices readily available in the market today?

JW: Yes, there are indeed four such devices that we’re aware of.

Incognito Belt

incognito belt

JW:The first one is the Incognito Belt. This is currently the bestselling and overall best discreet synthetic urine kit on the market. It offers a good balance between price, at $130, and product features.

Pros of the Incognito Belt include a velcro adjustable discreet belt (up to a 48″ waist), premixed high-quality synthetic urine enough for two uses, and total undetectability. It comes with detailed instructions, two heat pads to maintain temperature, and a rubber tube with a convenient clip for easy urine delivery. This product has a history of successfully passing drug tests since 2003.

On the cons, it is the second most expensive brand on the market.

As for instructions: you open up the heat pad and remove the adhesive backing. Give the heat pad a couple of good shakes to activate it. Stick the heat pad to the bladder bag, between the belt and urine pouch. Wrap the Incognito Belt™ around your waist (under all your clothing) with the temperature strip touching your skin, and the drain tube pointing to the floor. Close the white clips and cut the end of the tube off. Unfasten the white clips to drain the contents.

Urinator

urinator

JW: The second device is The Urinator. It’s another reliable discreet belt with high-quality urine. The notable feature of this device is that it uses an electronic heating element to maintain the right temperature. However, its price is quite high at $190.

The pros of The Urinator include high-quality urine included and a computerized digital controller that maintains the correct temperature and is sealed to prevent electrical shorting. The product is from a reputable company.

The cons are its high price and the necessity to practice at home, read the manual, and be comfortable with the device before using it in a testing situation.

For instructions, you use the provided syringe for the urinator and fill the bag with approximately 75 to 85 ml of warm water (for testing) or warm, clean urine if you are doing a live test. Remove as much air from the bag as possible and screw the cap back on the end of the tube. Any excess air will impede the heating of the urine. Attach the two 9-volt batteries (Duracell Brand Only), fold the insulating fabric blanket shut, and secure the Velcro ends. Once the liquid crystal temperature indicator on the bag is reading 98 to 100, you are ready to give your sample.

Stash Leg Belt

JW: Another device is the Stash Leg Belt. Essentially, it serves as an accessory to hold and conceal a bottle of synthetic urine. Made from high-quality Neoprene, it’s designed to comfortably fit around most leg sizes without sliding or slipping off.

However, the Stash Leg Belt doesn’t come with the urine itself. For that, I would suggest the Sub Solution urine kit. It includes a high-quality synthetic urine and a heat activation powder, which can heat the urine to the required temperature within seconds.

Priced at $25, this device is relatively affordable. The key selling points are its ease of use, secure bottle holding, and the reputation of the company behind it. On the flip side, the main drawback is that it doesn’t include the urine and heater.

To use this device effectively, one would need to attach the belt to the thigh, adjust it securely into place, and then place the urine bottle in the pocket. On arriving at the testing site, before going out of sight, the user should check the temperature strip, add a third of the heat activation powder, verify the temperature is within the normal range, and then put the bottle back into the pocket.

Boxers

JW: Last, we have the Stash Boxers, which are an alternative to the stash leg belt. These are ordinary-looking boxers, but with a hidden pocket for the synthetic urine bottle. The material of the boxers helps keep the urine warm for a longer time, making them suitable for unsupervised drug tests.

ED: So Dr. Wilson, if you were to draw a conclusion based on your expert analysis, which device would you say is most effective?

JW: The Incognito Belt, which includes premixed synthetic urine on a belt, stands out as the most effective in my opinion. It manages to perform at the highest level due to its reliability and ease of use.

While the Stash Leg Belt is a cost-effective alternative, the user still needs to acquire a high-quality synthetic urine kit like Sub Solution, and heating pads, which might not result in a significant saving. However, for its cost-effectiveness, and with the right handling, it can also serve the purpose well. Yet, I can’t stress enough how vital the quality of synthetic urine and proper temperature management are in these scenarios.
