Temp strip on urinalysis collection bottles

Discussion in 'Marijuana Consumption Q&A' started by jgrill246, Apr 4, 2016.

  1. How do the temperature strips on the collection bottles for urinalysis work?
    As in do they only read too cold? Or also too hot?
    I know about various methods of keeping clean urine warm but it just seems too imprecise to me. Although I have done it before. Albeit those sample bottles did not have a temp strip. And this test will involve a longer drive and an indefinite period of wait time. But lucky for me an unsupervised collection of urine! !
    I have heard about one method involving pissing in the collection cup to get the temp right then wiping it out and using the clean.
    Does that actually work? How long does it take the strip to be activated?
    Or will the clean sample cool it or throw it off?
    I plan on using clean urine that is warmed and nearly fresh so will it not be a problem?
    All these questions could probably be answered by general knowledge of these temp strips, and I'm personally clueless about them and have had a hard time finding any more info about them.
  2. I don't understand the confusion...the temp strip measures the temperature of whats in the cup, get a subbing device, or practice with warmers to get it down pat.
