A number of studies have shown the effects of passive smoke on the respiratory, circulatory, and immune systems of children and adults. In order to be able to correlate the health status of individuals specifically with exposure to tobacco smoke, it has become important to have an assay capable of detecting nanogram amounts of cotinine, the major metabolite of nicotine. Cotinine in body fluids has been identified as a reliable indicator of exposure to second hand smoke.
For the determination of trace quantities of cotinine in human urine, blood or oral fluid. This kit was designed for screening purposes and is intended for forensic use only. Contact a Neogen representative for information on other matrices.
