Creatinine: is a waste product of creatine; an amino-acid contained in muscle tissue and found in urine. ​ A person may attempt to foil a test by drinking excessive amounts of water or diuretics such as herbal teas to “flush” the system. ​ Creatinine and specific gravity are two ways to check for dilution and flushing, which are the most common mechanisms used in an attempt to circumvent drug testing. ​ Low creatinine and specific gravity levels may indicate dilute urine. ​ The absence of creatinine (<5mg/dL) is indicative of a specimen not consistent with human urine.

Specific Gravity: ​ tests for sample dilution. ​ The normal range is from 1.003 to 1.030. ​ Values outside this range may be the result of specimen dilution or adulteration.

Nitrite: ​ tests for commonly used commercial adulterants such as Klear or Whizzies. ​ They work by oxidizing the major cannabinoid metabolite THC-COOH. Normal urine should contain no trace of nitrite. ​ Positive results generally indicate the presence of an adulterant.

Glutaraldehyde: ​ tests for the presence of an aldehyde.  ​Adulterants such as UrinAid and Clear Choice contain glutaraldehyde which may cause false negative screening results by disrupting the enzyme used in some immunoassay tests. ​ Glutaraldehyde is not normally found in urine; therefore, detection of glutaraldehyde in a urine specimen is generally an indicator of adulteration.

pH: ​ tests for the presence of acidic or alkaline adulterants in urine. ​ ​ Normal pH levels should be in the range of 4.0 to 9.0. ​ Values outside of this range may indicate the sample has been altered.

Oxidants/PCC (Pyridinium Chlorochromate): ​ tests for the presence of oxidizing agents such as bleach and hydrogen peroxide. ​ Pyridinium chlorochromate (sold under the brand name UrineLuck) is a commonly used adulterant. ​ Normal human urine should not contain oxidants or PCC.
