The UR Code Marker

What does UR Code consist of?

UR Code offers different combinations of polyethylene glycols in the form of a liquid formulation as a urine identifier.
The individual UR Code capsules differ in the number of repetition units and are of different molecular weights and chain lengths.

What are polyethylene glycols?

Polyethylene glycols are often used in manufacturing and can be found in virtually all drug groups, including antitussive tablets that are cleared for use by children. They are also used in sedatives, relaxants, painkillers and other substances as well as an antidote to poisons for external use on the skin.
The polyethylene glycols used for the UR Code are absorbed, not metabolized and quickly cleared through the kidney. They are therefore excreted in their entirety and do not have nutritional value.

Is UR Code a drug?

No. UR Code is not considered a drug and has written FDA concurrence for its intended use: To provide a urine sample marker for the authentication and verification of the origin and identity of the sample being tested.
UR Code is not used in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease and it does not affect the structure or any function of the body.

Does UR Code have side effects?

No. Polyethylene glycols have been used for more than 50 years as a galenic basis (in order to enhance absorption) for drugs and are considered an 'inactive ingredient' by the FDA.
In over 450,000 UR Code used (OUS), no side effects have been observed or reported.

How long does it take until the UR Code is completely excreted?

Usually, UR Code is completely excreted after six to eight hours. Should the patient not urinate during that time, it may be possible to find UR Code in the urine at an even later time.

How is UR Code stored?

It may be stored at room temperature in its packaging.

What is the shelf life of UR Code?

5 years.
