I have a question for drug test. I am getting a new job and the company will have a drug test but do you think the drug test can detect poppers? urine/hair/breath.

Thank you.

They don't test on nitrites, only weed, coke and amphetamines i think, but i can be wrong?

Nitrites could show in a blood test, play safe.

Apparently according to some screening centers do test, but then again they also say that it is expelled from the body after 3 hours. go figure...so as other say it COULD

if it is a done deal would not stress about that, it looks like a big COULD only.
poppers r no big deal really,,,why would they? not likely but could if they really want

They can lower red blood cell count significantly, this could come up in a routine blood test which could trigger further tests

Poppers usually have a very short half-life in the body (the amount of time it takes to degrade by half), under a minute with total duration of up to 5 minutes. When introduced into the body, alkyl nitrites break down into nitrogen oxide (•NO) which acts as a neurotransmitter to facilitate vasodilation which is mostly responsible for the effects - they also form the parent alcohol as the primary metabolite.

If you're using isopropyl nitrite, it will not be detected as isopropyl alcohol is naturally occurring in the body, as is its oxidised product acetone. I can not say similar for isoamyl and isobutyl nitrite, but they should all be out of the body within a day of use and any tests (assuming it is even tested for) will come up clean within two at most.

Will poppers affect the reading on a breathalyzer or a ignition interlock device?

Different formulas stay in the blood stream longer. But poppers are not important in assessing your lifestyle. Even famous people have said they use them and "so what"! So any employer that tests for poppers deserves the one finger salute. I own a small business, and frankly if some of the lads in the workshop want to use poppers then I'm not complaining!

Sounds like you should familiarize yourself with the 21st Century, Ham. It is your responsibility to ensure safety in the workplace. Excuse me, but using a flammable product like poppers in a workplace! You should also consider your employees with respect, lads?? -- that, and your other idea about them using poppers, implies to me that you may be viewing them in an inappropriate way.

To answer the question: it is possible but unlikely. Testing for nitrites is really a medical issue only, actually used to test for UTI.

Amyl is metabolized quickly, and about 33% will be in the urine.

@ Sonyaangel - answer is a categorical NO

About blood cell count, what you mean is methemoglobinemia. But that is a medical condition. A co-oximeter test is not going to be able to say that this is caused by poppers.

I am not sure, never heard of such a thing. Drink lots of water and diuretic tea.

@ She Devil - thank you for being the guardian of the blue collar worker. Step down off that high horse and feel the ground beneath your feet :-)

Just wondered if poppers are classed as a performance enhancer and could turn up in any sport related testing?? thanks

"neither amyl nitrite nor ammonia are known to provide any performance-enhancing capabilities and neither is on the List of Prohibited Substances and Methods.” Maggie Durand, WADA’s manager of media relations and communications.

Not sure why you would be using poppers at a sports event. Could be fun with Turkish wrestling I guess?
