or dip test pad in small portion of milk from a pumped sample collected in a clean, dry container.
Tap excess breast milk off test pad. Wait exactly 2 minutes.
Positive: The test will produce a color change in the presence of alcohol in breast milk. The results will show the concentration of alcohol in milk in a scale from 0.02% to 0.30%. This is represented by the intensity of the blue color which ranges from light blue (0.02%) to dark blue (0.30%). Please, use the provided scale for more detailed reference. The test may produce colors that appear to be between adjacent color examples.
Negative: When the test shows no color change this should be interpreted as a negative result indicating that alcohol has not been detected.
