The PharmChek® Overlay is made of the same polyurethane film as the PharmChek® Sweat Patch and can be used to extend the wear time of the PharmChek® Sweat patch.
Who May Need to Wear the PharmChek® Overlay?
Difficulty wearing the patch is most common with:
- Individuals who exercise heavily.
- Individuals who perform strenuous labor.
- Individuals who live in hot, humid climates.
These individuals may produce a large amount of sweat very quickly. Occasionally, the sweat cannot evaporate through the film fast enough, which may cause the adhesive to loosen. The Overlay’s construction allows a larger surface area for excess sweat to be reabsorbed by the body.
Excerpt US v. Stumpf Decision
"...For the foregoing reasons, this Court finds by a preponderance of the evidence that the PharmChem sweat patch drug testing device is a reliable scientific method for testing for the presence of controlled substances, including methamphetamine, as it was utilized during the periods in question."
