enzyme-multiplied immunoassay technique
The test uses antibodies that react only with the particular drug for which the sample is being tested. The antibodies attach themselves to the drug if it is present in the sample. It is not designed to measure amounts of the drug present, only to detect its presence or absence.
It is used predominantly, but not exclusively, for the detection of drugs of abuse in the urine.
