NicCheck Is Used Again In The Quit To Win Challenge In Quebec

Milford, Massachusetts 7/29/19- Mossman Associates Incorporated is pleased to announce that once again NicCheck has been chosen to be the confirmation test to determine the winner of the ‘’Quit To Win Challenge’’ in Quebec.

Sophie Maisonneuve of Charg√©e de projets, Campagnes Soci√©tales at Capsana writes, “ As we do every year, we would like to acknowledge your ongoing help and support for the testing of our Quit to Win Challenge winners over many years using the NicCheck Nicotine test Strips.

This provincial smoking cessation campaign is now more than 20 years old and along with other government initiatives has helped to reduce smoking statistics from about 30% in the year 2000 to 18.3% in 2017.

In 2019, over 14,000 Quebecers registered for the Challenge of which almost 6,000 in the 35-49 years old age group (an increase of 24% over 2018).

Of those who registered for the 2019 edition of the campaign, 66% were female and 34% male.

Our statistics indicate that 60% of those registered succeed the 6-week challenge.  As we have done in past years, Capsana uses the NicCheck test to confirm our main Challenge winners.  We are very appreciative of the help and support you have provided once again for our 2019 campaign.

As always we are proud to be a part of these types of contests”, quotes Donald Mossman, President/CEO of Mossman Associates. 

He continues, “These Quit and Win competitions held in countries like Romania, Canada, and Taiwan are instrumental in helping people break the smoking habit.  We will continue to work with these countries, and organizations as we have over these many years”.

NicCheck is a dry chemistry dipstick for the semi-quantitative measurement of nicotine and nicotine metabolites in urine as an aid in the verification of a person’s true smoking status. This 15 minute test yields a semi-quantitative measurement of a person’s nicotine consumption based on the color intensity of the reaction found on the NicCheck test strips.
