I’ve tested crystal mdma with your test kit but the results for mdma and MDA a very similar colour? I’m also wondering if your test would show 6-APB 13. November 2019

MDA is very, very rare in europe and has near-identical risks to MDMA. When it is sold, it is more expensive so it is sold as MDA, not passed off as something else.

6-APB is a tan powder and also more expensive than MDMA so it’s also unheard of for it to be sold as MDMA.


Do you ensure that your ‘Precision weighing scale’ is undamaged after shipping? 11. November 2019

The scales are packed in a protective box and come with a calibration weight to allow you to calibrate once you receive them. Please email us if you find any irregularities during calibration.


I have had my reagents for more than 2 years, how should I dispose of them? 17. October 2019

While wearing gloves and eye protection, start the cold tap running gently and then remove the lid of the reagent bottle and upturn it so that the contents drip into the flowing water. As soon as they are diluted, the risks are very low but it is not safe to drink or wash in the water.


Hello, I’ve been doing some research and it appears the Simons reagent is used to distinguish between MDA and MDMA. However, you dont seem to supply Simons reagent in your kits? Would appreciate any info before i buy. Many thanks :) 13. October 2019

MDA is extremely, extremely rare in europe and when it is sold it commands a higher price. This means it’s very rarely sold as MDMA.

However, the liebermann reagent can distinguish MDMA and MDA


Are testing kit illegal ? 13. September 2019

You must have “good reason” to carry these tests in public. “I am on my way home from a party where I was helping people be safe” is an acceptable reason.

Testing kits are not illegal to own. If you ever get in trouble for them please contact us and we may be willing to contribute to legal fees for you.


What kit is best to test ketamine? 1. August 2019

The Liebermann reagent is the only one that gives a truly consistent reaction with ketamine but it is a faint yellow. The mandelin reagentĀ usually goes orange with ketamine, sometimes it does not change though. The marquis reagent gives no colour change with ketamine but does react with some impostor substances like 3-MeO-PCP.

The cocaine testing multipack we offer contains all three of these.


How do I know if the bottles are inaccurate/out of date? 28. July 2019

You can test your reagents using common drugs like paracetamol, ibuprofen and aspirin. Check out the reaction results & instructions page for more information.


Can i take this on the plane? 3. June 2019

You would have to check the regulations of your airline but if you do, it is best to put them in checked luggage and make sure that the lid is on tightly and they are individually bagged as they will damage your luggage if they leak (due to the reduced pressure in the hold). They can be safely transported individually bagged in hand luggage with your other liquids, again airline regulations permitting.


How will an order show up on my bank statement? 13. April 2019

An abbreviation of the company name. No product details.


Is packaging discrete? 8. January 2019

It’s a 25mm white box with nothing but your name and address on it.


My bottle isn’t full up to the top 5. January 2019

We package our 2 mL portions of reagent into 5 mL bottles to ensure more consistent drop rate as the bottle empties. The 2mL of liquid in the bottle will still give between 30-40 tests, as advertised.


How do you dispose of old test kits? 3. March 2018

While wearing gloves and eye protection, start the cold tap running gently and then remove the lid of the reagent bottle and upturn it so that the contents drip into the flowing water. As soon as they are diluted, the risks are very low but it is not safe to drink or wash in the water.


What happens if a sample contains multiple drugs? 14. August 2017

It will produce a mixture of the colours – a lot like mixing two colours of paint. If you have a powder or crystalline substance with two different looking types of crystal, try to separate them and test them individually.


Can I send you a photo of my test result for clarification? 30. August 2016

Definitely! We love talking about testing, please email admin at reagent-tests.uk.
