Do you ship to Ecuador?? Are there any legal issues about it?? 8. November 2018

Please email us. Unfortunately we don’t know any of the laws in Ecuador.


Does the Fentanyl detection strip work on urine or do you dissolve the substance into water to test? 31. October 2018

They can work with any liquid which is only water, including urine or water.


How long do opened reagents last outside of the fridge? 7. October 2018

It depends on temperature, light exposure and frequency of use (this impacts how much oxygen gets in and how much moisture gets in. The moisture that gets in is affected by the humidity when the bottle is opened) so there’s no one exact answer but the reagents will still last many months. The froehde is the best and can even last more than 12 months when stored¬†out of the fridge.


Do you know if you can take reagent tests abroad (on a plane)? 10. September 2018

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 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.


which test kit is used for ketamine? 23. August 2017

Ketamine itself doesn’t give a colour change with any reagents but cutting agents do – the cocaine testing multipack is actually most suitable for this as some preservatives in vetinary ketamine give a faint orange reaction with the mandelin reagent and a faint yellow with liebermann, which is a helpful identification hint.


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.


Are reagent tests legal? 1. June 2016

We are not aware of any countries in which reagent tests are illegal. The reagents are used in laboratories for testing other common compounds so banning them would be impractical.
