Why don’t you sell Simon’s reagent? Any idea where else could I get it? 20. August 2020

We’re likely to add this in the coming weeks, hold tight!


How do I know whether the kits have passed their shelf life? 19. August 2020

See if they respond to aspirin or another substance which you know the identity of. We recommend replacing them after 12 months to be sure that they will work when you need them.

Do the kits go off outside the fridge? I plan to carry them in my luggage while I go travelling across europe. 6. January 2020

The shelf life varies for each one and even then it’s affected by humidity, temperature and oxygen exposure. Our 18*C tests reveal

  • Froehde – over 18 months,
  • Ehrlich – around 1 year,
  • Liebermann – just under 1 year,
  • Marquis – 6-9 months,
  • Mecke – 5-7 months,
  • Mandelin – 5-7 months,


Are reagent tests illegal in the UK? 13. September 2019

They are legal. Our tests use a proprietary formula which is compliant with UK laws concerning weapons. Also, you can legally buy (from abroad) and possess tests using standard formulation in your home. In public you need to have “good reason” to show that you are not planning to use them as weapons.


Is packaging discrete? 8. January 2019

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


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.
