Mandelin reagent test (40 uses)

£9.90 inc VAT

Our single reagents are intended for experienced testers who are complementing reagents they already own.

Testing with only one reagent allows a high chance of two substances giving a similar result.

SKU: MANDEL-2ML Category:


The mandelin reagent is used for testing a number of substances but has higher toxicity and is generally made less useful by the availability of the froehde and liebermann reagents. It is offered as a specialist product- for most people we recommend getting one of the multipacks instead.

The mandelin reagent can detect the presence of PMA and PMMA, which it gives a reddish-brown reaction for.

The mandelin reagent begins life as a reddish liquid but within about 48 hours it develops a brilliant-yellow colour. This is normal and will not interfere with results.

The mandelin reagent has a relatively short shelf life and will usually not last more than 12 months in the fridge, or a bit less out of the fridge.

Please note that this product is a matrix-bound test, not a liquid.
