Drug residue test.

With the advent of new testing technologies, it’s now feasible to detect and identify trace or residual substances for many illicit or prescription drugs. By using a residual drug test you can identify unknown substances within a few minutes by comparing the enclosed chart with your result. They are used by thousands of people to combat abuse in the home, the workplace, airports and the DEA.

The tests shown below rely on colorimetric technology that uses a specially formulated paper combined with a liquid. It requires that you rub the special paper over the suspect area, then add a few drops of the liquid. The result appears as a color on the paper. This color is then compared to the enclosed chart to identify the substance.

How do I know if I detected an illicit substance with a Drug Residue test?

The images below are results from two tests from the two test papers included in the kits. They have identified Marijuana and Cocaine. The test paper changes color as soon as a few drops of the chemical liquid is applied. The enclosed instructions show how different substances produce different colors to highlight the drug found.
