Is Scott’s reagent reliable? What is Scott’s reagent? Scott reagent (also known as Scott’s reagent) is one of the most popular drug checking tests, used in particular for cocaine. It contains cobalt thiocyanate in a water solution and in the presence of cocaine (although not exclusively) shows a color change from a reddish color (without sample) […]
How does Mandelin reagent work? What is Mandelin reagent? Mandelin reagent (sometimes incorrectly called Medelin reagent or Mendelin reagent) is one of the most popular colorimetric reagent tests for identifying psychoactive compounds. Despite its popularity we have decided to discontinue it in light of several major quality concerns explained in the article below. The Mandelin […]
What are PMA, PMMA and PMEA? Para-methoxyamphetamine (PMA), para-Methoxy-N-methylamphetamine (PMMA) and PMEA share a close chemical resemblance and are a part of the amphetamine-class serotonergic drugs known to be toxic to humans. They are believed to carry significant potential for inducing harmful side effects or even fatal outcomes in cases of overdose. These are substances classified as both a stimulant and […]
LSD gel tabs (also known as windowpane) are more tricky to test than other forms of LSD such as blotters, pills or crystals, because they contain more filler (carrier) substance, and because that substance itself can cause inclonclusive results. With gel tabs the typical LSD tests (Ehrlich reagent and Hofmann) are known to cause false negatives or […]
We checked whether the Hofmann test, generally used to confirm the presence of “acid,” could be used as a reagent to test the amount of LSD. It turns out that yes, so when you buy a PRO test for identifying LSD you get a free test for quantity.
INSTRUCTIONSHow to detect meth/amphetamine mixed in MDMA? If a sample is adulterated and contains more than 1 ingredient then reagent tests usually can only indicate or rule out presence of an ingredient with the darkest color change reaction. That is because multiple reactions happening at the same time will most of the time blend together. What […]
Synthetic cannabinoids, such as MDMB-4en-PINACA, are compounds designed to mimic the effects of THC, the main psychoactive ingredient of cannabis.
REACTIONSEUTYLONE (bk-EBDB) Eutylone (also known as bk-EBDB or n-ethylbutylone) is a stimulant in the synthetic cathinones family, since 2019 often missold as MDMA. What makes it unique is that unlike most cathinones eutylone’s reagent testing results can be almost indistinguishable from the results of MDMA – to an unexperienced eye. KnowYourStuffNZ found eutylone at every […]
1P-LSD, one of novel lysergamides, is known to not react with the Ehrlich reagent within the expected time frame (minutes). Despite that, some users report that their samples do in fact turn Ehrlich reagent pink / purple.
In regard to the recent 1V-LSD release we are informing about the expected color change reactions for reagents Ehrlich, Hofmann and Marquis. Ehrlich and Hofmann’s reactions are similar like with LSD, but much slower and might only affect the sample, not the whole used reagent liquid. 1V-LSD reaction results: Ehrlich: Very slow purple (60 minutes) Hofmann: Very […]
