Multi-use drug tests are practical tools for detecting admixtures in various types of psychoactive substances, both synthetic and natural such as cannabis. This helps avoid encountering highly toxic and dangerous substances. What should be emphasized – reagents can be used to identify substances, but they are not a substitute for more specialized tests for purity (TLC) to check the full number of substances and their specific concentration.
What are the advantages of reusable tests? How do they differ from disposable ones? Can the reported results be trusted? We answer these questions. Read on and find out why they are a good option!
Multi-use drug test kit
What is a multi-use drug test kit? Here we are dealing with a set of tools that allow the identification of substances to detect unwanted agents. The important part is the reagents that are necessary for identification. The exact composition of the kit varies depending on the specific type of test.
Thus, for example, the MDMA (Ecstasy) PRO Test multi-use drug test kit includes five reagents (Marquis, Mecke, Robadope, Simon’s and Zimmermann), absorbent vermiculite, a porcelain plate, a microspatula, an instruction manual with application for all tests and more than 700 substances. The Full Purity Test Kit (TLC), on the other hand, includes instructions, vials, test cards, chromatography chamber (jar), pipettes, test liquid, glass tubes, UV-C lamp and rulers for measuring % cocaine, MDMA, CBD and THC.
Everything you need to know about multi-use drug test kits
Multi-use drug test kits require samples. They can be either in powder form (so crystals, plants or tablets need to be crushed), blotter, gel or liquid. What can they detect? First of all, MDMA, LSD, 2C-B, cocaine, ketamine, DMT, THC, CBD, heroin, but also various synthetic cannabinoids, benzofurans, cathinones, opioids and others. Very important is the fact that mixtures can only be detected with reagents if the admixture causes a darker color reaction than the expected substance, so it is crucial to use kits with different reagents. In order to detect all ingredients and estimate their quantity, reagents must be paired with a TLC purity test.
Interestingly, some can be used not only for suspected synthetic substances, but also – like the Cannabis Reagent Test Kit – for marijuana, hashish or other hemp products, fresh flowers, baked goods, etc. It all depends on the capabilities of the chosen test.
How to properly use a multi-use drug test kit
Each multi-use drug test kit comes with its own instruction manual, which explains in an easy-to-understand, step-by-step manner the next steps to follow. Therefore, even someone who has never dealt with such kits before will be able to perform the test correctly. What is worth noting is that, depending on the number of reagents in the kit, this type of test can allow up to 100 tests.
Every multi-use drug test kit we offer is made professionally in every respect. You’ll find ones where the reagents are protected from light, moisture and plastic by special brown glass and high-quality polyethylene. In every situation, you are assured that the reagents – or any other items included in the kit – have not exceeded their shelf life.
Multi-use drug test kits: Comparison
What is the difference between multi-use drug test kits and single-use? In principle, their use is the same, but the main difference is simply the number of items included in the kit. With reusable ones there are – naturally – much more of them than with disposables. The amount of reagents and various measurement accessories is also higher. On the other hand, when it comes to what the drug tests detect, here both single- and multi-use ones have a similar range. The reusable ones are also available in kits, ensuring greater precision and the ability to exclude various admixtures. Among the multi-use drug tests, in addition to reagents that detect the presence of substances, there are also TLC tests that determine how many substances are in the tested material and their concentration.
Multi-use drug test kit vs single-use tests
When is a multi-use drug test kit better, and when is a single-use one? This already depends on the frequency and amount of testing. If there is a need to perform the test only occasionally, in this situation a disposable one will be more economical and practical. However, if the tests are performed frequently, in larger quantities, and you want the best precision, reusable tests are a better solution.
In our store we offer both types of tests, so you can easily find one that suits you.
Multi-use drug test: Safety and effectiveness
Although multi-use drug test kits are not a big expense, it is always good to know what you are paying for. We make sure to provide our customers with the highest quality tests possible that will give reliable results. In situations where there is a risk factor, it is mentioned in the test instructions and its description on our website. For the most part, the basic rule applies: do not allow test fluids to get near the eyes and mouth. It is recommended to use disposable gloves when performing the test.
Reading the instructions is essential because some reagents contain toxic or corrosive substances. They can be strong enough to burn skin and clothing. Therefore, it is recommended that they be used in a well-ventilated room, and storage should be in a dark, cool place. If the reagent comes into contact with the body, such an area should be immediately washed with soap and water.
How effective are multi-use drug test kits?
Multi-use drug test kits are designed to reliably detect admixtures, as well as their quantity and concentration level. A prerequisite for success and high efficiency is strict adherence to the instructions of a given test.
As many as 90% of admixtures will react strongly with one of three reagents, and 95% with one of five. That’s why if you choose a test kit from us, you can trust that the results reflect the true state of affairs.
If you want to check not only the presence, but also the quantity of substances and their concentration in the sample, combine the reagents with a TLC-type test. With TLC, you can identify the full number of components and estimate their quantity.
How to interpret the results of a multi-use drug test kit
Information on how to read the test results is provided with each test. The test will change color when the sample is added, identifying additional substances. The color varies depending on which reagent was used. For example, blue test results with the Cannabis reagent indicate a predominance of THC. However, this is just one of many examples. The tests are accompanied by an information leaflet also available in the app and in a PDF file, which you can download to your smartphone or computer and conveniently read the results using it.
Multi-use drug test kits: applications
Where will multi-use drug test kits find applications? First of all, in places related to health care, such as doctors’ offices, therapy facilities and hospitals. They also provide invaluable assistance to police and emergency medical services. They are used wherever the use of harmful substances is suspected – the test will allow their identification, which will indicate the correct course of action.
Multi-use drug test kits at work and in schools
At workplaces and schools, reusable drug tests will allow the testing of synthetic substances (such as pills) or plants from more than one person. They will be essential for identifying the potential cause of health problems that may affect a student or employee. They should be available in medical-related areas, i.e. the nurse’s office and a designated emergency room.
How does multi-use drug test kit affect society?
The use of multi-use drug test kits is a great help to medical services and anyone who wants to check the quality of purchased products. Identifying the impurities present in a substance will avoid the risk of introducing it into the body, which could equate to poisoning. Therefore, it can be said without exaggeration that they are capable of saving lives.
