Test strips for xylazine
We are introducing xylazine test strips. These test strips are similar to fentanyl tests and, like them, can be particularly useful for opioid users. Drug tests for xylazine are extremely sensitive. The manufacturer claims sensitivity even at 500 nanograms per milliliter. Below is a photo of an experiment in which we tested 20 micrograms per milliliter, the results were unmistakable.

What is xylazine?
Xylazine (“tranq”) is a synthetic substance generally used to sedate and anesthetize animals. It is characterized by potent effects and a low lethal dose. It is more and more often found in mixtures with fentanyl and heroin greatly, increasing the risk of a fatal overdose. When xylazine is mixed with fentanyl, heroin or other substances it is never mixed evenly. The powder on one side of the bag may contain no xylazine while the powder on the other side may contain a lethal amount. It is extremely important to always test each dose intended for consumption.
A positive or negative test result does not indicate if the substance is safe. No substance is 100% safe.
