How The Drink Detective Works
The Drink Detective test detects the presence of the three most commonly used drugs in drink spiking:
Each Drink Detective pack contains three complete test cards that have two test squares: the K+ and benzodiazepines test square, and the GHB test square.
The test squares change colour when the swab provided is dipped into the drink and placed on to the test square, if one of the illicit drugs is present. Test results are instant.
The K+ test (Ketamine and amine detection) that is part of the Drink Detective can also detect drugs such as amphetamine (speed), MDMA (ecstasy), cocaine and other illicit drugs that are sometimes added to drinks, because all of these drugs contain amines. Chemical amines trigger psychoactive change in the brain. Most non-psychoactive drugs and household products do not contain amines.
