HOW TO USE the DRINK SPIKING test?
DAB YOUR FINGER
Dab your finger, straw or stirrer in to the drink.
Put a drop on to each of the test patches on the strip.
CHECK THE COLOUR
If the pink patch turns blue, or the yellow patch turns orange then your drink has been compromised.
DRINK SPIKING IS A GROWING PROBLEM
You’re probably only one friend removed from somebody who has had their drink spiked.
IT’S NOT DIFFICULT TO SEE WHY
Every year, worldwide, thousands of people are thought to be victims of drink spiking.
HUNDREDS OF CASES REPORTED
So-called date rape drugs are used to spike a drink before a sexual assault.
THE DRUGS WE TEST FOR
Common date rape drugs are GHB (gammahydroxybutrate) and Ketamine.
If the drink contains GHB the pink patch turns blue, and if the drink contains Ketamine the yellow patch turns orange.
A QUICK BUT IMPORTANT TEST!
For peace of mind and your safety a test that takes just seconds is a must-do if you’ve left your drink unattended.
Both the GHB test and the Ketamine test have been developed and validated for the detection of these drugs by UK universities UCL and Strathclyde.
Each test has been tested against a large range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages to check for false positives. More on the history of CYD.
