don’t get spiked – keep your drink SAFE

If you leave your drink unattended and suspect it may be spiked, then use our drink spiking test.

BE SAFE – CARRY CYD®

Please note: the speaker says it takes 90 seconds to see a result. In fact it is instant.

I was so thankful

I used a test strip in a pub in Hereford and one of the patches changed colour. I had suspected a man had spiked my drink so I was so thankful I tested my drink before drinking it.

Gratefully received

Just thought you’d like to know that we continue to hand out CYD strips on our Street Pastor patrols in Harlow and they are being gratefully received. More importantly the other night, a young woman told us that when she came back from the loo, a man she didn’t know was hovering around her drink and trying to encourage her to continue drinking. When she tested her drink with the CYD strip we had given her on a previous week, it proved positive.  We are so grateful that she has potentially avoided a serious assault.

CYD testing kits have assisted our work

In our work to target those who are committing offences in Humberside, CYD testing kits have assisted our work with licensed premises in increasing the confidence of those enjoying our night time economies. The reassurance that drinks can be immediately tested has helped to increase feelings of public safety and has been an active deterrent to those who are intent on causing harm to others.

Complete peace of mind

This product gave me complete peace of mind as I’ve read so many horror stories about drink spiking. I used one of the tests and the results were negative so I was able to relax.

She feels safer

I bought 10 packs of CYD for my niece who is going to University. She has told me that she feels safer when out and about drinking. All students should have this pack with them when out and about!

A massive thank you

Hi there, a massive thank you, a girl bought a drink to the bar saying she thought someone had put something in it, we tested and came back positive, male detained and arrested, sadly the girl is in hospital, albeit hopefully released tomorrow. Without the test kit, this guy would probably be back out next week doing it all again. Thank you.

I feel so much happier

I bought these for my 19 year old daughter and I feel so much happier knowing she has something to test her drink with when she goes to University.

HOW TO USE the DRINK SPIKING test?

DAB YOUR FINGER

Dab your finger, straw or stirrer in to the drink.

TWO DROPS

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 two independent bodies; the Clinical Trials Laboratory Services (CTLS) and the University of 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.
