This provides immediate, onsite analysis for identifying the presence of the following drugs:
- Opiates (heroin, codeine)
- THC (marijuana, cannabis)
- Amphetamines (speed)
- Methamphetamine (ecstasy, MDMA)
- Benzodiazepine (Sleeping tablets/Valium)
Once a drug is shown to be present, it is referred to as 'needs-further-testing' (it is not deemed positive until confirmed by a laboratory test).
It is vital in the event of a 'needs-further-testing' result, that Australian Standard procedures (AS4308:2008) are followed regarding correct preparation of samples and 'chain of custody forms', for dispatch to a NATA accredited laboratory for further analysis. The laboratory results will quantify the level of drug/s present.
