Easy presumptive testing for Fentanyl and Heroin. There are many colorimetric drug test kits available and these kits are often used by law enforcement to presumptively identify heroin, fentanyl and other drugs. But, drug test kits currently on the market cannot reliably detect and differentiate heroin and fentanyl, and, usually these tests require micro grams or more of the material sample to make a presumptive identification.
Fen-Her™ has a much stronger analytical capability than other test kits on the market. False positives are reduced and largely eliminated, heroin and fentanyl are clearly differentiated, and the amount of drug required to conduct the test is far less than a micro gram. Exposure to contents is mitigated by the ability to sample trace amounts of material such as that available along the opening of a plastic bag or a surface where the drug has been in contact.
Fen-Her™ is compact, fits in a shirt pocket, has a long shelf-life and is offered by a company that has been developing test kits used by special forces and elite counter-terrorism units around the world for over ten years.
Dab or rub the suspect material or residue. Drop back into its tube and squeeze the tube. A color match indicates a positive. It couldn’t be simpler. The officer-friendly DABIT™ can even be used on residue that would otherwise be almost impossible to collect if using another type of presumptive test kit – the user doesn’t have to worry about gusts of wind either – DABIT™ holds the sample firmly in place until it can be tested. DABIT™ tests use chemicals (reagents) that comply with The National Institute of Justice, Standard—0605.00, Color Test Reagents/Kits for Preliminary Identification of Drugs of Abuse, developed by the Law Enforcement Standards Laboratory of the National Bureau of Standards.
HandyRam II™ is the latest in Raman technology that provides confident identification of narcotics in seconds using laser-based analyses. HandyRam™ fits in a pocket, is powered by a rechargeable battery, in a rugged IP67 enclosure that complies with MILSTD 810G. HandyRam II™ has screening, identification and confirmation modes of operation. Various libraries are available from Field Forensics yet the user can develop libraries with the included Nu Perspective™ software.
Fast, Easy TLC Analysis for Field and Laboratory
Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC) is ideal for rapid presumptive identification, which when used in conjunction with color tests or other field analytical methods gives the end user a lot more information about the explosive compound(s) in question.. TLC is inexpensive, practical and gives valuable chemical information including identification of compounds in a mixture and establishing the purity of a substance – forensics labs routinely use TLC for these reasons. Winner of the R&D100 Award it tests forensic samples to identify explosives, illicit drugs, insecticides on surfaces, liquids and solids with greater power than other presumptive analyses and it works in a complementary way to color tests.
