Identify Drugs - Suspicious Substance Drug Testing - Drug Residue Test
Do you need to Drug Test a Substance? Need to identify a Suspicious Substance that you think might be drugs?
Do you need to Drug Test a Surface? Do you suspect a Meth Lab?
Then we have what you need! Substance Drug Test Kits - Surface Drug Testing Kits
Our collection of Drug Detection & Identification Products provides law enforcement officers, investigators and private entities distinct advantages for field use. Our substance drug test - surface drug tests are first and foremost non-toxic, non-carcinogenic and will not harm the environment. In addition, they insure a testing process whish is convenient, fast and efficient. Results appear in seconds. The Identification & Detection process requires no special training and testing can be performed “on the spot.”
Easy to carry and use – no special training required!
Non toxic, no corrosive substances, no acid, no special disposal required.
With our Surface and Substance drug test kits you can choose from single and multi-drug ampoule-based field test kits for the detection and identification of illicit drugs.
For the most precise detection of drug on various surfaces or to determine if a substance is a specific drug, it is best to use both the MD-1 and MD-2 tests. See below:
What is a meth lab?
Meth can be manufactured in a
clandestine drug lab (meth lab) in a variety of indoor and
outdoor locations, including houses, apartment buildings,
motels, vehicles, wooded areas or fields. Meth is manufactured
(or “cooked”) by applying common, readily available materials to
one of several basic recipes.

Many dangerous chemical
ingredients are used to make meth. The cooking process causes
chemical residues and meth to be deposited on surfaces and
household belongings. Also, chemical by-products such as toxic
phosphine gas may be formed during meth manufacture. This may
occur through planned chemical interaction, or by processing
errors, such as increasing cooking temperatures too rapidly.
Meth cooking also produces solid and liquid wastes that can contaminate a building and its contents, or the groundwater or soil where they are dumped.
Health effects caused by exposure to meth lab chemicals depend on: (1) the lab process and chemicals used; (2) the amount of chemical and length of exposure; and (3) the age and health of the person exposed. Chemicals may enter the body by being breathed, eaten, or absorbed through the skin..
An acute exposure is one that occurs over a relatively short period of time. Acute exposure to meth lab chemicals can cause shortness of breath, cough, chest pain, dizziness, lack of coordination, chemical irritation, or burns to skin, eyes, nose and mouth. Death could result when exposure is to a particularly toxic chemical or the person exposed is particularly vulnerable. Acute exposures can occur in non-drug users during or immediately after ‘cooking’.Less severe exposures can result in symptoms such as headache, nausea, dizziness, and fatigue or lethargy. These symptoms have been known to occur in people exposed to active labs, but also in people ---particularly law enforcement personnel and other first responders --- who have entered a drug lab before the site has been cleaned or ventilated. These less-severe symptoms usually go away after several hours of exposure to fresh air.
Exposures to lab chemicals or byproducts over a long period of time - called chronic exposures - may cause both long-term and short-term health effects. Long-term exposures to VOCs may result in liver and kidney damage, neurological problems, and increased risk of cancer. Even at low levels, exposures for long periods by people living in a former lab site could result in serious health effects.
Clues that may indicate illegal production or sales of drugs, including meth, are::
An individual who believes he or she has discovered an illegal drug lab or the site of an abandoned lab should immediately notify local law enforcement (Dial 911) and should not enter the area of the suspected lab. Anyone who inadvertently enters a lab should back out immediately without disturbing the cooking process, chemicals or equipment..
Contact your local law enforcement and the local city or county public health agency. Depending on the severity of contamination, the type of site and the individuals involved, one or more of the following agencies may need to be involved in investigation, evaluation, sampling or remediation of the site:
Officers responding to a drug lab call may also decide to notify one or more of the following:
