Q: How accurate are your drug-testing products?

Answer: They are accurate within the context of the SAMHSA table below.

Q: If I receive a positive drug test result, what should I do?

Answer: Confirm that it is indeed positive through a forensic laboratory test.

Q: Is the testing of drugs with the NH2 or THC really that simple?

Answer: Yes, it is. The NH2 and THC are small, credit card sized tests that are easy to take anywhere; simple to use; and produce virtually instant results.

Q: What are the cut-off levels for drugs in your tests?

Answer: Our tests have the following SAMHSA industry-standard cutoff levels:

Drug Name Symbol Nanograms/ml
Marijuana THC 50 ng/ml
Cocaine COC 300 ng/ml
Phencyclidine PCP 25 ng/ml
Opiates OPI 2000 ng/ml
Morphine MOP 300 ng/ml
Amphetamines AMP 1000ng/ml
Methamphetamines mAMP 1000 ng/ml
Barbiturates BAR 300 ng/ml
Benzodiazepines BZO 300 ng/ml
Methadone MTD 300 ng/ml
Tricyclic Antidepressants TCA 30 ng/ml
Buprenorphine BUP  10ng/ml
Ecstacy MDMA 500ng/ml
Propoxyphene PPX 300ng/ml
Oxycodone OXY 100ng/ml

Q: What do you mean by a ‘swab’ drug test?

Answer: A swab drug test is a diagnostic test that uses a swab on any given surface to very quickly provide a positive or negative result as to the presence of A-class drugs.

Q: Which drugs can be found with your tests?


The NH2 can rapidly detect the presence of all illicit substances that are based on chemical amines. Most psychoactive substances (and hence most illegal drugs) contain amines. Here is a list of the most common drugs that the NH2 can detect:

  • Amphetamines (AMP)
  • Barbiturates (BAR)
  • Benzodiazepines (BZO)
  • Buprenorphine(BUP)
  • Cocaine (COC)
  • Ecstacy (MDMA)
  • Marijuana (THC)
  • Methamphetamines (mAMP)
  • Methadone (MTD)
  • Morphine (MOP)
  • Phencyclidine (PCP)
  • Propoxyphene (PPX)
  • Opiates (OPI)
  • Oxycodone (OXY)
  • Trycyclic Antidepressants (TCA)

The THC colorimetric test instantly detects all cannabinoids from the plant Cannabis sativa, including:

  • Cannabis resin
  • Lebanese gold
  • Marijuana
  • THC oil

The Drink Detective test detects the presence of the three most commonly used drugs in drink spiking:

  • Ketamine – also know as Special K, K, Ket
  • Rohypnol & other Benzodiazepines – including diazepam such as Vallium
  • GHB – gamma-Hydroxybutyric acid

It can also detect drugs such as amphetamine (speed), MDMA (ecstasy), cocaine and other illicit drugs that are sometimes added to drinks, if these drugs contain amines.

Q: Why should I use a swab drug test?
Answer: A swab test is safe, easy to perform and reduces the risk of cross-contamination. The results are almost instantaneous. A swab drug test is small and easily carried around. Due to its size, it is very discrete which makes it useful in a variety of situations such as in the home, school, place of work, pre-employment, after accidents, and random testing for drugs.

Q: Will substances that I use regularly result in a positive test?

Answer: If they contain amines, they will. However, most over-the-counter drugs do not contain amines.


Q: Can one test be used for all the possible drugs of abuse?

Answer: Yes, it can, provided the drugs contain Amines. We have a separate test that detects cannabinoids: the THC.

Q: How do your swab drug tests work?

Answer: Swab drug tests detect the presence of drugs containing amines on any surface, in seconds. When a detection strip is touched with a test specimen, it reacts with the reagents on the strip and produces a color reading so you can interpret a positive or negative result.

Q: If a drug test shows positive, can it be proved how long ago the drug was taken?

Answer: Our drug tests are only designed to indicate the presence of drugs on any surface. They are not designed for invasive detection such as in urine, blood or saliva. Forensic research is required to determine how long ago a drug has been ingested.


Q: What is the shelf life of your drug testing products?

Answer: The swab drug test products have a shelf life of at least two years from their manufacturing date. The expiration date is on every individual pack. Do not use beyond this date.
