Currently, our tests are sold only through this Website to individuals residing in the United States. We offer a starter kit, which includes five single-use tests, four free holders to easily carry the tests, and free 1-3 day shipping for $34.99. We also offer a refill pack, which includes ten single-use tests and free 1-3 day shipping for $49.99.

Our test is small enough to fit in a pocket. Additionally, we created holders as an easy way to attach the test to items you typically carry with you--keys and phones!

Our test screens for common date rape drugs, including widely recognized names such as Flunitrazepam (“Roofies”), Alprazolam (Xanax) and Diazepam (Valium), as well as Midazolam (Versed), Oxazepam (Serax), and Temazepam (Restoril). We’re continuing to evolve our science and will update this list as new drugs are added to the test.

Our test doesn’t work in hot beverages, such as coffee and tea, due to the high temperature of the liquid.

On average, we’ve found that our test can detect as little as 1/4 of the minimum dose of the common date rape drugs that we test for.

To provide quality assurance, we routinely test our products in-house as well as through a third party. We have tested over 8500 medallions in a variety of conditions and over a thousand of those tests have been conducted by third party independent laboratory. To date, our testing has achieved a 99.1% accuracy rate. Our tests are run under ideal conditions, and we understand that your use is likely “in the field.” As such, results may vary.

Our science is one of the many tools that can help reduce the risk of drug-facilitated sexual assault and only you can know if and when it feels right to use it. Here are few tips from RAINN on how to increase your safety in situations where drinking might be involved.

• Know what you’re drinking
• Don’t leave your drink unattended
• Don’t accept drinks from people you don’t know

Our test is easy to use. Please visit “How it Works” for step-by-step instructions, or refer to the “Instructions for Use” included with your purchase.

Results will start to appear in as little as 30 seconds with full development at three minutes.  

If two lines show up in the results window, our test did not detect any of the date rape drugs that we test for. It’s important to note that a “good” result may not necessarily indicate a drug-free beverage. A “good” result can be obtained if the drug is below the cutoff level, or if it is a drug that this product does not test for.

It doesn’t matter if the two lines in the results window are different shades of pink as the intensity of the color can vary based on the liquids being tested.

Our test is here to inform you. A “good” result indicates that the most commonly used date rape drugs that we test for are not present in your beverage. While our test has achieved good accuracy rates during testing, there are a number of variables that could affect the test. Therefore, if you have a feeling that your drink has been tampered with even after testing it and receiving a “good” result, we recommend trusting your instincts and discarding the beverage.

If a single line shows up on your test, that means your drink contains at least one of the drugs we test for. Immediately stop drinking your drink, discard the drink, and seek out a friend or someone that you trust so you’re not alone. You may also wish to seek medical attention. For additional resources and support, please call the National Sexual Assault Hotline 800.656.HOPE (4673) or visit RAINN.org.

If no lines appear, the test may be invalid or you may not have applied enough liquid. Apply an additional sample to the sample port. If no lines develop and/or are incomplete, the result is invalid. Review the procedure and repeat the test with a new test or discard the beverage.

We always recommend trusting your instincts and knowing the warning signs. According to RAINN, the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization, common symptoms of drugging include nausea, difficulty breathing, feeling drunk when you haven’t had any alcohol or a very little amount, loss of bladder or bowel control, sudden body temperature change, disorientation, dizziness or blurred vision, waking up with no memory or missing large fragments of memory. If you experience any of these, we recommend seeking medical attention.

No. Each test is for one-time use only and should be discarded after use.

Store as packaged in the sealed pouch in a cool dry space 36-86 degrees fahrenheit until ready for use. When removed from the foil pouch, do not puncture or remove the protective layer until you’re ready to test the beverage.

The shelf life of the test is one year from the date of manufacture when sealed in the foil pouch. Once removed from the pouch, the shelf life is 90 days. Do not use after the expiration date.

If you or anyone you know is a victim of sexual violence and needs support, please have them contact the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 800.656.HOPE (4673) or visit RAINN.org.
