Check Your Drink (CYD) has pioneered an easy to use drug detection strip that tests for both GHB and Ketamine, the two most widely used drink spiking drugs.
Both the GHB test and the Ketamine test have been developed and validated for the detection of these drugs by two independent bodies; the Clinical Trials Laboratory Services (CTLS) and Homerton University Hospital in 2013. Each test has been tested against a large range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages to check for false positives.
Each pack contains 10 test strips. Simply put a drop of your drink on to each of the two test areas on a strip, and if the pink area turns blue or the yellow area turns orange, then your drink has been compromised.
Bringing a CYD pack with you on a night out could help protect you and your friends from that risk.
