How it works

Cocaine, cannabis, opiates, amphetamines, methamphetamines, and ketamine are among the substance classes that the Dräeger gadget can detect. A test cassette is used for analysis, and a sanitary sample collection is used to collect saliva samples. In addition to the buffer liquid, the test cassette has a window that shows the control and test lines and two test strips. There are three simple procedures to taking the drug test itself.

Thermostatic Handheld Narcotics Analyser is an additional device that may detect drug residue from nearby objects. This portable drug detector uses lab-proven Raman spectroscopy to identify stimulants, depressants, analgesics, and hallucinogens with ease.
