How do I use fentanyl test strips? 

Step 1: Select your sample

 	White cartoon arrow points into a blue container on black background. Showcasing how to use Fentanyl test strips.

Find a container to test in (it is common to use a plastic water bottle cap). Place a small amount of the substance into the container 

Step 3: Insert Test Strip

Insert the wavy side of the test strip into the mixture for 15 seconds

Step 5: Read Results

A single pink line on the left-hand side indicates that fentanyl has been detected in your drugs.

 

It is much safer to discard the batch. 

One Line is POSITIVE

Step 2: Add water and mix

Add water to the substance and mix together

Please note: For most drugs, you need ½ teaspoon of water. If you are testing methamphetamines, use1 full teaspoon.

Step 4: Wait 2 to 5 minutes

Take the strip out of the mixture and place it on a flat surface for 2 to 5 minutes

 		Blue and white negative Fentanyl test cartoon on black background. A blue arrow shows that two lines mean a negative test.

Two pink lines indicate that fentanyl  has not been detected in your drugs.

 

Remember that no test is 100% accurate and your drugs may still contain fentanyl even if you receive a negative result. 

Two Lines are NEGATIVE
