How Do Your Kits Work?
-Take a tiny bit of your pill, powder or paper and place it into the provided test tube. You only need to use a small amount – about 1/10 of a blotter, a very small amount of powder, or a few crumbs scraped off of a pill. Then add 1-2 drops of the testing liquid from the bottle into the test tube and close the test tube lid. There is no need to shake or stir the mixture as long as the liquid is in contact with your substance. A chemical reaction will start immediately and the substance / liquid will change colors. Match these colors up to the chart on the inside of the jar lid as the reaction is occurring.
Does The Marquis (Basic Kit) Test For Everything?
-Although it is the most useful of any of our kits, it doesn’t cover everything. In the best case scenario you would use one or both of our additional kits to increase certainty. The Mandelin kit is an excellent choice for testing Cocaine and Ketamine and is an ideal followup test for MDMA. The Ehrlich kit is ideal for testing psychedelics like LSD, Mushrooms and DMT among others.
Do I Need More Than One Test Kit?
-Not necessarily, although it is an excellent idea to use more than one. Following up with one or more kits ALWAYS means that you can be more certain of your results.
Why Are There Three Colors For Each Substance On Your Charts?
The color on the inner ring of our charts (closest to the picture of an atom) is the immediate color reaction – right as you drop the liquid on to your sample – it can last up to five seconds. The second color out from the center (towards the substance names) is halfway through the reaction (15 seconds after the start of the test.) The third color, or outer ring on the chart is the final color in the reaction. Disregard any color change after 30 seconds.
Why Are Some Of The Colors Similar?
-Similar color reactions are very closely related substances. Follow up with a secondary test in order to increase certainty.
My Substance Reacted Extremely Fast – Does That Mean That It’s “More Pure?”
-No. If the reaction skips straight to the final color it’s recommended that you follow up with a different reagent (type of kit) to increase certainty.
Can I Test Liquids?
-Yes. Liquids should be placed on a piece of untreated paper and dried before using it in the test kit. A good way to make sure your paper is untreated is to test a plain piece of paper first to make sure it doesn’t react – if it doesn’t, then use a separate piece to put your liquid on, allow it to dry, and then test that.
Can I test gelatin or other foods?
–Geltabs, or small squares of dried gelatin containing a psychedelic such as LSD can be tested. Just place a very small amount into the test tube. Larger gelatin substances (such as a square of jello) cannot be tested. Avoid these as they are usually used to disguise adulterated substances. Sugar cubes, brownies, cookies, sweet tarts, etc., cannot be tested with the kit as they contain too much foreign material. Again, steer clear of these. They are almost always some sort of trick.
What Are The “Pebbles” Or Powder Inside The Jar My Kit Came In?
-It’s Vermiculite – a type of expanded clay that is HazMat approved to absorb our bottled chemicals if they spill for some reason. Do not remove this material. It’s a very important safety measure. Do not carry the bottle of liquid in anything other than our plastic jars – especially avoid keeping them in your pocket or bag. They may spill and melt the fabric – possibly causing burns to your skin.
Can I Re-use The Test Tube That Came In My Kit?
-Yes. We recommend washing it out with plenty of water and allowing it to dry before using it again.
How Many Tests Come In Each Kit?
-Our kits comes with 5ml of testing liquid – this can be used up to 100 times depending on how careful you are. One drop is all you need.
Do Bunk Police Test Kits Expire?
-Our products last for about one year if the bottle is kept tightly sealed, upright, out of direct sunlight and at room temperature. We manufacture them less than a week before you order – every time. You can be absolutely sure they’re fresh when you receive them from our site or amazon.com
How Can I Increase The Life Of My Kits?
-To increase the life of your kits, keep them upright in the jar that they were shipped in, do not remove the powder inside the jar as it keeps them dry. Keep them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. You can also keep test kits in your refrigerator which helps them from degrading as quickly, however, this is not necessary and will not “bring back” a kit that has already expired. If your kit is older than six months it’s good practice to test the kit to make sure it’s working, that way you insure you’re receiving the most accurate results possible.
I Think My Kit Has Expired – How Can I Test To Make Sure It’s Working?
–Marquis shows its age by slowly turning brown. A light tan color or even a little darker is OK, but you may notice that the reactions take longer if the chemical in the test kit is older / darker in color. Marquis can be tested with Aspirin. Make sure to remove any protective coating from the Aspirin pill before testing and scrape a small amount of the crumbly material into the test tube – it turns red / bright maroon when tested with Marquis. A slow reaction may indicate an aging kit.
–Mandelin should be bright yellow in its fresh state and it shows its age by turning green or possibly other colors over time. It’s very sensitive to air, so make sure that the cap is sealed tightly. Mandelin can also be tested with Aspirin. Remove any protective coating on the Aspirin pill before testing it and scrape a small amount into the test tube – it should turn green to black. A slow reaction indicates an aging kit.
–Ehrlich may change different colors with age depending on why it’s degrading (exposure to air, heat, etc.) Because the Ehrlich kit reacts with only a few substances, most of them being illegal, it’s difficult to test at the moment. We’re working on a compound to make this possible. Until then, if it’s changed to a dark color you can assume it has degraded.
A SAMPLE THAT HAS BEEN TESTED SHOULD NOT NECESSARILY BE CONSIDERED SAFE. MANY FACTORS COME INTO PLAY WHEN EXAMINING REACTIONS – INCLUDING MIXTURES OF MULITPLE SUBSTANCES AND LIGHTING. BUNK POLICE KITS ARE INTENDED FOR USE IN IDENTIFYING UNKNOWN SUBSTANCES FOR HARM REDUCTION PURPOSES ONLY.
