How to Test Cocaine
LEVEL 1 – BASIC EVALUATION
Testing with just one or two spot kits for basic adulterant detection
Due to the rising prevalence of the highly dangerous synthetic opioid, fentanyl, appearing in cocaine samples—if you can only purchase one kit—we recommend our FentKits as an absolute necessity. This ensures fentanyl and its analogs are not present in your sample. A close second place for usefulness is our Morris Spot Test Kit, which is capable of positively identifying cocaine, as well as detecting a wide range of cutting agents, including PCP, 2-OXO-PCE, 3-MeO-PCP, 3-CI-PC, 3-MeO-PCE, O-PCE, MXPr, MXE, EPE, and DPD.
LEVEL 2 – COMPREHENSIVE EVALUATION (RECOMMENDED)
Testing with our recommended, substance-specific packages for a thorough evaluation
For comprehensive, accurate drug identification, detection of cutting agents, as well testing for the presence of fentanyl, we recommend our Cocaine Spot Kit Package. In comparison to using just one spot kit, this package provides much more certainty when verifying a substance’s contents. This package includes ten FentKits, as well as the Morris, Marquis, Mecke, and Liebermann spot kits. Additionally, purchasing the package is more affordable than purchasing each spot kit individually.
Morris is capable of positively identifying cocaine, as well as detecting dangerous adulterants, including PCP, 2-OXO-PCE, 3-MeO-PCP, 3-CI-PC, 3-MeO-PCE, O-PCE, MXPr, MXE, EPE, and DPD.
Marquis and Mecke are both used to detect cathinones (bath salts), 4F-aPVP, Adderall, 2-FA, 2-FMA, methamphetamine, a-PVP, lidocaine, a-PHP, a-PVT, 4-FMA, and other adulterants.
Liebermann checks for cathinones (bath salts), 4-EMC, methylphenidate, a-PPP, 4-BMC, 4-MEC, ephedrine, 2-FA, 2-FMA, levamisole, methamphetamine, amphetamine, a-PVP, a-PHP, mexedrone, pentedrone, a-PVT, and 4-FMA, 4F-aPVP, and 3-MMC, among others.
Confirming results with a second and third test kit is highly recommended, because it provides more accuracy when verifying a substance’s contents, and can even reveal the presence of otherwise hidden adulterants.
