Fentanyl Test Strips
Fentanyl test strips can identify the presence of fentanyl in unregulated drugs. They can be used to test injectable drugs, powders, and pills. There are many different fentanyl-like drugs and it’s hard to tell the difference between them all by just taste, smell, color, or feel. Fentanyl test strips are easy to use tests to see if your drugs have some types of fentanyl in them.
Use the strips as directed for the best results. When you get your result, you can make the decision about what to do next.
Being aware of the presence off fentanyl allows people to use appropriate harm reduction strategies to reduce the risk of an overdose.
