Concerned about contaminants like fentanyl in your drugs? Want to check?
Fraser Health is offering drug checking at various locations across the region. This is a free and confidential service.
Using BTNX Fentanyl Test Strips™ individuals are able to screen their drugs for fentanyl and some fentanyl analogues.
How does it work?
Individuals are provided with a test strip. They then dilute their substance with a small amount of water and a positive or negative for fentanyl is revealed within minutes.
For more information on how to screen drugs for fentanyl please see the Fraser Health Drug Checking with Fentanyl Test Strips Pamphlet.
