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.
The drug checking utilizes BTNX Fentanyl Test Strips™ that enables individuals to check their drugs for contaminants like fentanyl.
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.
Drug checking for all chemicals
The Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectrometer (FTIR) machine can identify multiple ingredients, including cutting agents. Starting August 11, 2020, drug checking with the Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectrometer (FTIR) Drug Checking will be offered via drop-off at Safepoint any time. Samples will be run through the machine by the technician Tuesday mornings and results will be available Tuesday afternoon. Samples need to be at least 3mg and cannot be returned.
