Essentially, this kit contains everything in our MDMA kit, Cocaine kit and LSD kit.
Marquis Color Reactions: MDxx: Purple to black | Speed: Orange | DXM: Grey to black (slowly) | MDPV, Methylone, Butylone: Yellow | Mephedrone: Orange/red | 2C-B: Yellow to green over 30 seconds | 2C-T-x: Orange to salmon | BZP: No color change
NOTE: The color reactions for MDMA and MDA are the same purple to black. Methamphetamine and amphetamine are the same orange. You can then use Simon’s Reagent to tell the difference between MDA and MDMA.
Simon’s Reagent (yellow and green bottles): Simon’s Reagent is a secondary test that tells the difference between MDMA and MDA. It can also differentiate amphetamine from methamphetamine. Contains two bottles.
Simon’s reagent should never be used alone. It is only useful after first testing your sample with Marquis.
If a substance tests positive for an MDx substance by turning black with Marquis, then a blue color change with Simon’s indicates the presence of MDMA (or MDE, but MDE is extremely rare) and no reaction indicates MDA.
Froehde Color Reactions: MDxx: Black | 5-APB: Purple | 6-APB: Purple | Methylone: Yellow | PMA and PMMA: Very light green
NOTE: Froehde’s most important use is in identifying 5-APB and 6-APB, which are often misrepresented as MDMA and are difficult to identify with other reagents. Froehde also turns light green in the presence of PMA and PMMA, the most deadly drugs misrepresented as MDMA. It may also be useful in identifying other new psychoactive substances.
Liebermann Reagent (pink bottle): When used in conjunction with Marquis reagent, Liebermann can help identify levamisole in cocaine. It is also useful for identifying various cathinones (“bath salts”).
Marquis Color Reactions: MDxx: Black | Mephedrone, Alpha-PVP (“Flakka”): Yellow | MDPV: Yellow to Green | Methylone, Ethylone: Yellow to Black | Butylone: Yellow/Green/Brown
NOTE: Liebermann should not be used as a stand-alone kit.
Ehrlich’s Color Reactions: LSD: Purple | 25i-NBOMe: No reaction | Other Indoles: Purple
NOTE: Ehrlic’s reagent tests for the presence of indoles. The color reaction is always purple. LSD is an indole. 25i-NBOMe is not.
IMPORTANT: Never have more than one reagent bottle open at a time. If you mix up the caps and put the wrong cap on the wrong reagent bottle, this may cross-contaminate the reagents and ruin them. Be sure to perform the tests in a well-lit location.
- Scrape a tiny bit of your pill or powder onto a white ceramic plate.
- Take the reagent bottle out of the plastic safety container.
- Remove the cap and turn the bottle upside-down a couple inches over the powder.
- Squeeze one drop out of the bottle onto the powder.
- Be careful to not let the dropper bottle touch your powder or you will contaminate the kit and ruin the entire bottle.
- Replace the cap.
- Observe the color change right away.
- Use the corresponding kits column on the DanceSafe color chart included with your kit to evaluate your test.
If the reagent either does not change any color during the first 30 seconds or if it produces some other color-change sequence, then the pill definitely does not contain any of the above substances. It may also be highly adulterated with one or more unknown substances. You can use other DanceSafe reagents on new samples to look for the presence of other substances. Wash the testing surfaces with soap and water as soon as possible.
Storage and Handling Instructions:
The DanceSafe reagents are primarily sulfuric acid with other potentially dangerous chemicals and are strong enough to burn skin and clothing. Keep out of eyes and mouth. Wear latex gloves when handling the bottle and cap. If you get some on you, then wash quickly with soap and water. Wash testing surfaces with soap and water as well. Dispose of any unwanted reagent down the sink with running water and baking soda. Store all testing kits in a cold, dark place (like your freezer) between uses.
NOTE: DanceSafe Reagents can only determine the PRESENCE, not QUANTITY or PURITY, of a particular substance. Dark color reactions will tend to override reactions to other substances also in the pill.
A positive or negative reaction for a substance does not indicate that a drug is safe. No drug use is 100% safe.
