5 panel urine drug testing kit for legal highs NPS
Until recently drug testing for “Legal Highs” has not been possible however this year the drug test manufacturers have produced a range of new drug test membranes to cater for an increasing desire to be able to screen for the this very common group of new drugs known as “legal highs” or New Psychoactive substances ( NPS )
Gradually the range of new drugs that we can test for will increase as the drug test kit manufacturers catch up with the drug manufacturers.
The drug testing kits are 97% accurate when compared to a lab GCMS urine drug test and give results in minutes. They are available to buy online with next day UK delivery from UK Drug Testing.
If you are screening in a workplace setting all non negative results (positives ) will need to be confirmed with a laboratory chain of custody urine drug test for the specific drug that was detected. The lab drug test will cost about £40 plus VAT per drug.

It has been reported this week in the press that ketamine use is higher in the UK than elsewhere in Europe.
Statistics from the National Drug Treatment Monitoring System show that the number of people getting treated for ketamine related health issues has doubled in the last 5 years.
What is ketamine ?
Originally a powerful veterinary anaesthetic developed in 1962 Ketamine has been around as a drug of abuse for about 10-15 years, but it is only in the last 3-4 years that we have started to see an increase in its abuse.
Ketamine is an illegal class B drug of abuse . It was upgraded from class C earlier this year.
As well as the immediate anaesthetic effects of the drug which are often described as giving an ‘out of body experience’ or in some cases a ‘near death experience’, ketamine use can cause long term problems including serious bladder & kidney problems.
Ketamine has also been used as a date rape drug by spiking drinks.
There are many street names for ketamine including Ket, K and Special K. Are there drug testing kits for ketamine ?
Ketamine is a drug which historically was used as a veterinary anaesthetic. it is both sedative and an analgesic (pain relief). In humans it can also induce hallucinations.
Ketamine first appeared as a drug of abuse over 40 years ago and grew in popularity, particularly as a club drug and rave drug. Ketamine has been mixed with MDMA and has even been miss sold as Ecstasy. Dependance is more common than with Ecstasy as Ketamine is more sedative. Ketamine is a class C substance in the UK.
A urine drug test kit for ketamine is available. However the relative short half life has made detection problematic. Screening is also hampered by a variety of pills
Ketamine, originally an animal tranquiliser, has been around since the 1960’s but over the last 10 years or so there has been a steady increase in the recreational misuse of the drug Ketamine in the UK, particularly among the young in which it has become one of a group of drugs referred to as ‘club drugs’ and as a result it is increasingley been requested on drug testing kits. The street price of Ketamine has also come down, which may have helped to increase its popularity amongst drug users.
The government recently ordered a review of Ketamine currently classified as a class c drug because of its increasing misuse and also the serious adverse effects & increasing number of deaths that have been linked to ketamine misuse.
