This drug test kit uses three different chemicals mixed together to create a drug test for Ferric thiocyanate. When in the presence of Ferric thiocyanate the indicator will turn bright red. These tests simulate an actual drug test done for cyanide. Each of the four testing solutions are simulated to be similar to household drugs: cough syrup, sleep aid, mouthwash, and cold medicine.
Drug analysis is used in sports, police investigations, and by environmental scientists to test for herbicides and pesticides. Scientists who use chemistry to find evidence are called forensic analysts. Forensic analysis is an increasingly important field with many applications. Ages 14 & up.
