Thanks for your interest in our products. The goal
of this project from the onset was to have a simple,
relatively rapid test to detect the most abused drugs
commonly being slipped into an unsuspecting victim's
drink. We knew that cost would be a major factor as
to whether the devices would be made available worldwide,
and in turn, be a useful tool in combating this crime.
Our technology to detect illicit drugs in beverages
is patent pending information, so we are unable to disclose
the exact mechanism of the reaction. Suffice to say,
it is not an enzymatic assay, but instead based upon
well-established, chemical colorimetric indicators.
With this in mind, specificity is broadened. But this
doesn't take away from the effectiveness of this product.
Whether it is a 'Date Rape' drug, or a similar enantomer,
it doesn't belong in anyone's drink. Will there be 'false
positives', possibly. But that is why the operators
of this test are directed to discard any beverage with
a positive response.
Please don't be confused. This isn't a detailed forensic
analysis of every persons drink who uses it, that's
what a gas chromatograph or HPLC is intended for. But
it may save the life of someone, somewhere who thought
they could trust that their drink was safe. It is designed
to detect what we were able to ascertain where reasonable
concentrations of drugs in solution. It is not designed
to detect micrograms per liters of solutions. Just reasonable,
potentially health threatening amounts as best determined
by speaking with local, state and federal law enforcement.
Drink Safe Technology, Version 1.2 was designed
to detect Gamma-Hydroxybutyrate (GHB) and Ketamine in
alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Organizations
with the desire and means to confirm our testing results
may do so following this protocol. Any derivation from
it will null and void all claims made by Drink Safe
Technologies, Inc. as to the effectiveness of Version
The suggested dosing is derived from forensic research
and direct communication with local, state and federal
law enforcement. This is not to say that these are the
minimum concentrations Version 1.2 can detect, but instead
it is only a typical representation of drug dosing utilized
in drug-facilitated sexual assault.
Feedback is of the utmost importance to us. Our goals
are to create future versions of this technology (i.e.
1.3, 1.4 etc.) with incorporated improvements with respect
to feedback and suggestions returned to Drink Safe Technologies,
Utilizing 3.0 grams of certified Gamma Hydroxy-butyrate
(GHB) complexed with either sodium or potassium salt
dissolved into an 8 ounce beverage.
Utilizing 1.0 grams of certified Ketamine HCl dissolved
into an 8 ounce beverage.
A ‘Safe Drinks List’ will be made available
on the Drink Safe Technologies website www.drinksafecoaster.com
As new beverages are tested and confirmed, they will
be added to this list. Please see this section for a
more detailed list.
