The ODV NarcoPouch Mandelin Reagent (Methadone Test, 10 Pack) is a presumptive test designed to identify Methadone. Testing of suspected drugs by most crime laboratories can take several weeks. Because of this delay and with the cooperation of prosecuting attorneys, many police agencies have now turned to presumptive drug testing kits. If the results of the presumptive drug test indicate an illegal substance, criminal charges may be filed. The substance can then be sent to the crime laboratory for gas chromatography/mass spectrometry confirmation.
The ODV Test Pouches/Kit Refill Pouches consist of a heavy-duty, flexible plastic pouch which contains prefilled, hermetically sealed glass ampoules held together by a plastic harness. A drug loading device is supplied with each pouch. The glass ampoules contain a premeasured volume of the required chemicals to perform the test. Reagent shelf life is indefinite if stored out of direct sunlight and at room temperature. Tube kits are also available.
