Our 9 Panel Drug Test Has Changed
We wanted to inform you that a small change has been made to the 9 panel drug test we offer. The drug Mephedrone has been replaced with the drug Ketamine.
This is due to Ketamine now being more commonly used than Mephedrone. In recent years the use of ketamine has fluctuated, and for adults aged 16 to 59 years the prevalence of use increased from 0.5% in the year ending March 2010 to 0.8% in the year ending March 2020.
Use among adults aged 16 to 24 years has also increased over the same period from 1.7% to 3.2%. This was the highest estimate of reported ketamine use in the last year recorded by the Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW).
There are many reasons why some substances become more commonly used while others dwindle; availability, price, awareness and fashion all have a role in this.
Our new 9 drug panel is as follows:
- Amphetamine – (Amphetamine)
- Methamphetamines – (Ecstasy / MDMA)
- Benzodiazepines – (Valium)
- Cocaine – (Crack Cocaine (Anhydroecgonine)
- Opiates – (Heroin)
- Methadone – (Heroin substitute)
- Ketamine – (Special K)
- Tramadol – (Strong Pain Killer)
