BE SAFE – CARRY CYD®
A QUICK BUT IMPORTANT TEST!
For peace of mind and your safety a test that takes just seconds is a must-do if you’ve left your drink unattended.
Both the GHB test and the Ketamine test have been developed and validated for the detection of these drugs by two independent bodies: the Clinical Trials Laboratory Services (CTLS) and the University of Strathclyde.
Each test has been tested against a large range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages to check for false positives. More on the history of CYD.
HOW TO USE THE DRINK SPIKING TEST?
DAB YOUR FINGER
Dab your finger, straw or stirrer into the drink.
Put a drop on to each of the test patches on the strip.
CHECK THE COLOR
If the pink patch turns blue, or the yellow patch turns orange then your drink has been compromised.
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I THINK MY DRINK HAS BEEN SPIKED?
Whatever you do, do not ignore your situation because you feel embarrassed. If you are still able, test your drink with the Check your Drink drink spiking test.
These strips analyze your drinks and give a clear indication if it has been spiked with GHB or Ketamine.
Both the GHB test and the Ketamine test have been developed and validated for the detection of these drugs by two independent bodies; a private laboratory and a UK university. Each test has been tested against a large range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages to check for false positives.If you can, try and keep your drink with you. This could be used as evidence by the police..
Tell someone you completely trust, such as:
-A trusted friend or relative
-A pub landlord/ landlady or a pub or bar manager
-A medical professional.
If you’re not with anyone, call someone you trust and get to a safe place. Ask to use a phone if yours has been stolen. Be wary of accepting help from a stranger and don’t leave with someone you don’t know.Call THE LOCAL EMERGENCY NUMBER: 112 or someone you trust should take you to the hospital. Tell the medical staff that you think your drink has been spiked. Arrange for a trusted friend or relative to take you home and stay with you until the drugs have fully left your system. Report it to the police as soon as you can. They will need to take blood and urine samples. Most drugs leave the body within 72 hours of being taken (the date rape drug GHB leaves the body within 12 hours), so it’s important to be tested as soon as possible.
If you are abroad, get help from a travel representative, local medical services or ask a bar or hotel manager to call local police.
