It is now basically illegal to sell (over the Internet) most, but not all, reagents in the UK due to the 2019 Law & because the main reagent has been listed as an explosives precursor.

There is NO minimum amount/quantity regarding this Law so single-test kits (EZ-Test) are as illegal as multi-drop test kits to sell over the Internet in MOST (~95%) cases.

Please see below for the only reagents which can be purchased under this very restrictive law regarding corrosive products.

Offensive Weapons Act 2019 (came into UK Law May 2019)

Here are some key points of the new UK Law:

The seller commits an offense if, for the purposes of supplying the corrosive product to the buyer, the seller delivers the product, or arranges for its delivery, to residential premises or locker (FULL ID check of RECIPIENT is required at time of DELIVERY), or to someone under the age of 18 (Full ID check required)

 

A corrosive product is ANY Reagent (for these types of tests) containing concentrated sulphuric acid (15% w/w), or other specified acids (as per schedule 1 of the Offensive Weapons Act 2019).

As over 95% of these test reagents contain over 90% w/w concentrated acids, purchaser identification (proof of age) would be required before the order could be accepted as well as proof of age at time of receipt of delivery. However, as 98% of these orders would be sent to a residential address, or locker, they would still be breaching the law.

There would appear to be no realistic way of providing most of these products legally due to the residential address & "locker" restriction.

 

Also, you must be made aware that it is an offense to carry (be in possession of) such reagents in public place without "good reason" which could be difficult to explain.

 

The sentence for any of the above is imprisonment (jail) for a term not exceeding 51 weeks, a fine, or both.

The ONLY reagents that fall outside these UK Laws that are for general sale are:

 

  • Simon’s (+ buffer) for MDxx, Speed (amphetamine), methamphetamine, Mephedrone, PMA, PMMA etc (100+ substance responses)

  • Robatest (+ buffer) for MDxx, Speed (amphetamine), methamphetamine, Mephedrone, PMA, PMMA etc (60+ substance responses)

  • Ehrlich Reagent for LSD & other psychoactive substances (> 30) as well others, Procaine & Benzocaine (70+ substance responses)

  • Zimmermann (A+B) test a-PVP, MDPV, mephedrone or other cathinones and for testing Benzos (40+ substances)

  • Scott Reagent for Cocaine, Lidocaine, Levamisole, but it’s also a good test for a-PVP, MDPV and derivatives. (70+ substance responses)

  • Fentanyl Test

 

We do have a few other non-corrosive reagent tests other than those listed above.

 

These are the only test reagents we can sell which comply with Offensive Weapons Act 2019 which means we cannot be prosecuted and neither can you for possession etc.

 

Fortunately, all the above reagents, when used as a single kit, can give a good level of testing particularly for key substances, partly due to a particular characteristic they all have in comparison with the original Reagents of Mecke, Marquis, Mandelin, Froehde, Liebermann (all illegal now (UK) to the general public to carry in a public place without "good reason" etc which would be a can of worms!), However, as the

the main chemical in the original reagents is an explosive precursor and in high concentration, it is illegal to receive or be in possession without an EPP Licence (See Home Office government website for more info).

 

These are the only single test / multi-drop Reagents which are legal now:

Robatest (Robedope) Reagent

Simon's Reagent

Ehrlich Reagent

Scott Reagent

Zimmermann Reagent

Note: All products are sent First Class Royal Mail either same day or next working day

Fentanyl Test strips

Marquis Reagent, Zimmermann Reagent

Fentanyl is a synthetic opiate drug which is a powerful painkiller and tranquilizer. It is one of the strongest opiate drugs on the market – it is 50 times stronger than heroin and is so potent that an amount the size of three grains of sugar is lethal to an adult

Fentanyl test strip -

£1.00 per test + (P&P £1).

"DMAB test" alco Cocaine adulterant test,

is a chemical test to identify indoles. It is primarily used to identify psychoactive compounds such as tryptamines and ergoloids (i.e. LSD)

Ehrlich reagent (multi-test) 2.5mL - £3.95 + (P&P £1).

The primary use of this reagent is for detecting secondary amines, such as MDMA and methamphetamine, and is used to differentiate between the two mentioned and amphetamine or MDA. 100+ substances colour responses

The primary use of this reagent is for detecting primary amines and hence has the ability to indicate if PMA is mixed with MDMA. 60+ substance colour responses

Simon's/Robatest + buffers (multi test) & test-tubes etc - £9.90 + (P&P £1).

Zimmermann (A+B) test a-PVP, MDPV, mephedrone or other cathinones and for testing Benzos (40+ substances)

Zimmermann (multi test) & test-tubes etc -

£6.95 per test + (P&P £1).

Scott Reagent "Blue" test for Cocaine (best used with Ehrlich Reagent as provides test for Procaine and Benzocaine (common adulterants), Lidocaine, Levamisole, but it’s also a good test for a-PVP, MDPV and derivatives. (70+ substance responses)

Scott Reagent (multi test) 2.5mL -

£3.95 per test + (P&P £1).
