Testing for Unknown Substances
Testing for known substances is available from US Drug Test Centers with facilities across the United States. Our unknown substance testing is a drug-based analysis of many classes of drugs, including prescription medications, illegal drugs, and over-the-counter medications. Testing for unknown substances can be performed when a pill, powder, or other substance is suspected of being a drug or it simply needs to be identified. It can also test for unknown chemicals, toxins, and poisons.
Uses for Unknown Substance Testing
Unknown substance testing is often used if a person believes they have been drugged and would like to identify the suspected drug. We can use either a urine or hair specimen.
Parents will also request unknown substance testing if they find a strange substance in their child's room and want it tested. Call us and we will provide instructions to ship the unknown substance via FedEx to our laboratory for testing. We make the process easy so you can get the results you're looking for.
Additionally, people will sometimes find unknown substances on their spouse's clothing and want it tested.
White Powder Testing
A white powder can indicate many different types of drugs, both illegal and over-the-counter, in addition to supplements. White powdered drugs are often an indication of:
- Bath salts
Methamphetamine is particularly dangerous. It appears as fine, transparent, shiny crystals and is commonly called Ecstasy, Crystal Meth, Ice, Crank, Glass, and Tina. Meth users experience euphoria, increased alertness, excessive talking, feeling of well-being, and decreased appetite. Smoked or injected, methamphetamine produces an intensely euphoric “rush.”
Cocaine is a shiny crystalline powder resembling snow, often called Coke, Coca, Coco, Snow, Powder, Charlie, Dust, or Snowflake. Common effects of cocaine use are euphoria, stimulation, insomnia, and loss of appetite.
