Designer drugs are synthetic versions of illegal drugs which have been modified and labelled so they are not subject to any regulation or oversight. This means they have properties and effects similar to a hallucinogen or narcotic but have a slightly altered chemical structure to evade restrictions against illegal substances. They are generally stronger than the original substances and are sold under innocent names such as bath salts, incense, or plant food.

The European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction reported earlier this year that it had detected 73 new substances last year, compared with 49 in 2011.

At Randox testing Services, we provide an array specifically designed to detect designer and synthetic drugs.
