This brief video provides an overview of fentanyl strip testing to identify the presence of fentanyl in unregulated drugs for people who use drugs (PWUD). It also includes a brief demo of how to use fentanyl test strip testing to detect the presence of fentanyl in their drug supply.
Testing for fentanyl test strips can identify the presence of fentanyl in unregulated drugs. They can be used to test injectable drugs, powders, and pills. Being aware if fentanyl is present allows people to implement appropriate harm reduction strategies to reduce the risk of an overdose.
