Product Description

The Rapid ResponseTM Xylazine Test Strip (Liquid / Powder) is a rapid visual immunoassay for the qualitative, presumptive detection of xylazine in suspicious substances (liquids or powders) at the cut-off concentration of 1000 ng/mL.

Xylazine is a non-opioid tranquilizer used as a sedative, analgesic, and muscle relaxant in animals such as horses and cattle[1],[3]. In recent years, xylazine has emerged as an adulterant in recreational drugs such as heroin[2]. Combining xylazine with other drugs that cause central nervous system depression compounds the sedative effects and can increase the risk of overdose and death[2].

  • Built in procedural control on every strip
  • Results interpretation printed directly on the pouch
  • Individually packed strips for easy distribution

* A negative result can be interpreted as soon as both the test (T) and control (C) lines appear. A positive result can be interpreted once the control line has appeared and the background has cleared to white, typically by 60 seconds. Do not read results after 10 minutes.
