Introduction to Presumptive Drug Analysis

NARK and NARK II Presumptive Drug Test Kits


The chemical reagents included in selfcertifying kits are formulated in strict adherence with The National Institute of Justice, Standard0605.00, Color Test Reagents/Kits for Preliminary Identification of Drugs of Abuse as developed by the Law Enforcement Standards Laboratory of the National Bureau of Standards.

Presumptive Drug Analysis

These reagents are commonly accepted within the scientific community as the reagents of choice for the preliminary identification of the specific substance(s), and are generally utilized as the initial part of the unknown substance analytical scheme to reduce possibilities and ultimately yield the substances true identity. Since the color tests are adaptable to field use, they are part of the accepted investigative process employed by police officers to presumptively identify controlled substances. Along with other circumstantial facts, physical appearance, odor, texture, etc., they help the police officer form the probable cause to support his suspicion that the unknown substance is controlled.

Our original NARK tests come in a Tubette format.

Our NARK II tests come in durable, polyethylene pouches.

SIRCHIE Finger Print Laboratories offers the NARK II Progressive System for Drug Identification. NARK II has the capability of presumptively identifying several families of substances suspected of being abused drugs. Designed to function as a transportable narcotics laboratory, it is available for use wherever the need for its capability might arise. Each of the tests is comprised of one or more chemical reagents. When a predictable color or series of colors occur within a specific testing sequence, a positive confirmation may be presumed. Presumptive identification is generally recognized within our legal system as a component of probable cause. There is no drug identification system presently in use which completely eliminates the occurrence of false positives and false negatives. A forensic laboratory is required to qualitatively identify an unknown substance. SIRCHIE offers a variety of combination NARKII field kits in rugged plastic cases containing from 16 to 130 individual tests. Custom kits are also availablecontact SIRCHIE NARK sales at (800) 356-7311 for details and quotes. SIRCHIE Tradition. Expertise. Excellence. Web: www.sirchie.com

NARK II notebook & Patrol Kits
The 12-Pak Narcotic Notebook Kit was designed specifically for those departments in need of a convenient way to incorporate presumptive test kits in the field. Rather than carry these tests loose and chance accidentally breaking them, this kit is made of hard black plastic with foam cutouts for 12 individual tests. A color chart showing the proper reactions is attached to the inside cover of the case. This kit contains most common tests used for presumptively identifying drugs of abuse. The 24-Pak Narcotic Notebook Kit is an expanded version of the 12-Pak. This kit utilizes the same hard black plastic case with foam inserts and color instruction chart but includes more tests. The NARK II Patrol Kit includes the 3 reagents most often used by patrol officers for presumptive drug screening: 4 tests for cocaine, 2 for methamphetamine and 2 for marijuana.
