How to test DMT & ALKALOIDS?

To test DMT always use more than 1 test, because there are more substances than colors. Tests presumptively indicate PRESENCE, but not PURITY or QUANTITY. A positive or negative test result does not mean, that the substance is safe. No substance is 100% safe.


  1. Prepare the smallest sample you can easily see onto a clean surface (e.g. bottom of a mug)
    PLANTS will not work with reagent tests
  2. In good light pour 1 drop of a reagent starting with Ehrlich or Hofmann (included in DMT Test Kit)
    SUBSTANCE COLOR might slightly distort results
    A BIGGER SAMPLE might react stronger than smaller
  3. Compare the first 10-60 seconds of a reaction with flyers
    DMT Reagent Test Kit ChartFLYERS are available at
    APPS available at for web browsers and Android devices can help interpret results
    RECOMMENDED – record reaction to compare later

Pour baking soda over a finished reaction to neutralize used reagents. Your pipes (and environment) will thank you!

All reactions to test DMT

 MARQUIS Orange > Brown
 MECKE Yellow > Green > Black
 MANDELIN Orange / Brown
 EHRLICH Pink > Purple > Blue
 SIMON’S No reaction
 ROBADOPE Slow yellow
 SCOTT No reaction

A test did (not) react as indicated? Watch out!
25I-NBOMe (responsible for many deaths) and other new synthetic psychedelics do not react with Ehrlich and Hofmann reagents, contrary to LSD and derivatives not known for overdoses or significant toxicity.

If testing DMT, 5-MeO-DMT, which is about 5 times more potent than DMT, can be detected with the Hofmann test.

If you want to detect an admixture try a TLC Kit or laboratory analysis. Since fentanyls have been seen on blotters if you have the slightest doubt, test fentanyls presence using Fentanyls SIN Test
