How to test MDMA?

How to test MDMA: 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. Crush onto a clean surface (e.g. bottom of a mug) a sample no bigger than a pin head
      PILL – finely crush a small piece, about 1/20th
      LIQUID – Pour a drop on unbleached paper and dry before testing
    1. In good light pour 1 drop of a test onto your sample We recommend tests included in the MDMA Test Kit
      SUBSTANCE COLOR might slightly distort results
      A SAMPLE SIZE might react differently than smaller
  1. Compare the first 10-60 seconds of a reaction with flyers
    FLYERS 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!

If you want to detect an admixture of PMA, 2C-x, Amphetamine, Nor-Mephedrone or other primary amine use Robadope and Simon’s (included in the MDMA Test Kit). To detect all adulterants try a TLC Kit or laboratory analysis. If you have the slightest doubt, test fentanyls presence using Fentanyls SIN Test


MDMA (Ecstasy) tablets nowadays are more often too strong than too weak. If you intend to use, start with no more than 1/3rd. If you plan to prolong the effects, 1/2 of a previous dose taken 2 hours after initial effects is enough. Do not exceed 200mg a night and do minimum a few months long breaks. Hydrate (0,3l/h), rest and avoid mixing with other stimulants.
