MDMA can be identified and screened for cuts by using a combination of tests.
Substances, such as amphetamine, DXM (found in cough medicine), mthylone & ethylone (“bath salts”) are often mis-sold as MDMA. To ensure your sample is MDMA, we recommend using the following 3 tests:
- Marquis test: Turns black with MDMA.
- Mecke test: Goes from green to black with MDMA. IOt’s a good double check for MDMA, and screens 5-APB/6-PB, which do not turn green at the start of the reaction. An alternative to Mecke, is Froehde, which is also able to differentiate between MDMA and 5/6-APB.
- Simon’s test: Is useful to differentiate between MDMA, and MDA (a closely related substance). Simon’s is a secondary test, and shouldn’t be used on it’s own.
The following package includes all 3 tests at a discount:

Testing MDMA Purity
While the above method indicates the presence of MDMA, it doesn’t indicate the proportion of MDMA in a sample. You may use an MDMA purity test to get an idea of how pure your sample is: MDMA Purity Test
