Use this Folin test kit to:
- Detect piperazines (such as BZP and TFMPP).
- Differentiate between MDMA, and MDA (also see the Simon’s Test Kit).
- Differentiate between amphetamine, and methamphetamine (also see the Simon’s Test Kit).
Note: The Folin test should only be used after first testing with Marquis, Mandelin or Mecke (ideally all three).
