The Morris reagent is a primary test to identify ketamine, and is a good test for cocaine.
The Morris reagent is relatively new, created by Jeremiah Morris in 2006, and is considered an improvement over the Scott reagent. It is different from most other reagent tests in a few ways:
- Morris is a two part test, meaning 2 different reagents (labelled Morris A and Morris B) are added to the sample.
- The mixture is stirred for 30 seconds to get the final result.
- The reagent is sensitive to the sample quantity. For best results, use a 5-10 mg sample. You may use a micro scoop to help you get the right amount.
- No reaction, or a negative result, is a green color as shown in the provided color chart. Stirring Morris A and Morris B together without a sample produces the same green color.
- Morris binds to the sample producing a color change, most other reagents dissolve the sample during the chemical reaction.
To make it easier to find this product, we also list the Morris reagent as a ketamine test kit on our site.
Test Kit Includes:
- 2 bottles (Morris A and Morris B) with testing fluid
- Color chart with instructions
- Multiple-use testing vial
- Protective storage/transport jar

While reagent testing is the best method for on-the-spot testing, it is never 100% conclusive. There are many variables that can impact what the reaction looks like. Lighting, impurities, and unwanted substances in your sample may all play a role.
No drug (whether legal or illegal) is completely safe, we recommend avoiding all recreational drug use.
