FORENSICS SOURCE ADDS SWABTEK™ PRODUCTS TO NARCOTICS TESTING LINE

November 4, 2020, JACKSONVILLE, Florida – Forensics Source™ a brand of The Safariland Group, a leading global provider of safety and survivability products designed for the public safety, military, professional and outdoor markets, announced today that it has added SwabTek products to the Forensics Source product line. The addition of SwabTek’s tests to Forensic Source’s line of NIK field drug testing products gives investigators access to a reliable tool specially designed for rapid surface testing for amphetamine, cannabis, cocaine, and heroin.

“We are proud to be working with Forensics Source to bring SwabTek’s accurate, intuitive field testing tools into the hands of more law enforcement, first responders, school administrators and corporations who need them most,” said Bobby Betros, CEO of SwabTek. “We’re glad to offer a resource that enables everyone to safely test surfaces for harmful substances.”

NIK test kits are typically used with dosage amounts of sample found during narcotics investigations. Historically the NIK tests have provided results with over 99% reliability when utilizing the Polytesting System as a means for almost immediate presumptive identification. The availability of SwabTek products will now give investigators a safe and easy-to-use presumptive field test to check surfaces for the presence of narcotic contamination, test vaping products where the NIK tests would not be of use or detect trace amounts of powder that do not have enough volume for NIK testing.

As with all testing, whether with NIK or SwabTek products, it is always advisable to not only conduct a field presumptive test, but also to send to the laboratory for confirmatory testing.

Now investigators have convenient access to an array of tools to conduct competent presumptive field testing for narcotics in almost any situation. Forensic Source will be selling the Amphetamine, Cannabis, Cocaine, and Heroin tests in 100-packs (MSRP of $250.00).
