The NarcoCheck® Alpha-PVP rapid test strip is an immunoassay for fast the detection of alpha-Pyrrolidinovalerophenone use in human urine.
Alpha-PVP (α-PVP or alpha-Pyrrolidinovalerophenone) is a new synthetic drug derived from cathinone.
Like other new synthetic drugs, alpha-PVP has been sold in many countries under the misleading name Bath salts,Research Chemicals(RC) orFertilizers.
It is actually a powerful and addictive psychostimulant.
This test can detect any consumption of Alpha-PVP, up to 48-72h after the last intake
This test is very specific to Alpha-PVP, and does not cross-react with other molecules, even very similar, such as methamphetamine or MDMA. It therefore confirms that the drug consumed is closely related to the new synthetic drugs, and not to an older molecule, for which we have equally specific tests.
This test shows virtually no cross-reaction with new synthetic drugs such as methcathinones, which form another large class of synthetic cathinones, for which we have a specific test.
