It “only” tests for GHB. Is it even reliable then?
Xantus is criticized in a small number of reports for “only” testing for one substance. Theoretically a variety of substances are used as knockout drops to spike drinks. However, the majority of these potential substances are not suitable in practice, as they can be detected by the “victim” or cause “undesired” reactions. From the perpetrator’s point of view, GHB is the “ideal” and best-known knockout drop, as it cannot be detected. Often, symptoms similar to those of alcohol appear because those under the effects of GHB can feel as if they were heavily intoxicated. P.S.: A seatbelt can protect you from a lot of things and is a large contributor to road safety. The same applies to parties: With the bracelet you are safer.
How common is GHB?
GHB was the most recorded knockout drop substance in 2018 (Statistic Police Berlin, Evaluation by hospitals and toxicologists) More and more evidence of GHB victims, 65% increase in the number of victims (2017-2018). Authorities warn of a very high number of unreported cases.

Pure water and rain
As soon as it comes into contact with pure water or rain, the test-field turns blue for reasons of safety. The blue colouring when in contact with pure water and rain is a warning that the test-field has accidentally been contaminated and cannot be used for a further test..For drinks containing water such as juices, beer, wine etc. the test works normally.
