Drink Safe Technologies Press Release
12th February 2003

Prevention for drink spiking

Drink spiking is on the increase with alarming figures around the country. In response to this growing epidemic Drink Spike Detector, by Drink Safe Technologies™ has been launched into the market place, and has been named one of Time magazine’s best inventions of 2002.

Drink Safe Technologies, is the innovative leader in producing products to help detect the presence of illicit 'drink spike' drugs - GHB and Ketamine - in beverages. These colourless, odourless and tasteless drugs have been impossible to detect, until now.

The Drink Spike Detector is about the size of a credit card, which contains two tests per card. They incorporate a world patented technology to react with a visible colour change, when in contact with a drink spiked with two of the most popular illicit drugs – GHB and Ketamine.

Due to their size and ease of use, the test cards are relatively inconspicuous and can be used very discreetly. The test takes only seconds to perform, and is as easy as placing a couple of drops from the drink in question, onto the active test spots using a swizzle stick, straw or even one's finger.

Now distributed in Australia, businessman Dean Sunshine has just begun importing the product into the market place: “We feel this product is providing the community with a preventative tool to help combat the growing problem of drug facilitated sexual assault due to drink spiking - and it feels good when I speak to victims who are thrilled to hear something is being done to this life threatening issue”.

In recent years, drug-facilitated sexual assault has become a growing concern among health and community educators. A number of drugs have become known as 'drink spike' drugs or 'predatory drugs' because they are used to incapacitate individuals for the purposes of committing a crime, often sexual assault.

Alcohol is the drug most commonly associated with sexual assault, but incidents involving illicit drugs are on the rise. These drugs are particularly dangerous when combined with alcohol. As with any coerced sexual activity, victims of drug-facilitated sexual assault cannot protect themselves from HIV, other sexually transmitted diseases, or unintended pregnancy.

Drink Spike Detector is currently available online and sells in a pack of 6 for $9.95 or pack of 20 for $23.00.
