Abingdon Simply Test is pleased to announce its appointment as the exclusive UK distributor of the CYD (Check Your Drink) drink spiking test.
The drink spike test detects the ‘date rape drugs’ Ketamine and GHB (Gamma Hydroxybutyrate) with a test strip and two drops of alcoholic or non- alcoholic drink. The portable and easy-to-use format means those who are concerned about having a drink spiked, or have fallen victim to drink spiking, can confirm the presence of these debilitating drugs in any location in a matter of seconds.
The CE-marked CYD drink spike test, which has been validated by University College London and Strathclyde University and used by thousands of people across UK and Europe, allows people to test and get results in seconds from a few drops of a suspected spiked drink. Unfortunately, thousands of people have their drinks spiked each year across the world. In a YouGov poll, one in three women and one in five men knew someone who had been spiked or had themselves been spiked.1
CYD is available for pre-order by bars, clubs, universities, and consumers via abingdonsimplytest.com.
Liam Currivan, Abingdon Health’s Distribution Channel Sales Manager, commented:
“We set up Abingdon Simply Test to empower people’s self-health awareness and decision making. The CYD drink spike test meets these criteria and can make such a difference to those who use the tests.
“As someone who has experienced a loved one being ‘spiked’ and witnessed the traumatic effects it has, having a portable tool like CYD to protect against these nefarious acts is an important weapon in our armory. Unfortunately, drink spiking is not uncommon. We are proud to have the CYD drink spike test to offer a solution that allows an immediate check on drinks and gives people peace of mind.”
