GHB drug testing

About GHB


GHB (gamma hydroxybutyrate) is a depressant drug that slows down the messages travelling between the brain and body. GHB usually comes as a colourless, odourless, bitter or salty liquid, which is usually sold in small bottles or vials. It can also come as a bright blue liquid known as ‘blue nitro’, and less commonly as a crystal powder.

Do you test for GHB?

Alphabiolabs can test a subject for GHB use. We test using state of the art drug testing equipment and processes to ensure that if GHB is present it will be detected. Also we can detect GHB over a period of time to show if a subject has stopped using. For example if it has been established that they have used the drug in the past, but now claim to have stopped.
