{May 12, 2014}   World’s first fluorescent sensor to identify the presence of GHB

Finally, a GHB Sensor. A team of researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) has developed the world’s first fluorescent sensor to identify the presence of a drug known as GHB that is commonly used to spike beverages. When the sensor is mixed with a sample of a beverage containing GHB, the mixture changes color in less than 30 seconds, making detection of the drug fast and easy. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/03/140327100000.htm

We have already had some GHB sensors for drinks and this one has the same limitations the others do. They don’t work well in dark drinks and most don’t work in milk based drinks. And, they give a false sense of security. How many times can you test each drink? SO you test your drink and the bad guy sees you do so. NOW he drugs your drink. Each drink, how many times…………cost will add up. And, there are more than 50 drugs identified in drug-facilitated sexual assault. GHB is just one of the many. Granted, it is the toughest to catch. Don’t rely on these devices.
