What is fentanyl? And why is it so dangerous?
Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that was originally created to help manage severe pain. However, due to its addictive qualities and how cheap it is to produce, fentanyl has rapidly become one of the most prominent drugs in our communities.
Fentanyl comes in many forms, and all of them present potentially life threatening dangers.
With fentanyl, one pill can kill, and many people do not know they have even ingested the drug before it is too late.
As the leader in the chemical detection arena, DetectaChem has taken steps to fight this growing issue by educating people on the dangers of fentanyl, connecting communities to the resources they need and supplying Fentanyl Test Strips that can be used for the near-instantaneous detection of fentanyl in all its forms.
