A new product designed to allow people to test their drinks to see if they have been spiked with the drugs typically used in date rapes has been launched. The matchbox-sized device called the Drink Detective costs just £3.95, and contains test pads that can detect Rohypnol, GHB or ketamine, and a pipette for users to apply drinks samples. Bloomsbury Innovations, which manufacture the devices, said the test was designed to detect the minimum amount of a drug needed to incapacitate the victim. "For the perpetrator, drug rape is currently an almost risk-free crime. Victims become partially incapacitated and often have no memory of what occurred," said Stanley Grossman, a director at the company. "Even if they do realise what happened, all traces of the offending drug will probably have left the system before they go to the police to seek help." The Drink Detective will be on sale in shops and vending machines, and on the www.drinkdetective.com website.
