How to Use & Read Your Knope Test

Knope® Test is a single use test that detects specific drug presence in alcoholic and nonalcoholic beer and seltzers.*


What do I do if my Knope only shows 1 blue line (invalid/no reaction)?

Check Time

- Double check the amount of time you have waited for results, add 2 more drops of you drink 

- If you have waited longer than 3-5 minutes and have added the two extra drops of your drink, the test was ineffective and should be voided

Run Again

- Run a second test with a different Knope to see results

- Repeat until results show


What do I do if my Knope shows 3 lines (no drug presence)?

Keep Caution

- Three lines on your Knope means that no drugs have been detected

- Even though this means no drugs have been detected, stay cautious as there is a reason why you tested your drink in the first place

- Keep your friends close, your Knope closer, and your drink closest

- Party on!


What do I do if my Knope shows 2 lines (1 red, 1 black) or 1 red line (drug presence)? 

Stay Calm

- Double check that the reaction matches with a positive drug detection

- Preserve your Knope as evidence

Stop Drinking

- Stop drinking your drink immediately

- Do not drink any other beverages offered to you (this includes water)

Inform Someone

- Inform someone that is not in your proximity that your Knope has detected drug presence, who you are with, where you are, and any other necessary information

- It is very important to tell someone outside of your location because anyone could have drugged you (even friends or acquaintances)

Leave the Premise

- If possible, have the external person pick you up

- If not possible, have another external resource help you leave your location

- Call the police or have security wait with you and escort you out in case you black out

- Have the police or security call an ambulance or take you to the hospital

Go to the Hospital 

- Go to the hospital as soon as you can 

- Tell the doctor that there may be a chance you have been drugged

- Request a urine or blood toxicology test to validate drug presence

- Drugs can metabolize from the body within 12-72 hours so request immediate testing

Report or Charge 

- Decide whether you would like to initiate legal action
