|Marquis:The Marquis Test is a reagent field test conducted by placing a drop of reagent liquid onto a small sample of the material being tested. The chemicals in the reagent react differently with different chemicals, turning a variety of colors based on the what is in the material being tested.||Orange to Brown|
|Mecke:As with the Marquis Test, The Mecke Test is a reagent field test conducted by placing a drop of liquid reagent onto a sample of the material in question. Mecke reagent is primarily used for the identification of heroin and other opiates.||Orange to Brown|
|Mandelin:The Mandelin Test is a reagent field test conducted by placing a drop of liquid reagent onto a sample of the material in question. Mandelin is primarily used for the detection of ketamine and PMA. It is a mixture of ammonium metavanadate and concentrated sulfuric acid.||Orange to Brown|

Should the public have access to independent analysis of the products they consume?
The vast majority of analyses of over-the-counter, prescription, and recreational drugs are performed in secret with no independent oversite or review. No other historical record, free from politically-controlled agencies, is currently available in North America nor most other parts of the world.
DrugsData, a project of Erowid Center, needs the support of professionals, students, parents, individuals with means, and small foundations for a total yearly budget of around $120,000 USD. Erowid Center's general budget and the co-pays we require fund most of this cost.Donate now
Update May 13, 2014: The lab received a pure standard of modafinil and was able to confirm that this sample was pure modafinil.
The previously reported benzophenone that was detected by the lab had been created during the testing process and is not present in the original tablet.
Thanks to everyone, including the vendor, who helped get this issue resolved.
Benzophenone is a precursor chemical and could be a contaminant from an incomplete synthesis. Minor traces of other organic compounds were present but not identified. The lab's original view is that the Benzophenone is from an incomplete synthesis, but we have toned down that language. We have ordered the necessary lab standards to be able to better analyze modafinil [apr 2 2014], it will be a couple weeks before we get the samples and can re-run the analysis.
The lab notes: Modafinil degrades in the GC column and mass spectra match is base on degradation product of modafinil in the MS. Benzophenone and other minor trace organic compounds could be resultant of modafinil degradation products in the GC/MS.
