Episode 36: Date rape drug detection.

Welcome to episode 36 of SonaCast. Undercover Colors made headlines a few years ago for its idea to detect date rape drugs in alcohol using coloured nail varnish. Today that idea has transformed into SipChip, a lateral flow-based device that can detect beverages spiked with drugs (commonly called ‘roofies’) in 30 seconds. In this episode we speak to Undercover Colors’ Director of R&D Dr Nick Letourneau about SipChip and his company’s fight against drug-facilitated sexual assault.
