  • Includes Lab Testing and 24 Hour Turn Around With Additional $40 +GST Per Kit Which Contains 5 Swabs
  • We highly recommend all rooms in the home are tested, not testing every room can result in missing contaminated areas.

To confirm meth presence in the property, sampling every room reduces the risk of not detecting meth in the property.  This Baseline test is not used to confirm the effectiveness of cleaning in a property.  DO NOT BOOK THIS TEST IF YOU HAVE UNDERTAKEN ANY RECENT CLEANING.

We use lab based testing, because it is the most accurate and sensitive way of testing for meth. A lab based meth test will identify meth residues when just 0.02µg of meth is picked up in a sample. For one sample, this amount is equivalent to just 4% of the currently acceptable Ministry of Health Guidelines. So, low levels of meth can be identified. Particularly important when a property has been repainted!

If you want a Garage or sleep out tested please state this in the booking.


What is methamphetamine?

Methamphetamine is an extremely addictive, powerful stimulant. It produces wakefulness, hyperactivity and a euphoric effect.
Methamphetamine is also known as speed, pure, P, burn, goey, crank, meth, crystal, ice and yaba.

What Police are doing about methamphetamine

Methamphetamine has serious social, economic and even environmental consequences. Police are focused on breaking-down local and international crime syndicates and disrupting the production, importation and distribution of methamphetamine.

Police has a methamphetamine action plan which makes disrupting methamphetamine manufacturing a priority for all Police staff. Police works closely with the Organised and Financial Crime Agency of New Zealand, which targets organised criminal groups such as gangs that are involved in the methamphetamine trade.

Visit the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet website to read  Tackling Methamphetamine: Indicators and Progress Report(link is external) [PDF 987KB].

Clandestine drug laboratories

Methamphetamine is manufactured in New Zealand in clandestine (secret) drug laboratories, known as 'clan labs', or imported in crystal form. There are risks in the process due to the poisonous, explosive, corrosive, toxic and extremely flammable chemicals used.

Exposure to chemicals found in clan labs can cause various symptoms including headaches, watery or burning eyes, nausea, burning skin, coughing or choking, diaphragm pain, feeling of coldness or weakness, shortness of breath or dizziness, decreased cognitive function, vertigo and convulsions.

If you find a clan lab, get out

Strange smells, fumes and vapour escaping from windows or ventilators, sealed windows and premises being used for purposes other than normal, are some of the signs that indicate premises may be being used as a clan lab. If you suspect you have found a clan lab get away from the area immediately.

If you suspect the house you are moving into has previously been used as a clan lab, contact your local council's environmental health officer or your local police station.

Methamphetamine laws and penalties

Methamphetamine is a class A drug under the Misuse of Drugs Act and therefore attracts severe penalties.

Manufacturing, importing, dealing and possession for supply can lead to a life sentence. Possession of five grams of methamphetamine (a tablespoon) is enough to warrant a conviction for possession for supply.

Those caught importing the precursors of methamphetamine (pseudoephedrine and ephedrine) without a licence can attract jail sentences of up to eight years.

Possessing a pipe or utensil for smoking methamphetamine is also an offence and can result in a one year jail term or a fine of up to $1000.

To find out more about penalties associated with methamphetamine see  Illicit drugs.
