The  Amplifi ID Advantage

Experience the power of precision in 3 effortless steps


Dilute the drug sample to prepare it for analysis.



Effortlessly scan the prepared sample with the Amplifi ID Reader



Our software analyzes the signal and provides plain language results. 


Within just 10 minutes, assess the composition of the drug sample and gain valuable insights.

How it works: Enhanced Molecular Fingerprinting
Proprietary Sensing Platform

Amplifi ID leverages the power of portable Raman spectroscopy and surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) to detect unique scattered light signatures from samples.


These signatures are so information rich and specific to organic substances that scientists have coined them “molecular fingerprints”.

Machine Learning Analysis

Our software then uses machine learning algorithms and our own proprietary database of molecular fingerprints collected from physical drug samples to translate fingerprints of an unknown sample into a simple to read result.

Detect what matters most, all on a single test.

Synthetic Opioids

Synthetic opioids are far more potent than naturally derived compounds like morphine and heroin, and samples on the illicit market place are rarely pure. Opioid samples are often cut with other compounds (including other unexpected opioids), while they are also often present in samples where no opioids are expected.


Fentanyl is almost never pure. Surveillance of the Toronto Drug supply from 2021-2022 found only 5% of expected fentanyl samples contained NO other active ingredients. It can have dangerous effects when mixed with other active agents like benzodiazepines.  

Relative potency (Morphine= 1): 100


Carfentanil is one of the most potent opioids ever synthesized, and is only legally used as a tranquilizer for large mammals. Doses of approximately 5-10 ug/kg body weight are used in sedation. 

Relative potency (Morphine= 1): 10,000 


A relative newcomer with comparable potency to fentanyl, isotonitazene and other "nitazene" opioids have become a steady presence in the opioid supply. 

Relative potency (Morphine= 1): ~200 


Benzodiazepines ('Benzos') have extremely powerful synergistic interactions with opioids (and other depressants) which makes them dangerous cutting agents. Although an antagonist does exist to reverse the effects of an overdose (flumazenil), it has a much shorter duration and greater risk of side effects than naloxone. It is therefore not widely distributed for frontline use.


Etizolam is technically a thienodiazepine with distinct structural differences from benzos. Widely available benzodiazepine test kits have had difficulty detecting it.  

Estimated relative potency (Diazepam = 1): 5 


Estimated relative potency (Diazepam = 1): 40  


Estimated relative potency (Diazepam = 1): 130 

Other Drugs


Xylazine use poses the same dangers as most depressants, with central nervous system depression leading to slowed breathing and lowered heart rate, which may be life-threatening. No known competitive antagonist (naloxone equivalent) to reverse overdose. Chronic xylazine use can cause deoxygenation, which inhibits wound healing, causes severe ulcers, and even lead to amputations in extreme cases.
