Taking a sample for testing
The tests described below require only a small sample of the powder or veterinary liquid to be tested ( ~ 0.5gm of powder or 6ml of veterinary liquid is enough to carry out all of the tests)
A sample of veterinary liquid Nembutal for the Spot Test can be obtained as follows: The veterinary packaging is designed so that variable amounts of the drug can be withdrawn from the 100ml bottle using a syringe and hypodermic needle without breaking the sterile seal. Although there is no need for the Nembutal to be sterile for a peaceful death, the drug will keep longer if the seal is not damaged and the solution remains sterile. The bottle should only be opened when the drug is either to be used or discarded. This is done by breaking the seal and removing the rubber stopper.
