The PSILO-Q Test from Miraculix is a brand new method that lets you analyze the exact concentration of psilocybin, the active ingredient of Magic Mushrooms and Magic Truffles, within 30 minutes. It is the first product on the market that allows you to measure how strong your Mushrooms, Sclerotia (Truffles) or Psilocybin-extracts really are. The genius behind this new test kit is Dr. Felix Bei, who developed it at the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena.
All you need to do, is follow 4 simple steps and evaluate your probe on a coloring scale, which indicates how much psilocybin is contained in your sample!
Mobile rapid test for the determination of psilocybin content in different materials (mycelium, fruiting bodies, sclerotia, extracts)
- Rapid evaluation after 30 minutes
- Detection range between 0.1 - 2% active substance content
- Only 150 mg of starting material is required
- Deviation of less than 10% from laboratory analysis (HPLC)
- Evaluation of the probe is done by evaluating it on a color-scale
- The PSILO-Q Test is a single-use test
Storage and shelf life:
- Cool storage of the reagents at 2 °C to 8 °C, with protection from direct sunlight (e.g. refrigerator), guarantees a 12-month shelf life for the consumables if stored properly.
- The extraction solution may turn slightly yellow over time, but is still fully usable.
Additional information about the test:
Hot water is required for incubation.
- protective gloves
- plastic extraction vial with screw cap
- glass vial with tightly close lid and septum
- syringe 1 ml
- blunt cannula
- sterifilt (syringe filter)
4 Step Manual
Before you can test anything, you need to be properly prepared. Take out all components of the kit and put on the protective gloves. Also make sure to wear appropriate clothing (nothing to long or fuzzy) and to work in a clean and sterile environment. Take around 150mg of the material you want to test, crush it, and mix it well. For extracts, the amount should be equal to 150mg of mushroom material. Heat one liter of water and let it cool down for a bit. Don't work with boiling water because it dissolves the psilocybin!
Open the extraction vial, put in the crushed components using the folded base, close it tighly and shake it for 10 seconds. Then put the vial down and wait 10 minutes. Repeat this process 2 more times. Now, put the sterifilt on the syringe and draw 1ml of the liquid out of the extraction vial. Pull the syringe plunger completely open and hold it; this will creater a pressure that slowly fills the syringe with liquid. Remove the Sterifilt from the syringe, unpack the cannula and put it on the syringe. Next, you pierce the septum of the glass vial with the blund needle and inject the entire liquid from the syringe into it.
Make sure the syringe is not directly exposed to the liquid in the glass vail. Then completely fill the empry syringe with air, this prevents overpressure as well as liquids from splashing out when removing the syringe from the glass vessel
Put the glass vessel with the detection solution into your warm (not boiling!) water. The solution in the glass vessel will now start to discolor, and you need to wait for 15 minutes until you can read the result.
Your test solution should now have a beige-to-brown like color. This is what you need to pay attention to. With the help of the evaluation scale, you can now determine how much milligramms of psilocybin is in your sample solution.
