Quick Fix has been around for 25 years, and still passing drug tests. But in this Quick Fix review, I want to talk to you about how reliable it is now, and if there are better alternatives out there. I’m going to tell you exactly what’s in Quick Fix, and how to use it. I’ll also give you a couple of top tips about using it that you probably won’t read many other places as well.
Plus, I’m going to tell you where to buy Quick Fix at the best price, and discuss the instances where Quick Fix has failed people, and why that might be.
What’s In The Box?
Quick Fix is made by a company called Spectrum Labs. It’s frequently updated, and the latest formula is 6.3.
Quick Fix comes in two sizes. A standard two fluid ounce size, and a larger 3 fluid ounce size called Quick Fix plus. It’s important to note that Quick Fix plus is exactly the same fake urine, the “plus” just refers to the larger amount you are buying.
I’d always recommend you buy the larger 3 fluid ounce size for $39.95, rather than the 2 fluid ounce pack to $29.95.
The reason for that recommendation is that some drug testing labs realized that most fake urine comes in two fluid ounce size, so started asking for a minimum sample sizes above 2 fluid ounces to catch people out.
When you get your box of Quick Fix you might be a little underwhelmed. All that’s in it is a container of premixed urine, a heatpad, and an elastic band. Yes, you read that right, you are buying an elastic band. Worse, I’m going to tell you not to even use it.
How Complex Is Quick Fix?
The first part of knowing whether you should be using Quick Fix for drug test success is to look at the complexity of the formula.
The synthetic premixed urine you are buying is basic, but it does have the following characteristics:
- Quick Fix contains urea and uric acid
- It’s balanced for pH and specific gravity
- Quick Fix contains creatinine
- Quick Fix sort of looks like human urine
Now I say it sort of looks like human urine, but under close scrutiny, some people say it has a greenish edge to it, although I can’t see that myself.
I did see a video online once where somebody who claims to be a lab technician said that they can spot Quick Fix if they hold it up to a light. But as every single sample of Quick Fix isn’t getting caught out, either that video was fake, or it’s not something they don’t routinely do.
It also seems a bit laborious, when they do validity checks which would catch out fake samples far more easily than squinting at it while holding up to a light.
As you can see, Quick Fix contains the very basics that human urine does and the sort of things that are looked for in validity testing.
What happens when you submit a sample is that it potentially goes through four levels of checking:
- Within four minutes of handing over, it has to be checked for its temperature. Human urine exits the body at very close to 100°F, so legally they have to test within four minutes, and to be valid has to be between 90°F and 100°F.
- The next level of checking is validity testing. They will look for the basics to see if a sample appears valid. Does it contain urea and uric acid, or does it contain creatine? Does it test right for specific gravity and pH? Does it contain biocide, an artificial preservative found in many fake urine brands?
- After it’s been validity tested, it will undergo an immunoassay test (or go straight to the next stage if it’s been flagged as suspicious). That’s where the sample is tested against panels that react to each substance being looked for.
- A sample that fails validity testing or the panel tests will then be sent for more rigorous gas chromatography – Mass spectrometry analysis.
Now as you can see, Quick Fix is a basic formula. As long as the heat pad doesn’t fail you’ll get past stage one. It contains the basics to get you through the validity testing, and as long as nothing is detected, it will pass the panel test as well.
But, should it come under closer scrutiny visually, if somebody should smell it, or it arouses suspicion, then Quick Fix will definitely fail the highest level of gas chromatography – mass spectrometry analysis.
How To Use Quick Fix For A Drug Test
So as you can see, Quick Fix is good enough to pass a basic pre-employment drug test, a cheap test that doesn’t undergo too much analysis. But beyond that, it’s going to get you into trouble.
Let’s say you’re going to submit a sample after you’ve had a job interview. These are the instructions that will give you the best chance of using Quick Fix for a drug test successfully:
1. Before you start to microwave the plastic container of Quick Fix, always activate the heatpad first. This allows it to warm up and start kicking out a steady heat for a couple of minutes while you prepare the sample.
2. After you’ve prepared the heatpad, gently shake the vial of premixed Quick Fix urine and place it in the microwave. Only microwave it in 15 second bursts. After each one, take it out, gently shake it, and observe it for 30 seconds. If the temperature strip starts to register, just do a very short burst of heat, because you don’t want it to go over 100°F. The temperature strip only registers between 90°F and 100°F, so it’s easy to overheat it and think it’s not warm enough, so you continue to overheat it.
3. Once the Quick Fix is at the correct temperature it’s time to attach it to the heatpad. You get an elastic band in the box of Quick Fix to do this. However, my top tip is to use tape instead. That will keep it far more secure and minimize the risk of the heatpad and the Quick Fix container separating and potentially losing steady heat. You can ping the elastic band and your mates instead.
4. Put on two pairs of underpants and tuck the Quick Fix sample between them. This allows it to be close to your skin, but without being against it. Then put on baggy jogging bottoms so that any lumps and bumps are completely disguised.
5. Just before you go into the building where you’re going to submit your sample, take the vial of Quick Fix out and check the temperature is still between 90°F and 100°F. If it’s not, you’re going to need a heat source to warm it up. My recommendation is to always take a flask of hot water with you, and pour some over if needed to raise the temperature a few degrees.
What’s The Deal With All Those People Saying Quick Fix Failed?
If you see some reviews out there, and also some stuff on social media and places like Reddit, you’ll see discussions around how Quick Fix failed people.
Let’s be honest here, every fake urine product out there is going to fail someone. Are you more likely to jump on social media and tell the world that you past, or that you failed?
People moan about failure. So 1000 people might pass, and five people might fail with Quick Fix, but it’s those five you’ll see online. The bottom line is that Quick Fix is a basic formula. If you are taking a more sophisticated drug test, or it’s scrutinized more closely than usual, then it’s going to fail. But that’s not typical.
Quick Fix contains enough to pass validity testing as long as it’s not looked at too closely, and it doesn’t contain biocide so it can’t be picked up for that either.
Also, the biggest reason people fail using fake urine is actually because they submit it outside that magic 10° temperature range. That could be because the heatpad fails, or they just messed up.
Where To Buy Quick Fix
If you want to buy Quick Fix, then I’d recommend you buy it from this web store. It’s where I buy mine, and they have never let me down, sending out with rapid delivery in the USA. Always go for the big 3 fluid ounce size, which costs $39.99.
Make sure you don’t buy Quick Fix, or any other types of fake urine, on sites like eBay, Amazon, or Craigslist. They are often fake or out of date.
Quick Fix Alternatives: What’s Better?
So the conclusion of my review of Quick Fix is that it’s plenty good enough to pass basic pre-employment drug tests as long as it doesn’t face close scrutiny, and as long as you submit it within the correct temperature range.
But there are more complex alternatives out there. Sub Solution and Quick Luck other two products I will point you towards.
Sub Solution and Quick Luck are actually almost identical and made by the same company, Clear Choice.
Sub Solution costs $80 and is a powder. You have to mix it with water (not bottled water because that contains things not found in human urine).
Quick Luck costs $100 and is premixed. It’s a slightly more complex formula as well.
But either of these products is far more advanced. Both contain everything Quick Fix does, plus 11 more chemicals found in human urine. They are definitely the most complex synthetic urine products around.
On top of that, they don’t use heatpads which can fail. They both use heat activator powder. Just before you go in, you tap in about one third of it, shake the sample, and it agitates the liquid to heat it up. That means you don’t even need a microwave, and you don’t have to worry about the temperature cooling.
