Synthetix5 puts itself in a bit of a bind by boldly advertising itself as "the world's best synthetic urine." The problem with a claim like that is that if you don't live up to the hype, people are not going to give you a second chance.
In fact, they’re going to be pissed off and make it a point to spread the word that you’re not what you claim to be. And how could you blame them.
Because too many people are getting caught out in mandatory urine tests, there is a real reason to be concerned. The maker’s of the synthetic piss won’t give you a job if you fail a test, so always make sure you’ve done all your homework.
Below we’re going to take a look at Synthetix5 and see if it clears the bar it sets for itself or if, instead of being the world’s best, it is in fact just another fake urine product that doesn’t work so well.
So, Just What is Synthetix5?
Synthetix5 gets off to a less than auspicious start by claiming to be “laboratory grade” urine, and the same as what is used to calibrate the drug testing machines.
While that seems like the kind of statement that would inspire confidence, in reality, it does just the opposite and makes us wonder right out of the gate what we're dealing with here.
Because unlike what the makers of Synthetix5 want you to believe all the better synthetic products (our list) are in fact "laboratory grade" and rely on the same formula that was initially devised to create fake pee to test the testing machines.
Synthetix5 claims to be balanced for pH. Well, so are most others. It claims to be balanced for creatinine and specific gravity. Again, most of the better artificial products are as well, not just Synthetix5.
And it claims to be tested before it leaves the lab. Well, we hate to break it to the makers of this product, but most reputable fake pee is tested before they are released for use.
This is not to say that it's terrible that a Synthetix5 lab test will reveal specific gravity and creatinine levels, or that it’s awful that each batch is tested before leaving the lab. Just that it's not the only product that can make those claims.
And focusing on those things rather than reliability does raise some eyebrows.
Does Synthetix5 Contain Biocide?
No, Synthetix5 doesn’t contain biocide which is used in other products to extend the shelf life.
Essentially, biocide works like a preservative and is a patented technology used in some other fake pee products.
While it’s great that it keeps bacterial growth at bay, the question is how soon labs will be able to adapt and easily test for such an ingredient.
Because biocide is synthetic, there would be no reason to detect it in organic pee, so it would definitely be a big red flag. So far this hasn’t happened, but it’s something we’re keeping an eye on.
Synthetix5 fake urine also claims to be unisex, as though that were something pretty special. But the fact is that no 5-panel drug test on earth tests for chromosomes or the presence or absence of hormones like estrogen or testosterone.
So the claim that there's something special about your urine product because it's "unisex" doesn't hold water.
Every product is unisex because the testing machines are unisex in that they aren't designed to test for gender.
Finally, this product boasts that it's premixed and that this is a positive thing that sets it apart from other brands of fake pee.
In this case, we're happy to say that, while they are not the only brand to to offer this, being pre-mixed is a good thing.
So keep in mind that while Synthetix5 is undoubtedly a good fake pee product, the issue here is that it sets itself up to be unique, when in fact it's not.
And that false claim tends to piss people off (so to speak) and color their opinion of the product. But we're going to do our best to give them a pass on the empty boasting and see if we can tell whether their product is as dependable as it claims.
Do Synthetix5 and Labcorp Mix?
Whether it's premixed or balanced for pH or comes in the best-looking package that ever existed are secondary considerations to whether or not fake pee delivers the desired result.
After exhaustive research of the anecdotal evidence, Synthetix5 reviews and hearing from scores of people who used the product, we can say without much hesitation that it seems you stand a pretty good chance of passing your test with this product if you follow the instructions to the letter.
So far so good.
On the other hand, you can say that about most other urine products, not just Synthetix5.
Besides, LabCorp is one of the most extensive testing companies, and some have claimed that Synthetix5 won’t stand up to LabCorp scrutiny. We didn’t see any particular problem in our tests, but it’s something to be concerned about.
Will Synthetix5 Fail a Drug Test?
As we said there is little doubt that, when used as directed, you’ll stand a good chance of passing your test using Synthetix5 with uric acid and urea.
But it’s not what we would consider the best product on the market.
For one thing, the heating pads are a concern because frankly we tried using them and had a hard time maintaining the proper temperature.
And the first thing labs test for before they look for specific drugs is the temperature of the sample.
If it comes in at less than 90 degrees Fahrenheit it will be kicked straight out as fake.
Other premium grade urines such as QuickFix do a better job of attaining and maintaining the proper temperature, and they won't typically cost any more than Synthetix5.
Synthetix5 Review Conclusion
Synthetix5 is an excellent product that will give you a better chance than some other brands of fake pee of passing a drug test. It comes pre-mixed, contains both urea and uric acid and has a generally good record of success.
However, it is anything but “The World’s Best Synthetic Urine” and the fact that it comes up a bit short when judged against proven products like Quick Fix 6.2 should make you question the wisdom of choosing it.
Quick Fix provides a synthetic product that is every bit the equal of Synthetix5 but goes the extra mile in also offering you the means to easily keep the sample at the desired temperature and transport it discreetly.
So, if you want to run with the positive Synthetix5 urine reviews, go ahead. But when it's our money on the line, we're going to opt for QuickFix every time.
Mainly because it's about the same price and it will do all the things Synthetix5 claims to do, and do them with a higher degree of reliability. And isn’t that what it’s all about?
