with the TICTAC visual drug identification and information system

Search and identify over 34,000 medicines and drugs in seconds. TICTAC is a visual drug identification system for solid dose drugs (tablets, capsules, patches and stamps). It incorporates a continuously updated database of medicines, drugs and products easily confused with drugs, into a very fast and easy to use software system. Over 60,000 law enforcement and healthcare professionals have access to the TICTAC system.

But TICTAC does not just instantly identify drugs. Once a drug has been identified TICTAC displays:

  • Images of the drug/medicine
  • If it is a controlled substance and which class/schedule
  • If it should be prohibited in custody
  • The effects/results on drug tests (cross reactivity)
  • Names/street names
  • For medicines, what they are used to treat
  • Audio Pronunciations
  • Ingredients/chemical structure
  • Manufacturer/contact details (medicines)
  • Physical characteristics
  • Links to SPC (medicines)

There are law enforcement and healthcare versions of TICTAC.
