Possibilities of cross contamination
8 November 2016 | by stewartherringSee all my reviews

Great TV. Great entertainment. Very cheap to make and makes people aware. If you think you are clever, there are an awful lot of people cleverer than you. It's all been seen and done before, nothing new under the sun. The one thing that worries me is the lack of clean tools used by the customs officers. There seems to be a distinct possibility of cross contamination. Sure, the TV program shows those caught but what happened to those not shown in the TV? The street drug test kits have gained a certain notoriety in the USA (for giving false positives). I hope the Australian government pays for good kits. As they are so sensitive all tools should be absolutely clean. One thing that worried me recently was a computer (admittedly concealing card skimmers) that was opened with the screwdriver in a pen knife! Having had cause to open various electronic items I know that using the wrong tool can bugger the screws holding something together.
