We report a SIMPLE test experiment based on a prototype CF3I superheated droplet detector with a total exposure of 0.024 kgd. The result, despite the low exposure, is seen to provide restrictions on the allowed phase space of both spinindependent and-dependent interactions which can be compared with those from the significantly larger searches in assessing the potential impact of a full-scale experiment. Key words: WIMP search, superheated liquids PACS: 95.35.+d, 05.70.Fh, 29.40.-n The search for weakly interacting massive particle (WIMP) dark matter is traditionally classified as to whther spin-independent (SI) or spin-dependent (SD) according to which interaction channel they are most sensitive, of which the first has generally attracted the most attention. The current status of the S
