Rapid In-Field Screening for Fentanyl Analogs

Rapid in-field screening for fentanyl analogs


In recent years there has been an increase in fatalities related to the use and consumption of opioids, a class of synthetically manufactured pain-relieving drugs similar to naturally derived opiates like morphine, opium, codeine, and heroin. This application demonstrates the use of the novel Custodion® Coiled Microextraction (CME) syringes and the Torion T-9 Portable GC/MS as a fast and easy to use screening tool for drugs of abuse and new psychoactive substances (NPS) in the field.
