Forensic Drug Testing Information

Winning the war on drugs

The adoption of mass spectrometry (MS)–based workflows in forensic drug testing labs is increasing at a rapid pace, due in part to the continued rise in the manufacturing and trafficking of synthetic or designer drugs and the changing trends of drugs of abuse.

The purpose of these learning center resources is to examine some of the changing aspects in forensic drug testing, and introduce emerging MS technologies to help improve workflows for targeted drug screening, quantification, and identifying new or unknown drugs.
