Trends in analyzing emerging drugs of abuse--from seized samples to body samples

Trends in analyzing emerging drugs of abuse--from seized samples to body samples

Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry 406(25): 6105-6110

This article summarizes the current status of and new trends of analytical approaches in the field of forensic/clinical toxicology for analyzing emerging drugs of abuse. Instruments and devices used for compound identification will be presented as well as types of biosample used to check for drug intake. Finally, a new and promising strategy will be presented, which allows to monitor the consumption of emerging drugs of abuse without using real body samples.
