Opioids and Emerging Drugs AAFS Webinar Series

Presented by the American Academy of Forensic Sciences

June 20th

Advances in Portable Drug Detection

1:00 PM ET - 3:00 PM ET

The AAFS ad-hoc Opioid and Emerging Drugs Committee will lead a workshop that will introduce multiple research projects developing or validating portable on-site drug detection methods and equipment. Each method has capabilities over traditional colorimetric testing and may work towards increased on-site sample detection capability and improved detection and discrimination of fentanyl and unknown novel psychoactive substances (NPS) will be discussed.

Emerging Hybrid Separation Detection Techniques for Seized Drugs

1:00 PM ET - 2:00 PM ET

This webinar will describe the great utility of emerging hybrid separation detection techniques for the analysis of seized drugs, particularly applicable to emerging drugs, that can overcome the limitations of classical methods such as gas chromatography (GC)- electron ionization mass spectrometry (EI MS) and gas chromatography- flame ionization detection. Included in this webinar are budding separation techniques such as ultra-high performance supercritical fluid chromatography (UHPSFC) and novel separation approaches utilizing ultra-high performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC). Regarding detection techniques low and cold EI MS, and electrospray ionization to produce enhanced molecular ions, and for the differentiation of positional isomers and diastereomers, vacuum ultraviolet, and infrared detection for GC, and ultraviolet detection for UHPSFC and UHPLC will be discussed.
