Solutions for Seized Drugs
When it comes to the analysis of seized drug samples, each laboratory is responsible for properly analyzing a material as it pertains to a court of law and prosecution. Materials can come in a variety of forms, such as powder, pills, tablets, e-liquids, oils and even edibles. The Scientific Working Group for the Analysis of Seized Drugs (SWGDRUG) and the Organization for Scientific Committees (OSAC) for Forensic Science provide the minimum requirements for the development of an analytical scheme for proper identification of a drug or chemical. Shimadzu offers a series of analytical tools for a forensic chemist to accurately identify and confirm a controlled substance based on levels of selectivity.
