Abstract

Forensic drug testing brings together multiple related disciplines toward the detection and identification of drugs and poisons, together with interpretation of the findings, for medico-legal purposes. Laboratories conducting such testing should have certification or accreditation and the forensic drug analysts require a high degree of competency. This ten chapter book provides a thorough overview of the field, addressing issues such as collection of evidence, pre-analytical issues, types of substances, strategies and techniques in analysis and interpretation of data.
