Adulteration Test Products Become a Necessity

With the spread of adulteration knowledge via the Internet, use of adulterants has increased . Hence, adulteration testing has become a necessity for guaranteeing the integrity of the drug-test process. However, laboratory-based adulterant test systems may not sufficiently detect all of the adulteration products in submitted specimens, because of the time delay involved in shipping and the quick dissemination of many newer-generation adulterants. Hence, the importance of on-site adulterant tests will increase (an example is discussed in Chapter 14). With the incorporation of adulterant test panels into lateral-flow drug test devices like the test cup, specimen integrity is established while the drug testing is being performed (an example is discussed in Chapter 12). This type of test product will become the device of choice.
