Issues of Speciallnterest in Sweat Testing

1. In one study, the effect of 18 adulterants on EIA and GC-MS for opiates was investigated (83). The patches were spiked with adulterants and air-dried, then spiked with 15ng/mL heroin, codeine or morphine and incubated at 37°C for 7 days. Most of the adulterants tested did not have any effect with the exception of a few (Table 8). Moreover, exposure of the skin to many of these adulterants causes visible inflammation and discomfort to the subject, decreasing the possibility of their use.
