The Handbook of Forensic Drug Analysis is a comprehensive chemical and analytic reference for the forensic analysis of illicit drugs. With chapters written by leading researchers in the field, the book provides in-depth, up-to-date methods and results of forensic drug analyses. This Handbook discusses various forms of the drug as well as the origin and nature of samples. It explains how. Since the inception of the drug-testing program in the U.S. Armed Forces in , urine adulteration with the intent to conceal drug use has been a serious problem to forensic scientists. Forensic science is the use of advanced scientific techniques during criminal and civil investigations. Forensic science can answer important questions about a any crime and be applied to legal cases that are civil in nature. Forensic science plays an integral role in the criminal justice system. Forensic Analysis is carried out by the two. For analysis of solid-dose drug evidence (also referred to as seized-drug evidence), the Scientific Working Group for the Analysis of Seized Drugs and its European counterpart, the Drugs Working Group, have published recommendations for best practices for qualitative and quantitative protocols. Although there is no analogous working group for.

• Perform qualitative analyses of evidential materials using established chemical. The Purpose of Drug Analysis. The ultimate purpose of forensic drug collection, preservation, and analysis is to ensure such evidence is legally admissible as evidence in a court of law.

The present guidelines on representative drug sampling were developed by the Drugs Working Group (WG) of the European Network of Forensic Science Institutes (ENFSI).

They represent the result of an extensive consultation process among European drugs experts over the course of the years 2 Guidelines for the forensic analysis of drugs facilitating sexual assault and other criminal acts substances.
