Drug Testing Technology: Assessment of Field Applications (Methods in Analytical Toxicology) by Tom Mieczkowski



The strength of this book lies in its explanations of the very complex issue of drug testing technology, and how this technology can be best used to advantage in the workplace, in the justice system, and in a medical setting. I would recommend this book to anyone dealing with drugs in the workplace, offender diversion programs, or drug compliance programs. -Wayne K. Jeffery, Canadian Society of Forensic Science Journal, Vol. 34, No. 1 Promo Copy. Series: Methods in Analytical Toxicology. Hardcover: 392 pages.

Further discussion about different analytical methods is provided in the sections below and summarized in Table 1. Atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS). In analytical toxicology, even the most sophisticated and accurate equipment will provide incorrect results if the samples have not been appropriately collected and handled, if the equipment has not been used correctly or if analytical protocols have not been followed. The primary concerns associated with current measurements of blood lead concentrations are unrecognized contamination and insufficient quality assurance (QA). ualityAssurance 1/Default. 20.

Toxicology Testing and Evaluation. History of Toxicology and Environmental Health. The book describes the historical development of technologies that have influenced the application of alternatives in toxicology and safety testing. These range from single cell monocultures to sophisticated, miniaturised and microfluidic organism-on-a-chip devices, and also include molecular modelling, chemoinformatics and QSAR analysis, and the use of stem cells, tissue engineering and hollow fibre bioreactors. He has over 180 publications in the area of predictive toxicology, and has a particular interest in the development and assessment of computational methods and their application in the regulatory assessment of chemical safety. During 2012, he held an ORISE fellowship while working at the US Food and Drug Administration's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (FDA CFSAN).

As analytical methods become increasingly sophisticated and capable for the detection of each component in a sample (Barnes & Dourson, 1988), including biological systems (Kote-Jarai et al. 2011), it is critical to separate and quantify them. For nearly half a century, analytical and testing methods as opposed to empirical approaches have played a key role in the identification of key diseases causative toxins (Barnes & Dourson, 1988; Bathija, 2003) and drug-like compounds to cure them (Kote-Jarai et a. 2011; Moore & Carpenter, 1999).

Covering a wide range of research currently being done in drug analysis, Drug Testing Technology: Assessment of Field Applications compares and evaluates various methods used to determine abused drugs taken by individuals, and their application in various programs and contexts. Controversies associated with various methods, including urine analysis and hair analysis, are examined. Contributors from a wide diversity of disciplines offer advanced knowledge, encompassing work which is technical as well as markedly philosophical. Chapters provide overviews of drug incorporation into hair; the use of hair analysis for compliance measurement in the use of anti-epileptic medications; and the application of drug testing to the psychiatric treatment of substance abuse disorders. Drug Testing Technology: Assessment of Field Applications provides information useful in medical applications, workplace testing, criminal justice monitoring community epidemiology, and drug treatment assessment.
