  5. DRUG SCREENING: HIGH-SPEED CAPILLARY GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY

    SBC: Ionics International, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MAJOR PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH THE SCREENING OF BODY FLUIDS FOR DRUGS OF ABUSE INCLUDE THE RELATIVELY LOW SPEED OF ANALYSIS AND THE OFTEN POOR RELIABILITY OF THE GENERATED DATA. CAPILLARY GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY IS ACKNOWLEDGED TO BE SUPERIOR IN PERFORMANCE TO THIN-LAYER CHROMATOGRAPHY AND IMMUNOASSAYS, BUT IT IS GENERALLY TOO SLOW TO BE OF VALUE IN THE SCREENING OF LARGE NUMBERS OF SAMPLES. IONICS RES ...
