Abstract
WE WILL DEVELOP AND DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF AN ENZYMEIMMUNOASSAY FORMAT CAPABLE OF SIMULTANEOUSLY DETECTING AND IDENTIFYING ANY ONE OR MORE OF MULTIPLE DRUGS IN BLOOD FROM A FINGER PRICK. THE EVENTUAL GOAL IS TO DEVELOP A SCREENINGTEST DEVICE HAVING A BUILT-IN SAMPLER WHICH WOULD ALLOW THE USER TO TOUCH THE DEVICE ONTO A DROP OF BLOOD FROM A FINGER PRICK, TURN THE DEVICE OVER AND TAP IT TO INTRODUCE THE SAMPLE, PLACE THE DEVICE INTO A DEVELOPING SOLUTION, WAIT FOR A FEW MINUTES AND OBSERVE THE RESULTS. ANY DESIGNATED BANDS HAVING COLOR WOULD INDICATE THE PRESENCE OF THE CORRESPONDING DRUG. THE SPECIFIC GOAL OF THE PHASE I PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP THE TECHNIQUE, USING A SIMPLER APPARATUS, AND TO DEMONSTRATE THAT ANY COMBINATION OF COCAINE, MORPHINE AND PHENCYCLIDINE CAN BE IDENTIFIED IN A SMALL BLOOD SAMPLE, EACH AT 20 NANOGRAMS/ML OR GREATER CONCENTRATIONS.
