Abstract
NEW TECHNIQUES THAT IMPROVE THE PORTABILITY, SELECTIVITY, AND ECONOMY OF DRUG ASSAYS ARE NECESSARY. RECENT ADVANCES IN ELECTROCHEMICAL DETECTORS AND DETECTOR ARRAYS, PORTABLE INSTRUMENT DESIGN, AND APPLIED ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE ARE COMBINED IN THE PROPOSED WORK. THE RESULT IS A LOW-COST, PORTABLE, AND HIGHLY SELECTIVE LIQUID CHROMATOGRAPH FOR THE QUALITATIVE AND QUANTITATIVE ANALYSIS OF DRUGS IN BODY FLUIDS. IN THIS PHASE I RESEARCH, AN APPARATUS IS ASSEMBLEDAND TESTED IN ORDER TO EVALUATE THE FEASIBILITY OF A PORT- ABLE LCEC SYSTEM THAT HAS EXCEPTIONAL ANALYTICAL CAPABILI- TIES. THE RESULTANT DEVICE WILL HAVE A MICROCOMPUTER AND SOFTWARE TO ALLOW AUTOMATED ANALYSES AND MAKE THE EQUIPMENT EASY TO USE.
