SRI-TOFMS: Rapid Analysis of New Psychoactive Substances Blends

Identification of active ingredients in seconds without sample preparation


A popular NPS blend marketed as “synthacaine” on the internet.

Following up our recent research on explosives, chemical warfare agents, toxic industrial compounds and illicit drugs detection, we are currently focusing on the analysis of New Psychoactive Substances (NPS) utilizing state-of-the-art IONICON PTR-TOF 8000 instruments equipped with SRI capability. NPS, or “designer drugs”, “legal highs” and “research chemicals”, as they are often called, are chemicals with psychoactive effects either similar to illicit drugs or genuine on their own. However, the relevant legislation varies from country to country and NPS are in fact readily available over the Internet.
