Fundamentals of Sample Preparation used in Toxicology
- More Information
This course addresses sample preparation techniques that may be used for confirmatory testing of urine, blood and tissue specimens in forensic drug testing laboratories. All specimens with positive initial drug test results must be analyzed using a confirmatory drug test to identify and quantify the specific drug or drug metabolite. Specimens routinely undergo sample preparation prior to confirmatory analysis. This course covers sample pre-treatment techniques, extraction theory as well as both solid phase and liquid phase extraction techniques, and derivatization.
Course Type: On-Demand Presentation
