Today on-site drug testing is used widely in the workplace, the justice system (probation and parole), hospital emergency rooms, physician offices, and rehabilitation programs. In On-Site Drug Testing, scientists and forensic toxicologists critically evaluate the on-site devices currently available, their validation studies, and their use in a variety of settings. For each device, the expert contributors discuss its principles, materials and reagents, procedures and interpretation, and performance. The tests applied include both therapeutic drugs (lipid-lowering medications, antithrombotic medications, and anticoagulant drugs) at the point of clinical care and drugs of abuse (alcohol, amphetamines, benzodiazepines, cannabinoids, cocaine, and opiates) in the workplace and the criminal justice system. The well-versed contributors also address critical issues in sample collection and adulteration, and in program standards and legal requirements in workplace testing. Comprehensive and authoritative, On-Site Drug Testing illuminates the state of on-site drug testing today, and provides all those responsible a firm basis for choosing the best test devices and techniques most suited to their purposes.

Editorial Reviews

Foreword by Dr. Bryan Finkle"This book would appeal to anyone with an interest in on-site drug testing -- from employers to worried parents, criminal justice workers, anxious new employees, laboratorians (all levels, from technical staff up to directors of laboratories), toxicologists, etc. This book contains 18 chapters that cover in detail all available on-site drug testing devices and relevant aspects. A nice feature is an early chapter discussing the pharmacokinetics of the drugs assayed, and interpretation of results depending on the time of ingestion versus the time of testing. As a laboratory director, I greatly appreciate the discussion regarding nonlaboratorian test personnel and the as-to-be-expected relatively worse performance when compared to laboratorians (i.e., more result variability and related issues including substandard documentation). As a parent, I enjoyed reading the many chapters devoted to specific devices, discussions of the underlying technology, and review of the devices' performance in actual use. There is a great final chapter listing all the various substances that can cause interference and alter the test result. This book should really be titled "Anything you ever wanted to know about do-it-yourself drug testing." The book is easy to read and understand, and would appeal to nontechnically trained audience (e.g., parents, police officers, lawyers, etc.). I really like this book! It's going up on the bookshelf for easy access next time I have to discuss the results of an on-site test relative to that generated by my clinical laboratory."-Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal"On -Site Drug Testing is the only current reference book devoted to this topic. The book has 18 chapters, each written by one or more well-known experts in workplace drug testing. The book's editors and most of the chapters authors are forensic toxicologists....On-Site Drug Testing is a reference book that will be most useful for forensic toxicologists." - Medical Review Officer Update"...The eighteen chapters successfully review all aspects of on-site drug testing from the needs of many various programs, evaluation of devices and and test kits, and the legal and medical contexts that form the background against which this science must be applied. The authors are international authorities with a huge aggregate professional experience in analytical toxicology of alcohol and drug detection in biological specimens. They provide for the careful reader a critical review, conclusions, and recommendations concerning the present status and future viability of point-of-care, on-site testing...On-Site Drug Testing is timely and will serve as a landmark in the progress of this science."-From the Foreword by Bryan S. Finkle, PhD, DABFT, Consulting Forensic Toxicologist, Cameron, MT"On-Site Drug Testing is a reference book that will be most useful for forensic toxicologists. MROs who provide consultative services, including program development and expert testimony, will also find it a useful and perhaps necessary part of their library." -MRO Update"The book is also to be commended on its use of product contact details and on the clarity of its writing throughout. It is well writtena nd very readbale and so is auseful first text for anyone wanting to gain more general information on on-site testing or when selecting which of the test kis they are considering . " -British Toxicological Society Newsletter"The book is also to be commended on its use of product contact details and on the clarity of its writing throughout. It is well written and very readable and so is a useful first text for anyone wanting to gain more general information on on-site testing or when selecting which of the test kits they are considering using. I thought the length was appropriate and price reasonable..." - Newsletter of the British Toxicological Society"Comprehensive and authoritative, On-Site Drug Testing illuminates the state of on-site drug testing today, and provides all those responsible a firm basis for choosing the best test devices and techniques most suited to their purposes." -Clinical Laboratory"...collects writings from some of the foremost experts in analytic toxicology and the jurisprudence of drug testing. This collected work adequately covers the subject. It provides a source book for persons interested in what products are available to accomplish the testing, as well as a general framework for some of the issues involved in accomplishing the testing. It is also an important source of data for the attorney defending or attacking the credibility of on-site testing." -Anil Aggrawal's Internet Journal of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology
