Webinar: High-Res Mass Spec for Detecting Fentanyl Analogues

ForensicED recently announced a webinar, "Power of High Res Mass Spec to Detect Fentanyl Analogues," scheduled for July 27, 2017. This webinar will summarize the pharmacology of NPFs, trends of abuse, and explore novel techniques for the analysis of NPFs in forensic toxicology casework using Quadrupole Time-of-Flight (Q-TOF) mass spectrometry applications.

The number of opioid overdoses in the United States has dramatically increased over the past few years. The abuse of heroin and synthetic opioids such as fentanyl and its analogues are major contributors to this epidemic. Non-pharmaceutical fentanyls (NPFs) such as carfentanil, furanyl fentanyl, acetyl fentanyl, fluoroisobutyryl fentanyl, and other novel opioids such as U-47700 and 4-ANPP are being routinely encountered in forensic toxicology and drug chemistry casework. Furthermore, the webinar will highlight prevalence statistics from Alabama, Palm Beach County, and other laboratories.
