Abstract:  The design and preliminary characterization of a novel sensor for drugs of abuse, DETECHIP®, is described in this proof‐of‐concept note. Combining both colorimetric and fluorimetric assays, DETECHIP® is suitable for lab and field use. More than a conventional spot test which provides a single “yes or no” answer, DETECHIP® provides twenty responses for a more complete characterization of suspect material. This is accomplished by visually noting colorimetric and fluorescent changes of… Expand

Detechip®: Developing a molecular sensing device
TLDR
Results from NMR, UV-VIS and fluorimetry studies suggest that the color and fluorescence changes are a result of intermolecular interaction between the analytes and sensors ranging from non-covalent covalent bonding of supramolecular structure to proton exchange between the Analyte and sensor molecules. Expand
Developing a Color-Based Molecular Sensing Device : DETECHIP ®
DETECHIP® is a detection system made of various sensors that has been shown to detect and discriminate between small molecules of interest, including various illicit drugs for and over-the-counterExpand
DETECHIP®: An Improved Molecular Sensing Array
DETECHIP ® is a novel, highly selective and sensitive molecular sensor array producing color and fluorescence changes in the presence of many small molecules or analytes. This technology utilizes anExpand
Detecting Concentration of Analytes with DETECHIP: A Molecular Sensing Array
TLDR
This detection assay can detect concentration differences in analytes via red, green, and blue color value changes and shifts in the UV-Vis spectra of the assay, expanding the capability of DETECHIP to give information about the concentration of analyte when the analyte identity is known. Expand
Improved image analysis of DETECHIP® allows for increased specificity in drug discrimination.
TLDR
New digital color image analysis techniques using red-green-blue (RGB) color values provided a higher degree of specificity and greater consistency, and was able to detect more subtle changes in color and was therefore able to properly discriminate between substances that previously produced identical codes. Expand
Image Analysis of DETECHIP® – A Molecular Sensing Array
TLDR
It is determined that when compared to photographs, scanned images of DETECHIP® gave better results through the elimination of parallax and shading that lead to inconsistent results. Expand
Analysis of Powders Containing Illicit Drugs Using Magnetic Levitation.
TLDR
Initial separation with MagLev, followed by characterization by FTIR-ATR, enabled identification of fentanyl in a sample of fentanyl-laced heroin, and enables confirmatory identification based on structure-specific techniques. Expand
Reactive Arrays of Colorimetric Sensors for Metabolite and Steroid Identification
TLDR
The work described herein examines a rapid mix-and-measure method called DETECHIP suitable for screening of steroids and metabolites and generates characteristic color “fingerprints” that were used to identify the analyte. Expand
A review of chemical 'spot' tests: A presumptive illicit drug identification technique.
TLDR
This paper reviews the development of these long-established color test methods, suggests the future of presumptive color testing, and summarizes current research. Expand
Digital Image Analysis for DETCHIP® Code Determination.
TLDR
It was determined that the flatbed scanner produced in the clearest and more reproducible images, and codes obtained using a macro written for use within ImageJ showed improved consistency versus pervious methods. Expand

Validation of twelve chemical spot tests for the detection of drugs of abuse.
TLDR
These chemical spot tests were found to be very sensitive with limits of detection typically 1 to 50 microg depending on the test and the analyte. Expand
Modified Cobalt Thiocyanate Presumptive Color Test for Ketamine Hydrochloride
TLDR
A new presumptive color test for ketamine hydrochloride is reported, a modification of the cobalt thiocyanate test currently used for cocaine and involves basifying samples rather than acidifying them. Expand
Evaluation of immunoassay methods for detection, in urine, of drugs subject to abuse.
TLDR
Judicious use of immunochemistry, spectrofluorimetry, and thin-layer chromatography to the detection of psychoactive drugs in urine permits rapid, reliable, and effective surveillance of drug use or abuse. Expand
Deposition of 7-aminoflunitrazepam and flunitrazepam in hair after a single dose of Rohypnol.
TLDR
To determine whether flunitrazepam and its major metabolite 7-aminoflunitsepam could be detected in hair collected from ten healthy volunteers after receiving a single 2 mg dose of Rohypnol using solid phase extraction and NCI-GC-MS, and to determine the best time interval for hair collection from a victim of drug-facilitated sexual assault, is studied. Expand
A comparison between on-site immunoassay drug-testing devices and laboratory results.
TLDR
It was possible to detect amphetamines and opiates in oral fluid by the used on-site devices, but the benzodiazepines and cannabinoids did not fulfil the needs of sensitivity. Expand
Highly sensitive micro-plate enzyme immunoassay screening and NCI-GC-MS confirmation of flunitrazepam and its major metabolite 7-aminoflunitrazepam in hair.
TLDR
To determine if a commercially available micro-plate enzyme immunoassay system was sufficiently sensitive for the routine screening of 7-AFN in hair by the development of extraction procedures and optimization of the immunoASSay kit, a replicate analysis of controls was performed to establish inter- and intraday variabilities.

TLDR
A fast liquid chromatographic method with tandem diode array-fluorescence detection for the simultaneous determination of in total 17 opium alkaloids and opioids is presented and its applicability was demonstrated by the analysis of real-time forensic cases. Expand

The use of in vivo antisense oligonucleotide technology for the investigation of brain GABAA receptors
TLDR
The reported data support the idea that antisense ODN can be used as a valuable tool for the investigation of the contribution of individual GABAA receptor subunits to the properties of the receptor complex and of mechanisms of receptor subunit assembly. Expand
