Since 2016, scientists at the CFSRE have been working on the assessment of portable tools for the analysis of seized material in the field. Additionally, the CFSRE is committed to evaluating new and emerging technology with forensic chemistry applications designed to streamline workflows or improve analytical capabilities.
The research on emerging technologies for seized drugs being conducted by the CFSRE includes development and validation of methods as part of the assessment of new instrumentation. The CFSRE has assessed a Portable Quadrupole-Based Gad Chromatography Mass Spectrometry for analysis of drugs and adulterants.
