EMSL Analytical Now Offers Environmental Drug Screen Assays


Advanced LC/MS/MS technologies used to identify host of illicit drugs.

EMSL Analytical, the leader in providing cutting edge laboratory services and products, is pleased to announce that analysis for environmental samples for a host prescription and illegal drugs is now available. The new analytical services provide an important tool in identifying drugs on both imported and domestic materials and consumables.

Utilizing advanced high performance liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) detection, EMSL is currently able to identify a multitude of drugs ranging from cocaine to valium. The demand for this type of service has emerged from concerns over tainted food products with prescription drugs to identifying imported goods that may be laced with illegal drugs or drug residues.

Environmental drug testing services are also commonly used to identify unidentified suspicious materials and as well as to verify that illicit drug manufacturing facilities and distribution points are properly remediated after they have been identified by law enforcement.

“Protecting consumers from tainted products containing potentially deadly narcotics is an important service we are pleased to provide,” reported Paul Cochrane, Director of Business Development at EMSL Analytical. “Whether the contamination is from a deliberate source, or accidental, the outcome can be potentially deadly to an unsuspecting public,” Mr. Cochrane went on to report.

The drug screen assay is for environmental samples only and EMSL is not providing drug testing services for human or clinical samples. To learn more about EMSL Analytical’s drug screening capabilities please contact EMSL at (800) 220-3675, or email
