INTRODUCTION

Bath salts are synthetic stimulants closely related to amphetamines and hallucinogens in chemical structure and physiological effect.  Despite recent legislative efforts to keep bath salts off the shelves of gas stations and convenience stores around the country, these popular drugs of abuse have quickly garnered sensationalized media attention due in large part to their rampant uptake and the inherent dangers of their misuse.  

METHODS OF ANALYSIS

PremierTox Laboratory has developed proprietary testing methodology for many of the active ingredients in bath salts, known as synthetic cathinones. The PremierTox Expanded Synthetic Cathinones Panel tests for some of the most prolific synthetic stimulants at clinically relevant detection levels to support your efforts in remaining vigilant against illicit drug use in your community.
