• Mission:– SensAbues offers a collection device , DrugTrap ® , for drug substances and biomarkers. – SensaAbues makes it possible to simply take a sample of the breath air to be analyzed by a labwith LC‐MSMS.
Content of breath• VOC volatile organic compounds– Hydrocarbons, alcohols, ketones, aldehydes, esters• Small inorganic compounds– O2, CO2, CO, NO, COS, H2O2• Non‐volatile organic compounds– Isoprostanes, cytokines, leukotrienes• Profiles differ between disease and healthyconditions

With the use of synthetic drugs like K2 and bath salts onthe rise, Hendricks said many students are able to passdrug tests because those drugs do not show up on anormal test, because it only tests for organic drugs suchas marijuana.Takes 1 – 2 years to develop a new test agent.“They should be testing for synthetic drugs,” he said. “Butit is much more expensive to test for synthetic drugs.”DrugTrap + LC-MSMS identify them all !
