    Abstract

    Progress in the development of analytical methods has enabled the forensic toxicologist to detect and quantitate morphine in blood from the deceased narcotic addict. Techniques such as gas chromatography [1,2], radioimmunoassay [3–5], and spectrophotofluorometry [6,7] are adequate in terms of sensitivity and specificity. A comparison of three methods has also appeared [8].
