    Abstract

    Extraction techniques are an important aspect of forensic toxicology, providing the starting point for drug identification and quantitation. They must be rapid and efficient, giving good recoveries of as wide a range of drugs as possible, and provide clean extracts. There is at present no method for extracting postmortem tissue that fulfills these requirements.
