Review of: On-Site Drug Testing
This book is a comprehensive work on the history, development, and techniques involved in testing for drugs of abuse in the workplace. Those individuals who are just getting into the field of on-site drug testing as well as those routinely involved will find something of interest contained in this volume. The first chapter introduces the reader to point of care testing (POCT) and the decision making processes involved with selection and use of drug testing technology. The book proceeds with discussions of the testing used in therapeutic drug monitoring, chapters on the testing technologies themselves and concludes with a review of studies completed on the reliability of noninstrumented drug testing (NIDT) devices and finally a discussion of sample adulteration and the consequences to on-site drug testing.
