Abstract:

The report details work conducted on a project designed to improve the sensitivity of a field test kit for detecting morphine in urine. Color reagents, extraction parameters and techniques were evaluated to improve the sensitivity to less than 1 ugml morphine in urine. Final evaluation of the redesigned field kit using spiked urine indicated the project was successful however, evaluation with user murine was inconclusive due to the shortage of a supply of fresh user urine.
