With new and emerging drugs coming out every day, the Special Forensic Toxicology Drug Testing Laboratory (SFTDTL) at the Armed Forces Medical Examiner System here, is designed to ensure service members are not getting away with gaining access to them. SFTDTL is one of three Department of Defense laboratories that are certified to test for synthetic cannabinoids, commonly referred to as Spice drugs. They use what is called liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry to identify and quantify substances based upon their unique structural and chemical properties. The process gives an exact fingerprint of a substance. It is useful in drug testing laboratories because there is no cross-reactivity with other drugs since every drug has its own unique structure and chemical properties. Hence, only the drug of interest in a solution will be identified and quantified.
