Abstract : The report details work conducted on a project designed to determine the feasibility of development of a simple, inexpensive field test kit for detecting cocaine, barbiturates and amphetamines in urine. Color reagents, extraction techniques and detection techniques were evaluated to produce a prototype kit capable of detecting cocaine, barbiturates, and amphetamines at levels of one microgram drug/ml urine or less. Prototype kits capable of 200 assessments have been assembled and are being submitted for evaluation. (Author)
