Breakthrough Test Detects Heroin and Cocaine From a Fingerprint

American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC)

.A fingerprint test published today in AACC’s Clinical Chemistry journal can tell whether someone has taken heroin or cocaine, and accurately distinguishes between drug users versus individuals who were exposed to drug residue in the environment. This breakthrough study brings fingerprint drug testing one step closer to clinical adoption, which could revolutionize drug testing by making it both simpler and nearly impossible to cheat.

Breaking Research That Could Improve Treatment of Pregnancy Complications Published in AACC’s The Journal of Applied Laboratory Medicine

American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC)

A study in AACC’s The Journal of Applied Laboratory Medicine has for the first time established female-specific reference ranges for several biological variables that play key roles in thrombosis—or blood clotting—during pregnancy. This research could help lower the high U.S. maternal death rate by enabling more precise identification of pregnant women at risk for thrombosis-related complications such as preeclampsia.
