Overview

Forensic labs are improving throughput and eliminating backlog by using DART.  Presentation of sample and standards is routine and requires just seconds per sample to determine quantity and quality of seized narcotics and OTC drugs of abuse.  Synthetic cannabinoids and bath salts are easily detected and identified with confirmation using simple mass spectrometry methods and comparison with NIST library standards.  Explosives, arson, counterfeit currency, tax stamps and even drugs in body fluids present no problem for the DART equipped laboratory.  The new mobile DART permits a more aggressive sampling protocol for analysis of contaminated meth production facilities wherever they may be.
