Analysis Comparison of Street Fentanyl

During an incident at a suburban residence, a local HazMat team seized a small sample of what appeared to be street fentanyl. After an independent laboratory verified the presence of fentanyl, we were asked to participate in a technology comparison. We evaluated the effectiveness of three portable techniques: Raman, FT-IR, and high-pressure mass spectrometryTM (HPMS).

“In the past 10 years we’ve seen a stark pivot in how fentanyl is being used. What was originally developed to help cancer patients combat pain is now being mixed into drugs such as heroin and cocaine, often unbeknownst to the buyer, for a cheaper sale,” said Dr. Christina Baxter, CEO of Emergency Response Tips, LLC and former Program Manager for the Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosives (CBRNE) subgroup at the Technical Support Working Group (TSWG). “As this problem has grown into an epidemic, new and innovative technologies will be instrumental in protecting first responders and communities from these threats and fighting this battle head on.”
