Chemical engineers are making it easier for biomedical companies to make drug testing more efficient and affordable. PHD’s out of Harvard have created printer-based 3D printed cartridges that work well for the detection of THC, marijuana derivatives and others. The work of these scientists can be used to detect the presence of drug and drug derivatives in urine and blood easily and effectively and cheaply.
Drug testing as of now works in a multitude of steps, the step that usually involves testing a lot of candidates to test the differences in-between. These sorts of tests are very inaccurate and tend to be costly and the such, for this reason subsequent testing mechanisms now use much more reliable methods of drug testing that now bind to molecules in the blood or urine itself and stages it using the said molecules.
This sort of mechanism is usually quite slow and produces inaccurate results, sometimes the accuracy degrades to as much as 95% of drug testing results end up being quite useless, the reasons why this sort of drug testing mechanism tends to fail is due to the fact that the candidate drugs inside of the bloodstream end up clumping together and causing the target molecule to be destroyed by the liver or the kidneys. These inaccuracies can only be taken out by a slower and expensive type of screening that doesn’t work well most of the time.
For this reason, the new drug testing technologies have been focused on alleviating these pressing issues via the usage of nano-bots and other sorts of induced technology to make sure that drug testing gets more efficient and affordable as time goes along.
