Abstract

The Second Edition of Handbook of Workplace Drug Testing builds on the knowledge included in the first edition and offers considerable updates and enhancements. It remains a valuable resource for understanding the complexity of the science, law, and interpretation of workplace drug testing. The information that has been compiled in the second edition was obtained through extensive laboratory study and literature surveys. As leaders in their fields, the authors provide a historical perspective of workplace drug testing, analytical procedures and theory, drug class overviews and stability of drugs, adulteration and specimen validity testing, alternative matrices, quality assurance and quality control, result interpretation for medical review officers, and laboratory accreditation. This book is a "must have" for all workplace drug testing laboratories and practitioners in forensic toxicology, clinical toxicology, and clinical chemistry. A complete subject index is included for easy referencing of topics.
