Redwood Toxicology Laboratory Expands Service Line; Announces New Lab Test For GHB "Date Rape Drug" & Fentanyl
SANTA ROSA, California, September 19, 2007 - Redwood Toxicology Laboratory, Inc. (RTL) now offers a new lab-based urine test for the detection of gamma hydroxybutyric acid (GHB). GHB is typically associated with sexual assault or as a "date rape" drug due to its severe hypnotic and sedative effect at higher dosages.
RTL also offers a urine test for the detection of Fentanyl. Fentanyl is a fast-acting synthetic narcotic analgesic. RTL utilizes sensitive and specific equipment and technology, gas chromatography/mass spectrometry, to confirm and quantitate GHB and Fentanyl. This methodology provides highly accurate results. As with all of RTL's testing options, full customer support is provided.
"This is an exciting year for RTL. The addition of GHB and Fentanyl to our service line provides our clients with the option to perform more robust drug testing," said Albert Berger, RTL's President. "Earlier this year we announced our steroid testing. Ethyl glucuronide (EtG), another specialty test, is also a popular option. We will continue to add new, reliable tests to meet client demand."
Other laboratory services include; drugs of abuse urine and oral fluid testing, and urine testing for ethyl glucuronide (EtG) and steroids. On-site drug testing products for professional use include; the Reditest® RediCup®, Reditest® Panel-Dip, Reditest® On-Site Oral, Reditest® Alcohol Saliva, Reditest® 6 Cassette (CLIA waived), Reditest® Alcohol Breath and Reditest® Smoke Cassette (Cotinine).
