The evolving nature of designer drugs makes identifying them an ongoing game of cat and mouse between the criminals that manufacture them and law enforcement organizations around the world. With the introduction of high potency synthetic opioids, such as fentanyl, street drugs are becoming more lethal while simultaneously becoming harder to identify. These low concentrations of controlled substances in street level drugs pose a challenge for law enforcement officers as traditional methods and technologies struggle to identify the trace amounts of narcotics present.

By attending this webinar, you will learn about:

  • The unique detection challenges synthetic designer drugs pose to law enforcement.

  • The increased availability of controlled substances with the Dark Web.

  • How MX908 excels at identifying street drugs at low concentration, but high potency narcotic mixtures.

  • Current trends in synthetic designer drugs in pill form.

  • Case studies where trace detection with the MX908 led to seizures, arrests, and intelligence gathering.
