A new line of 14 certified Snap-N-Spike solutions of phenethylamines from Cerilliant, Round Rock, Tex, are suitable for numerous applications in GC/MS or LC-MS/MS testing, including urine drug monitoring, forensic testing, and clinical toxicology analysis. Phenethylamines—including the major structural analogs ring-substituted D amphetamines, 2C amine analogs, and dibenzofurans—are a class of hallucinogenic and stimulant drugs that are frequently sold over the Internet as substitutes for LSD and ecstasy. The US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) recently expanded the list of Schedule I substances to include 12 additional 2C amines. Phenethylamines present significant analytic challenges for laboratories that conduct screening by means of immunoassays rather than GC/MS or LC-MS/MS techniques. These reference materials provide ultrapure, fully characterized materials certified to industry standards, including ISO Guide 34, ISO/IEC 17025, and ISO 13485.
