This toolkit provides a consolidation of the research project’s outcomes into a comprehensive document detailing the relevant information about the characterization of anticoagulant compounds, it includes basic drug information, chemical structure, clinical effects, forensic casework regarding anticoagulant, methods for identification and confirmation, along with other information.
This toolkit is designed to serve as an all-encompassing resource for scientists and interested individuals who are looking for definitive information about anticoagulant compounds. Its objective is to notify public health and safety, law enforcement, first responders, clinicians, medical examiners and coroners, forensic and clinical laboratory personnel, and other related communities, about the adulteration of synthetic cannabinoid material with anticoagulants. The toolkit includes basic drug information, chemical structure, clinical effects, forensic casework regarding anticoagulant, methods for identification and confirmation, and is divided into the following sections: an introduction to superwarfarin; chemical structures of anticoagulant drugs; test results for anticoagulant drugs and commercial products; analytical method, dye analysis in commercial rodenticide products; analytical methods, qualitative screening for seized material; sample preparation of seized material; analytical methods, qualitative screening for biological matrices; sample preparation, screening of biological matrices; and analytical methods, confirmation in biological matrices.
