ASU's Biosciences Institute Helps Researchers Market Their Results

JANUARY 30, 2006 - Posted at 7:57 a.m. CST

 

JONESBORO, AR - The Biosciences Institute at Arkansas State University is conducting research that could lead to drug detection being as easy as taking a swipe of someone's perspiration or saliva.

Associate professor Robyn Hannigan says the test was developed to check nicotine levels when doing research on smoking.  She says the test can be expanded to test for marijuana or methamphetamine.

Hannigan patented the process and is now working to develop it into a working model for human testing.  She and her company, Hyphenated Solutions, Incorporated, have begun pursuing Federal Drug Administration tests on the technique.

Hannigan says the company hopes to make detection kits and market them to police departments.
