ASU Student Helped Develop New Drug Test

NOVEMBER 14, 2006 - Posted at 7:53 a.m. CST

 

HOT SPRINGS (AP) - A drug test that could provide results while a driver waits with an officer alongside a road is the result of a study project by a student at the Arkansas High School for Mathematics, Sciences and the Arts. Marc Hosken, a senior at the Hot Springs school, says the test is not only faster and easier to administer than currently available methods, it's also foolproof.

Hosken says the new oral-based test can be observed directly. Traditional urine tests aren't directly observed and a subject can cheat by diluting or substituting the specimen. But neither are possible with the test developed by Hosken and a student at Arkansas State University.
