Drug test techniques and technologies have been pretty same for almost a great part of the human mankind. Techniques such as breathalysers or even blood tests have very common and familiar. It was due to these types of methods, by which how I passed my drug test. Thus, it was time to make new technologies for drug testing, and voila – a new way to test a drug that only requires your fingerprint has been invented. So, without further talking, let’s delve right into this new technology.
New Technology Guide That Is Re-Inventing Drug Testing
The technology that has been invented, is known as Paper Spray Mass Spectrometry. This method can detect the drug in your body only the via the use of your fingerprint. If you’ve taken drugs, your body will surely metabolise it and thus excretes molecules. These molecules can be detected via your fingerprint using mass spectrometry.
This type of method works even after one washes his or her hands, so one cannot merely come clean. Also, researchers have touted 99 per cent accuracy rate. It can detect various types of drugs including cocaine, heroin, etc.
What Are The Advantages?
This test is definitely very fast and can register results in a matter of just minutes. Apart from being quick in judgement, this method is also very much accurate as well. There’s no way one could fool this system, unlike in urine tests where a person could use other people’s urine to pass the test. Some big advantages are :
This drug testing is still yet to be tested on drivers though. But still, this method has truly revolutionised the way we see and perform drug tests.
