How Long Is Your Trip? Analysing the Micros and Heroics of Psychedelics
Psychedelics are a diverse group of drugs that are known for their ability to alter consciousness, perception, mood, and thought. Detecting the presence, quantity and quality of these compounds is crucial to research development and involves various analytical tools such as High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) with optical or mass detectors, and other instruments types. These analytical tests are performed for a variety of reasons, including product, drug, or safety testing, all of which are subject to regulations and guidelines set by the licensing authorities. Besides the regulations, we face several other challenges with psychedelic analysis, such as the lack of standardized testing methods, difficulties in sample preparation, and analyte stability.
During this webinar we will explore:
- The testing methods used for psychedelic drug analysis, including the headlining compounds of LSD, psilocybin, and MDMA.
- Ideas to improve our analytical techniques to ensure the most accurate and reliable testing of psychedelic drugs.
