Background


gamma-Hydroxybutyrate (GHB) is a notorious drug implicated in numerous cases of sexual assault. The drug is difficult to detect because it is quickly metabolised and eliminated from the body so samples are required within eight hours of exposure or require a hair sample some time later. Both these samples require complex and time consuming laboratory based techniques to detect and quantify the GHB content.??


Technology


The technology represents a method for the production and purification of a protein that reacts with GHB converting it into a compound that can be detected using standard colometric assay techniques?.


Key Benefits


Sensitive assay technique for the detection and quantification of GHB?.


Method for the detection of GHB that is non-responsive to ethanol allowing for detection of the drug in drinks????.


The method offers cost savings over the currently employed laboratory based approaches??????.


Markets and Applications


Rapid laboratory based screening for forensic samples suspected of contai
