First responders, remediation workers, and other personnel frequently encounter clandestine methamphetamine (meth) labs or previous meth lab sites while performing their everyday jobs. National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) researchers developed a real-time method for detecting methamphetamine on surfaces for use by these workers. This case study describes how a federal agency developed and field-tested this innovative technology and collaborated with a private sector partner to commercialize and market the technology and the impact these actions had on its transfer and adoption.
