Methamphetamines - Method 9109

 

2009
NIOSH Docket Number 177

Proposed NIOSH 9109 for Methamphetamine and Illicit Drugs, Precursors, and Adulterants on Wipes by Solid Phase Extraction Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) is a sampling and analytical method that will be included in the NIOSH Manual of Analytical Methods, 5th edition. Two other proposed methamphetamine wipe methods will also be included. NIOSH 9106 is a Liquid-Liquid Extraction Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) method and NIOSH 9111 is a Liquid Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (LC/MS) method. NIOSH 9109 has a quicker sample preparation time to run a larger number of samples, but has more problems with interferences than NIOSH 9106. NIOSH 9111 is quickest and least expensive of the three methods, but has only been evaluated for the measurement of methamphetamine and not other illicit drugs of interest.
