About this Event

“What were they on?!”

Forensic Toxicology and the detection of trends in Novel Psychoactive Substance (NPS) and other illicit drug abuse in South Australia

Forensic Science SA’s Peter Stockham and Emma Partridge are Forensic Toxicologists with a keen interest in detecting emerging NPS and local drug trends.

They have extensive experience in development of advanced high resolution mass spectrometry techniques and sample preparation for routine toxicology applications. In recent times they have directed their skills toward detection of drugs in unusual intoxication cases presenting at hospital emergency departments, founding a collaborative project with 4 metropolitan hospitals with the aim of supplementing existing mechanisms monitoring drug trends in the community. They will present a background on forensic toxicology, the challenge of NPS detection and their findings to date.
