Everyone who ate the school cafeteria's chili became ill. Could someone have tainted the chili? You are a forensic toxicologist. You must determine if any of the chili ingredients from the cafeteria could have been substituted with aspirin, which appears to have been stolen from the nurse's office. You will perform a series of lab tests, including tests on control acetylsalicylic acid, the chemical name of aspirin.
This Forensic Chemistry of Drug Detection Kit contains enough material for 15 groups of students. A teacher's manual and reproducible student study guide are included.
Safety gear, specifically gloves, goggles, and apron, are recommended. You provide distilled water.
Forensic chemistry drug detection (drug analysis) is used in sports, police investigations, and by environmental scientists to test for herbicides and pesticides. Scientists who use chemistry to find evidence are called forensic analysts. Forensic analysis is an increasingly important field with many applications.
WARNING: This product can expose you to Aspirin, which is known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm.
