IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Immunoassay, Drug-of-Abuse, Lysergic Acid Diethylamide
Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative analyses on a body fluid sample (e.g., urine, serum) to determine lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), a synthetic hallucinogenic drug prepared from the alkaloids of a fungus. LSD produces mood changes, sensory distortions, hallucinations, delusions, and depersonalization. Physical or physiological dependence on LSD is rare. Both LSD and its metabolite 2-oxohydroxy-LSD (O-H-LSD), which is the main metabolite and present for a longer time than LSD, can also be measured using chromatographic methods. Reagents for LSD determination are used to diagnose intoxication caused by intentional or, less frequently, accidental ingestion.
