Firm develops saliva test to detect drugsThe Detroit News
David Schneider, associate professor of neuropharmacology at Wayne State , is the founder of a Troy company that has developed a drug test utilizing the power of an advanced scientific instrument to analyze saliva. Schneider has applied for more than two dozen patents for test kits used for collecting and handling saliva samples that can be analyzed by a mass spectrometer. Such tests can be used to test for drugs and the procedure is much faster than the traditional urine-sample method. The WSU professor also is working on tests that could provide early detection of cancer.
