USDTL has succeeded in improving their umbilical cord screening assay for buprenorphine by reducing the positive result cutoff from 1.0 ng/g down to 0.5 ng/g. The improved umbilical cord buprenorphine assay gives the best possible detection of buprenorphine exposure, making it possible to identify more newborns exposed to buprenorphine in utero.
USDTL is the first laboratory to be awarded specimens from the Virtual Repository of Dried Blood Spots, a new national database of dried blood spot specimens available for use in research.
USDTL researchers will investigate the relationship between in utero alcohol exposure and epigenetics using Small Business Innovation Research funding from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.
