What is Benzodiazepines assay used for?
The benzodiazepine family has a diverse chemical structure which gives rise to a range of physio-chemical and pharmacological properties. In general, they are extensively metabolized by dealkylation, hydroxylation, oxidation and glucuronidation in the liver.
Benzodiazepines have a range of physio-chemical and pharmacological properties. When benzodiazepines are used recreationally the effects can be sedating and intoxicating, however the consumption of these drugs can lead to a number of problems such as physical and psychological dependence, depression, anxiety and insomnia.
