What is Opiates assay used for?
Common opiates include morphine, codeine and heroin. Morphine and codeine are legal painkillers however they are frequently abused for their central nervous system effects. Recreational use of these drugs can have a number of negative side effects including seizures, insomnia and respiratory depression. The risks associated with heroin consumption are great. Heroin is highly addictive and when administered intravenously with non-sterile needles, there is the risk of contracting diseases such as HIV or hepatitis.
