Development of a Low-cost Portable Sensor for Detection of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in Saliva
AbstractThe design of a swab-based detector was developed for the detection of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in saliva. A gas sensor was used to differentiate among different concentrations of THC in water. The results show the initial proof of concept in detecting the presence of the THC. Further development is required to differentiate THC from other volatile organic compounds (VOC). Recommendations moving forward include integrating a microchannel and VOC filtering systems into the design to obtain a more selective device.
