With submissions of partial counterfeit tablets, there may be the risk that the portion submitted isn't representative of a whole tablet.

Cross-contamination risk for this sample: High
Dec 22 2020: The clonazolam in this tablet was originally undetected. The original sample came in as a quarter of a tablet. Via GC/MS at our lab, nothing besides a weak fentanyl signal was detected. The sender had more of the sample (pulverized at this point) and since they had gotten three positives for benzos with BTNX benzo strips (like BTNX fentanyl test strips, but for benzodiazepines), they sent in the rest of the material to see if the lab could detect a benzo in a different portion of the sample.

(see Fentanyl Test Strips, Hot Spots, and Unhomogenized Samples)

Our lab was able to detect clonazolam in the second portion of the tablet after consultation with another Schedule I licensed analytical lab.

The lab is going to go back through the clonazolam tablets we've received in the last year and try different techniques to see if we can learn anything about these strange and disconcerting results.
Partial tablet accepted for testing by prior approval.
