Aegis Sciences Corporation Announces Updates for NPS Testing

NASHVILLE, TN. (April 1, 2024) – Aegis Sciences Corporation, a health care testing lab based in Nashville, TN, is pleased to announce another expansion of novel psychoactive substance (NPS) testing for its clients. This update is a revision of the NPS test menu, to include the removal of analytes which have significantly decreased in prevalence, as well as the addition of new analytes which have entered circulation in the United States.

To stay current with the rapidly changing landscape of new and emerging drugs, Aegis recently committed to bi-annual NPS test menu updates to include the tier one and tier two recommendations established collaboratively by the Center for Forensic Science Research and Education (CFSRE) and the Society of Forensic Toxicologist (SOFT) NPS Committee. The CFSRE and the SOFT NPS Committee’s recommendations for NPS were designed to assist laboratories seeking guidance on which NPS and other emerging drugs they should test. Analytes in Aegis’s current method align with CFSRE’s Scope Recommendations for Quarter 4 of 2023.

“Our most recent update demonstrates our commitment to providing the most relevant testing available to healthcare providers," said Dr. Rebecca Heltsley, Senior Vice President, Research and Development at Aegis Sciences Corporation.
