Eighty drugs of abuse and metabolites were successfully measured by surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) using gold- and silver-doped sol-gels immobilized in glass capillaries.

This general method was successfully applied to the detection of a number of additional drugs in saliva, such as amphetamine, diazepam, and methadone.
