Drug Monitoring, Testing and Detection

Improving patient care drives you. Delivering high-quality assays for drug monitoring and detection drives us.

Improving patient care is important for every healthcare professional. One way to improve the delivery of patient care is through drug therapy. Therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) is used to ensure drug levels are maintained within a specific therapeutic range to maximize the drug's clinical effect and minimize its adverse effects.

Outside of therapeutic uses, drugs can also be abused, often with harmful consequences. An estimated 247 million people worldwide used illicit drugs at least once in the past year and 29 million of whom suffer from drug-use disorders. Yet, only one out of every six people with a drug-use disorder is in treatment.1

Laboratories can support therapeutic drug monitoring care and meet testing demands for drugs-of-abuse detection with Beckman Coulter’s comprehensive Theapeutic Drug Monitoring and Drug of Abuse Testing assay menus.
