But there are many ways around this test, explained Plaxco, and some cocaine manufacturers add a chemical to block the color change. "Our sensor can detect cocaine no m...

Researchers develop portable 'vein finder' for faster, more accurate injections

...altering wavelengths and frequency. For example, a police radar gun sends microwave signals to a moving car, and when signals bounce back, the change in their frequency provides a measurement used to determine the vehicle's speed. Doppler ultrasound is similar, except that acoustical waves are transmitted...
