This presentation will provide a brief overview of the major classes of NPS identified in seized drugs in Queensland and will outline how these different classes have emerged over the past ten years. Current NPS trends in the Queensland drug market, including synthetic cathinones and designer benzodiazepines, will also be discussed.

Karen Blakey has worked in the Queensland Health Illicit Drug group for more than 20 years. The Illicit Drug group consists of 22 chemists and while NPS account for only a very small component of seized drugs in Queensland, they have presented scientific challenges and led to new testing processes to ensure we identify new compounds when they come on to the market.
