Polymer Wet Wipe May Be a Huge Benefit to First Responders

The opiod crisis in the United States has been nothing short of an epidemic, causing many researchers to turn their attention to solutions to help ease its impact. A Department of Polymer Science associate professor at the University of Akron, along with his colleagues, is developing a polymer “wet wipe” that will assist first responders in the detection of opiods in the system of a user. The “wet wipe” would be rubbed on the skin and would change color with the presence of heroin or fentanyl. The ease of use and quick analysis for first responders would be a huge benefit.
