a-PVP ELISA Available

α-PVP is the active ingredient in drugs commonly sold as "bath salts", "flakka" or "gravel" which have gained popularity since the mid-2000s due to their potency and low cost. α-PVP is a derivative of MDPV - the only difference being the removal of the 3,4-methylenedioxy group from the MDPV molecule. Bath salt blends such as α-PVP are manufactured in places like China and are marketed as alternatives to internationally controlled drugs that are often adulterated with other synthetic cathinones, methamphetamine or clonazepam. Reported effects of α-PVP include euphoria, increased alertness, tachycardia, hypertension, hyperthermia, diaphoresis, seizures and even cardiac arrest.
