6-Monoacetylmorphine (6-MAM)

Rapid CDIATM Morphine Test kits are intended to screen for the presence of morphine in human urine/saliva.

6-Monoacetylmorphine (6-MAM) or 6-acetylmorphine (6-AM) is one of three active metabolites of heroin (diacetylmorphine), the others being morphine and the much less active 3-monoacetylmorphine (3-MAM).The production of black tar heroin results in significant amounts of 6-MAM in the final product. 6-MAM is approximately 30 percent more active than diacetylmorphine itself,[citation needed] This is why despite lower heroin content, black tar heroin may be more potent than some other forms of heroin.
