Acetyl fentanyl is a fentanyl analog previously undocumented in illicit drug use that is up to five times more potent than heroin. Acetyl fentanyl's enhanced potency has led to a number of reported deaths due to overdose. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends laboratories to provide analytical options for acetyl fentanyl in order to provide enhanced surveillance for healthcare providers.
