Developed in conjunction with front-line researchers in the toxicology field, the method analyzes several classes of substances. LC/MS MRM optimization has been performed for common drugs of abuse, hypnotics, psychotropics, pharmaceuticals and other natural toxins. Shimadzu’s Ultra-Fast MS technology enables triggered product ion scans, which provide MS/MS data during MRM acquisition.
By incorporating established calibration curves, this screening system provides laboratories the ability to perform semi-quantitative analysis without purchasing dozens of costly standards. Also included is an optimized sample preparation protocol for toxicology screening based on QuEChERS*. From sample preparation to reporting, a total solution for toxicology screening is provided.
Registered substances include 161 compounds of illicit drugs, Hypnotics, psychotropics, pharmaceuticals and others that are often analyzed in the forensic medicine field.* QuEChERS (Quick, Easy, Cheap, Effective, Rugged, Safe) was developed by Anastassiades et al in 2003 as a sample preparation method for residual pesticide analysis in agricultural products.
