Toxtyper – a Comprehensive LC-MS Screening Solution for Clinical and Forensic Toxicology
A major task for toxicology research is the reliable, fast and comprehensive identification of drugs and drugs of abuse (DOA). Current techniques such as GC-MS, LC-UV/ DAD and immunoassays have several limitations. Liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) is an emerging technology that is more specific than immunoassays, provides more information than LC-UV/DAD detection, and covers a broader range of compounds than GC-MS.
Here we describe a robust and automates research based screening solution based on the latest LC-MS n ion trap technology that promises to provide a combination of the highest performance LC-MS/MS and easy-to-use identification with the greatest transferability of results from lab to lab.
