Determination of Iodinated Contrast Media in Aqueous Samples Using LC/MS/MS

Determination of iodinated contrast media in aqueous samples was performed by fast chromatography on an Agilent 1290 Infinity II LC coupled to an Agilent 6495 Triple Quadrupole LC/MS.


Extraction of Opiates from Whole Blood Using ISOLUTE® SLE+ Prior to GC/MS Analysis

This application note describes the extraction of opiate compounds from whole blood, prior to GC/MS analysis. This protocol also allows the simultaneous extraction of various other drugs of abuse classes: amphetamines, barbiturates, benzodiazepines and cocaine.


This online educational event will provide forensic scientists, toxicologists and other bioclinical scientists with updates and guidance on the latest methods, protocols, processes and applications of chromatography, mass spectrometry and related techniques. Topics covered include:

  • A Future for Dried Blood Spots in Forensic Toxicology?
  • The Use of Fully Automated Dried Blood Spot Extraction Protocols in Doping Controls
  • Automated Determination of Cannabinoids in Hair by SPE-GC-EI-MS/MS with Focus on THC-COOH and THC-OH
  • Rapid Update of Screening Methods for the Detection of New Psychoactive Substance Use in Human Urine by Software Assisted Metabolite Identification
  • Automation of Bidirectional Solid Phase Extraction (BDSPE) for Unattended Sample Preparation in Forensic Toxicology
  • Challenges in Postmortem Forensic Toxicology: Using LC-Ion Trap MS/MS as a Screening Tool to Identify New Illegal Synthetic Fentanyls in South Florida
