SCIEX to Introduce Benchtop High Resolution Mass Spec for Forensic Toxicology Analysis at TIAFT 2016 Meeting in Brisbane, Australia, Aug 28 – Sep 1, 2016
Guest presenters to demonstrate innovations around the application of LC-MS/MS in screening of drugs in biological samples and detection of alcohol consumption
In a workshop organised by SCIEX on the 31st of August, guest presenters from the Institute of Forensic Medicine, University of Bern, Switzerland, will present and discuss innovations around the application of liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry for forensic investigations. Marianne Hädener, who authored research around the use of LC-MS/MS in screening of biological samples for benzodiazepines and z-drugs, will present the competitive advantages of the LC-MS/MS approach over traditional immunoassay screening. Another guest presenter, Marc Luginbühl, also from the Institute of Forensic Medicine, University of Bern, Switzerland, will present on the application of LC-MS/MS for the detection of direct alcohol consumption markers. Alcohol markers are analysed in blood, urine and hair in order to prove alcohol abstinence or consumption. Adrian Taylor, the Forensic Technical Marketing Manager at SCIEX, will present on the X500R QTOF to demonstrate how laboratories tasked with detection of low levels of compounds in complex samples profile the composition of samples full of unknowns
The simplicity in X500R’s hardware and software design, combined with the system&'s balance of high performance and ease of use, enables confident results, regardless of the lab personnel’s skill sets. Improved workflows and robust performance of the system enable lab researchers to get the right results quickly, reliably, and with maximum uptime for all routine testing applications.
