Enabling LC/MS/MS solutions to push the limits in toxicology and drug testing

Five percent of the world's population over the age of 15 are using illicit drugs, and several hundred thousands of drug intoxications are reported annually in the Western world alone. Forensic scientists and law enforcement agencies require screening methods used in forensic intoxication cases to be highly-sensitive and fast.

Today, LC/MS/MS is the preferred method of analysis for forensic toxicology over traditional analysis techniques – both qualitative and quantitative.  Providing better sensitivity, LC/MS/MS requires less sample preparation and no derivitization, in less time.

Innovative LC/MS/MS technology from AB SCIEX delivers superior accuracy, sensitivity, and higher throughput. Our unique hybrid triple quadrupole/linear ion-trap (QTRAP® System) technologies enable rapid screening, identification, and quantitation of hundreds of compounds in a single analysis.
