Drugs of Abuse

Thermo Fisher Scientific’s dedicated drugs of abuse applications team recently has developed several key quantitative analysis workflows using Orbitrap technology with the Thermo Scientific Exactive, Exactive Plus and Q Exactive mass spectrometers. These solutions demonstrate the analytical specificity, sensitivity and dynamic range for quantitative analysis in body fluids such as urine, plasma, serum, whole blood, and oral fluid. The unique ability to perform Quanfirmation™ (quantitative analysis with qualitative confirmation of identity) workflows very effectively sets Orbitrap technology apart from all others.
The number of quantitative analysis workflows is growing rapidly. Currently, the solutions cover forensic screening and quantitation of many classes of drugs. Click on the links below to view the comprehensive workflows for drugs of abuse research.
