The challenges of forensic toxicology
Forensic laboratories are frequently required to perform comprehensive screening of complex samples to identify drugs and other toxicants. This is a very challenging task due to the enormous number of analytes covered, their wide range of concentration and the complexity of sample matrices tested. Within the field of forensic toxicology, there is high requirement for analytical certainty in the accuracy and completeness of the results, so as to ensure that they will stand up to scrutiny in a court of law.
The benefits of QTOF technology for toxicological drug screening
In recent years, owing to the high level of specificity and sensitivity obtained from full scan exact mass data acquisition, the utilization of Quadrupole Time-of-Flight (QTOF) technology for forensic toxicology screening has increased. Furthermore, the ability to retrospectively interrogate data for unexpected compounds, or emergent new "designer" drugs has significantly increased the uptake and adoption of this technology. The application of QTOF technology for toxicological drug screening therefore offers forensic toxicologists a comprehensive solution for both targeted and nontargeted screening workflows.
