Thermo Fisher Scientific Launches EasyTox 2.5 Toxicology GC/MS Solution
Product News Nov 25, 2008
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. announces the launch of the new EasyTox™ 2.5 GC/MS productivity solution for routine drugs of abuse analysis.
Incorporating the Thermo Scientific ToxLab™ Forms 2.5 software, the company has designed the EasyTox 2.5 platform to reduce costs, increase sample throughput and improve productivity in forensic and clinical laboratories performing analysis of urine for signs of drugs of abuse.
The fully integrated solution combines the Thermo Scientific DSQTM II single quadrupole GC/MS system with the new ToxLab Forms 2.5 software package and TRACETM GC columns and consumables.
ToxLab Forms 2.5 software features Method Forge, an automated method builder, designed to reduce method development time and optimizing efficiency.
The EasyTox 2.5 solution provides complete methods and documentation for extraction and GC/MS analysis of common drugs of abuse in urine, offering full compliance with Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) requirements for drugs of abuse testing.
The DSQ II offers sensitivity for lower detection limits and unmatched reliability, while the new DuraBrite™ XL ion source revolutionizes mass spectrometer maintenance, minimizing instrument downtime.
The new Thermo Scientific ToxLab Forms 2.5 software is designed specifically for the workflow of toxicology laboratories. Method Forge simplifies method development by acquiring and then library searching a full scan data file and building a method with the results.
Method Forge also allows the input of peak integration and other method settings, which can be customized further within the method as needed.
Additionally, the templates and wizards of ToxLab Forms 2.5 simplify day-to-day sample analysis, and the Smart Reporting function facilitates real-time incorporation of any data changes into the reports, eliminating the need for reprocessing and reanalysis.
