In doping control and forensic toxicology applications, there is a high requirement for sensitivity and quantitative capability as well as an increasing demand for screening approaches, opening the possibility for retrospective analysis. GC triple quadrupole systems are highly valued for their sensitivity and wide dynamic range, making it a perfect instrument for targeted analysis and quantitation. However, the disadvantages of using GC Triple Quadrupole instruments include a limited scope of compounds able to be analyzed in one run and the lack of capability to perform retrospective analysis. These limitations motivate analysts to keep looking for alternative solutions, such as high resolution accurate mass instruments capable of both high sensitivity and wide dynamic range in complex matrices.
In this study, we are examining the potential for high resolution accurate mass 7250 GC/Q-TOF equipped with low energy EI source, for both quantitative and screening aspects of doping control and forensic drugs applications.

This work evaluated the performance of 2D LC variant using a QToF setup instead of a triple quadrupole mass spectrometer for the analysis of drug of abuse in urine targeting low and sub ppb level.READ MORE
Automation of Sample Preparation for Metabolomic Analysis Using Robotic PlatformPoster
We developed an automated sample preparation protocol based on a robotic platform PAL RTC (CTC Analytics AG, Zwingen Switzerland), which represent a modified Bligh and Dyer method producing samples for both hydrophilic metabolomics using GC-MS and lipidomics using SFC-MS simultaneously.READ MORE
Mass Spectrometry: From Imaging to Metabolic NetworksPoster
We show that network analysis of co-localized ions from mass spectrometry imaging data provides a detailed chemo-spatial insight into the metabolic heterogeneity of tumors. Furthermore, module preservation analysis between colorectal cancer patients with and without metastatic recurrence suggests hypotheses on the nature of the different local metabolic pathways.READ MORE
