    Blood Sample Prep for GC-MS

    If you are using GC-MS for your whole blood analyses, have you thought about updating your sample prep methods? Our application notes describe simple robust procedures - with no need for complicated sample pre-treatment - for many common drug classes:

    Cocaine and metabolites


    AN944 Screengrab

    Synthetic Cannabinoids in Whole Blood

    Synthetic cannabinoids are sold under a wide range of names such as K2, Spice, Legal Highs. They are synthesized to circumvent existing laws, and new substances  are frequently identified.  This method for extraction of and clean up of whole blood samples allows for identification of 12 novel synthetic cannabinoids by LC-MS/MS.



    Alcohol Biomarkers in Whole Blood

    This simple supported liquid extraction method for phosphatidylethanol (PEth)  in whole blood does not require complex sample pre-treatment steps, and allows for accurate quantification of 3 common PEth species. The method is fully automatable.


    Drug Research Panel
