Forensic Toxicology Database for LC-MS/MS
LC/MS/MS Forensic Toxicology Database
For LabSolutions™ LCMS
The database includes information on drugs of abuse, hypnotics, psychotropics, pesticides, prescription drugs and natural toxins.
Simplified Acquisition and Identification
The Forensic Toxicology Database includes optimized LC-MS/MS data acquisition parameters and a library database to help clinical and forensic researchers build screening and quantitation methods quickly, simplifying method development.
MRM & Spectral Library database contains information on more than 2,500 compounds
The spectral library database is built using two separation conditions (ODS and Biphenyl). Both methods have information on clinical and forensic compounds of interest in routine analysis. The ODS method contains information on 1,250 compounds and the Biphenyl method contains 1,281 compounds. Compound datasheet includes: monoisotopic mass, RT, CAS number, formula and compound class. This package provides Synchronized Survey Scan parameters (MRM parameters, MRM intensity threshold and triggered product ion scan parameters) optimized for screening analysis.
Enhanced identification by merged spectrum
Each certified reference material was acquired with three different collision energies to generate an information-rich merged-CE spectrum which can be used in library matching and compound verification. Matching with a merged-CE spectrum library can be a powerful tool to identify compounds with a library score.

Life Science Biomarker Industry Page has been updated
Biomarkers are derived from living organisms and found in tissues, blood, and other bodily fluids. Biomarkers are indicators of biological changes in an organism and are used to diagnose disease, in prognosis, and to evaluate the efficacy and safety of pharmaceuticals. Biomarkers can be nucleic acids, proteins, peptides, lipids, and sugars, and are identified using various “omics” techniques.
Life Science Proteomics Industry Page has been updated
Proteomics is an academic discipline involving the comprehensive study of protein structure and function, typically by mass spectrometry and electrophoresis. Unlike the genome, the cells of an organism do not all contain the same complement of proteins, but different cells contain different proteins at different times. Proteomics uses this phenomenon to enable more efficient drug development and to determine the mechanisms of disease.
Given that cellulose nanofibers（CNFs）offer attractive physical characteristics, such as light weight, strength, and hardness, they not only enable materials with advanced functionality, but are expected to be used as a reinforcing material that can reduce the weight of composite materials.
Handbook of Analysis Procedures for EPA method 533, EPA method 537.1 are now available.
The validity of the analysis performed by each laboratory needs to be confirmed by Quality Control (QC). This article section shows the general analytical procedure for fulfilling QC requirements. Note that the procedure could be modified depending on the situation in the lab and analysts.
Shimadzu has released the CLAM-2040, Fully Automated Sample Preparation Module for LCMS
The CLAM-2040 accompanies you on most of the analytical workflow and improves your overall throughput by drastically reducing the sample preparation time. Simply place the blood tubes in position and the CLAM-2040 performs the next steps automatically, from sample extraction, up to the LCMS analysis and data processing.
Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS)
Per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of persistent and harmful chemicals that can be commonly found in the environment globally. These anthropogenic chemicals can come from various sources such as manufacturing, industrial applications, food contact materials and consumer products, and eventually end up and accumulate in the water, soil and living organisms.
