LC/MS/MS Rapid Toxicology Screening System Ver.3
For LabSolutions™ LCMS
Library info for 231 compounds common in toxicology
This system improves the efficiency of simultaneous LC/MS/MS analysis methods by allowing the user to start analysis without time-consuming steps such as consideration of separation conditions and MS parameter optimization.
Rapid simultaneous analysis methods with analysis times under 15 mins are included for 231 compounds including drugs of abuse, psychoneurotic drugs and sedatives. The system also provides optimised conditions for synchronised survey scans used in screening measurements (conditions adopted for the product ion spectrum as a threshold value for the intensity in MRM).
Total solution including semi-quantitation
For each compound in the method, calibration curve information based on internal standards is available, so it is possible to obtain simple quantitative values after analysis. Using a pretreatment method based on the QuEChERS method*, it is possible to comprehensively recover compounds from biological samples. Qualitative analysis using the spectral library can be carried out during the data processing stage. In other words, the system provides a total solution encompassing pretreatment, analysis and data processing.
Pretreatment using the Micro Volume QuEChERS Kit
Example of data analysis using LabSolutions Insight Library Screening:
Using LabSolutions Insight Library Screening, you can check all of the following:
- (1) Quantitative results
- (2) Library search results
- (3) MS chromatogram
- (4) MS/MS spectra
- (5) Structural formula
List of registered compounds:
231 compounds including illegal drugs, sedatives, psychotropic drugs and medical drugs associated with many real-life cases.
Ecgonine methyl ester
Remarks and Precautions
- LabSolutions LCMS Ver. 5.109 or later and LabSolutions Insight Ver. 3.8SP1 or later are required.
- Depending on the condition and specifics of the equipment used, differences in quantitative values may occur. For accurate quantitative values, please use a calibration curve method with appropriate standard samples. In addition, scores obtained from searching in the library show the similarity of spectra and form one basis for the identification of compounds, but for more accurate compound identification it is more effective to combine multifaceted information such as retention times and sample information.

News / Events
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.
Interpretation of LC Chromatograms Facilitated by Mass Detection and the Mass-it™ Function
The LCMS-2050 mass spectrometer includes Mass-it functionality that can overlay compound mass (m/z) information, obtained with the mass spectrometer, onto UV chromatograms to support supplementing qualitative analysis results obtained using a UV detector.
Technical Background for the LCMS-2050, a Compact Mass Detector for LC
The LCMS-2050 single quadrupole mass spectrometer is highly compact in size, yet provides both high-speed and high-sensitivity analysis. Shimadzu’s technology has been condensed into an instrument miniaturized to the utmost.
Shimadzu has updated LC/MS/MS Method Package for Cell Culture Profiling Ver. 3 for LabSolutions LCMS
Version 3 of this method package adds metabolites characteristic of CHO cells, which are frequently used in the manufacture of monoclonal antibodies. Together with existing analytes, this Method Package enables the analysis of 144 compounds in under 20 minutes per sample.
