Tox Explorer HRAM Solution
High resolution and mass accuracy
Thermo Scientific Orbitrap technology platforms offer high resolution mass spectrometry and better mass accuracy without loss of sensitivity and provide positive/negative polarity switching in one analytical run, saving time and offering greater confidence in data output. Screening, identification, confirmation and quantitation can all be performed on one mass spectrometry platform. One of the key benefits of using high resolution accurate mass (HRAM) mass detection for toxicology analyses is the ability to use retrospective data to help with the identification of novel designer drugs.
- Screen, identify, confirm, and quantitate – all with one instrument
- Analyze a broad spectrum of compounds in one run
- Perform retrospective analysis without requiring additional experiments
- Obtain comprehensive MS/MS spectra without the need to average, while accessing positive and negative compounds in one run
- Utilize data-dependent acquisition for the identification of unknown structures via MS/MS spectra
- Exceptional mass accuracy and stability within and between runs—even at low mass ranges— ensures confidence in results
HRAM XIC chromatograms of a select number of analytes ranging from ethyl glucuronide (EtG) to tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Detection of hydromorphone in full scan mode with mass accuracy of -2.78 ppm, using external calibration. Identification of hydromorphone using MS/MS without averaging scans.

"We have been using mass spectral libraries since 1987 to aid in the identification of mass spectra from full scan and MSn GC-MS, MSn LC-MS and more recently HRAM MS2 LC-MS and have constructed several in house mass spectral libraries. When I talk about mass spectral libraries to non-experts, I liken mass spectra to ‘fingerprints’ for chemicals and in combination with HRAM measurement, the fingerprints become far more specific. Ultimately, the more entries in a mass spectral library the better, and more recently with mzCloud, the information is present for anybody to use.”
