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
Extracted ion chromatogram of 100+ compounds covering a range of drug classes hydrophobicities, and polarities.
What experienced users are saying
"Tox Explorer Collection for Orbitrap Exploris 120 MS provides a powerful solution for forensic toxicology.
We have developed an in-house broad coverage ‘open’ screen for NPS, drugs of abuse and medications based on Q Exactive Orbitrap mass spectrometers that has allowed us to successfully deliver forensic toxicology services for the past 10 years."
The Tox Explorer Collection on the Orbitrap Exploris 120 MS has significantly enhanced the screening service. Additional analytes in the database have provided enhanced coverage helping in the identification of unique compounds in various coroner’s cases; the greater scan speed of the Orbitrap Exploris also allows complex acquisition workflows including polarity switching and targeted data dependent MS2 (ddMS2) in a single analysis.
