Expanding Forensic Drug Panels

Screening for a range of drugs, now or later

Drug screens offer a convenient selection of tests for identifying and quantifying drug levels for a broad variety of drug classes in your sample. Routine screens for a known or targeted list of compounds or drugs of abuse (DoA) can be expanded to include newly added designer drugs, or expanded for specialized combinations for police, customs-border inspection, and medical examiners for determining probable cause.

Learn about the latest forensics advances to help efficiently screen more analytes of interest to aid your research and investigation, and improve your organization’s testing costs. Thermo Scientific's world-class chromatography and mass spectrometry (MS) solutions are available for expanding or customizing forensic drug panels. Our triple quadrupole mass spectrometers provide robust, routine screening for the broadest variety of drug classes in your sample. State-of-the-art high-resolution accurate mass (HRAM) MS Orbitrap technology reliably screens panels from a few dozen to over 1,000 known and unknown DoA compounds, and identifies newly added drugs without having to re-run your samples.
