Achieving the Standards in Forensic Toxicology: A Focus on Benzodiazepines Method Development Using Laminar Flow Mass Spectrometry


The push for broad standards and best practice documents for forensic toxicology demonstrates the need for laboratories to ensure they meet the required capabilities to not only detect specific classes of drugs, such as benzodiazepines which are commonly encountered in forensic case work, but also ensure method validity. The purpose of this presentation is to highlight a developed method on the QSIGHT 220 and the validated parameters for the detection and quantitation of those benzodiazepines that are listed on two standards for forensic toxicology. This presentation given by Boston Unviersity Professor Sabra Botch-Jones will describe method for the quantification of benzodiazepines development using the QSight LC/MS/MS.
