Technology
Liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry is an analytical chemistry technique that combines the physical separation capabilities of liquid chromatography with the mass analysis capabilities of mass spectrometry. LC-MS is a powerful technique used for many applications which has very high sensitivity and specificity. The applications of LS-MS are extensive and varied, ranging from pharmacokinetics studies to protemic analysis to drug development. Medi-Lab specifically utilizes this technique for bioanalysis of biological fluids to test for drugs.
The potency of modern drugs requires more sensitive bioanalytical assays than traditionally used in order to reliably determine and quantify these drugs at lower concentrations. This has driven improvements in technology and analytical methods and given rise to the novel application of LS-MS in bioanalysis. Medi-lab is at the pinnacle of cutting edge techniques in analytical chemistry and bioanalysis.
 
Advantages of LC/MS/MS
  • Analyze more samples in a shorter amount of time without compromising data quality
  • Quickly detecting, identifying and quantifying drugs
  • Applicable to the analysis of many different drugs from several classes
