Screening Procedures for Simultaneous Detection of Several Drug Classes Used for High Throughput Toxicological Analyses and Doping Control. A Review

[ Vol. 3 , Issue. 6 ]


Hans H. Maurer   Pages 467 - 480 ( 14 )


This paper reviews high throughput screening procedures for the simultaneous detection of several drug classes relevant to clinical and forensic toxicology or doping control in urine or blood using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS), liquid chromatography coupled with a diode-array detector (LC-DAD) or mass spectrometry (LC-MS). Basic information describing these systematic toxicological analysis (STA) procedures such as the analytes, the biosample, work-up, separation column, mobile phase or separation buffer, detection mode and detection limits are summarized in tables arranged according to the analytical method. Examples of typical applications are presented in 2 figures. Analysis of alternative matrices, like sweat, saliva, nails or hair, was not reviewed.
