Wiley launches the Maurer, Meyer, Helfer, Weber: LC-HR-MS/MS Library of Drugs, Poisons, and Their Metabolites

HOBOKEN, NJ - June, 2018 Wiley Launches the Maurer, Meyer, Helfer, Weber: LC-HR-MS/MS Library of Drugs, Poisons, and Their Metabolites

Created by the experienced team that created the Maurer/Pfleger/Weber GCMS Toxicology library, Wiley is please to announce the availability of this Hi-Res library. Using the same principles that have made the GCMS library so dependable, the new Hi-Res library contains the significant metabolites vital for reliable identification.

A major goal in clinical and forensic as well as in doping laboratories is a broad screening procedure for detection of toxic compounds or drugs of abuse. In addition to GC-MS and LC-MSn screening techniques, LC-high-resolution tandem mass spectrometry (LC-HR-MS/MS) provides many advantages for screening approaches such as higher versatility, sensitivity and specificity. The Maurer/Meyer/Helfer/Weber LC-HR-MS/MS Library of Drugs, Poisons, and Their Metabolites is the basis for metabolite-based screening procedures described for various drug classes.

Detection of metabolites increases selectivity, allows confirmation of the body passage, and finally, minimizes the risk of false negative LC-MS results possibly caused by ion suppression of the target analyte. The LC-HR-MS/MS library features over 2,000 parent drugs or poisons, and over 3,000 of their metabolites or artifacts in over 95 compound classification groups.
