Product News: Thermo Fisher Scientific Launches Technical Library on LC-MS Solutions for Endocrine Drug Analysis in Clinical Research

11 Nov 2011

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has launched a new technical library of liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) solutions for endocrine drug analysis in clinical research, including methods showcasing the ability of automated sample preparation and multiplexing to reduce sample preparation time and maximize mass spectrometer throughput.

The regularly updated technical library comprises detailed publications from Thermo Fisher’s dedicated global clinical research team, which develops faster and more analytically sensitive methods for endocrine drug analysis for its research clients. The new library is a comprehensive resource containing application notes, webinars, technical posters, case studies, videos and web resources for numerous applications.

“We designed the LC-MS technical library for endocrine drug analysis to help laboratory managers and technicians better understand the power of LC-MS technology for clinical research. We believe what they learn from this great resource will help maximize their sample throughput, improve turnaround time and reduce overall analysis cost, without compromising data quality for drug analysis,” said Ian Jardine, vice president of global R&D, Thermo Fisher.

The technical library includes the latest applications utilized for the analysis of endocrine drugs in clinical research, including:

- Immunoaffinity for research analysis of 1,25D
- Automated online sample preparation for time savings
- UHPLC for higher throughput
- Triple stage quadrupole for necessary LOQ and dynamic range
- High-resolution, accurate mass for difficult endogenous molecules.
