Implementation of Multi-Channel LC-MS for Clinical Research Analyses
06 Dec 2017

One of the major challenges for adopting LC-MS technology is the limited throughput and automation compared to typical clinical chemistry instruments. This is an important issue because, in the areas of toxicology, endocrinology, and therapeutic drug monitoring, there are some important applications for which there are no commercial solutions. Laboratory developed tests using LC-MS and other technologies are needed to bridge this gap. In this webinar we will discuss the opportunities and challenges for LC-MS in the clinical research laboratory, and describe ways that TurboFlow technology and multi-channel LC-MS systems increase efficiency and throughput. Examples will include methods to measure plasma renin activity and aldosterone concentration, rapid quantification of morphine and metabolites, and high-throughput quantification of antidepressant drugs.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Simplifying measurements of plasma renin activity and aldosterone concentration
  • Rapid quantification of morphine and metabolites
  • High-throughput quantification of antidepressant drugs
  • Online sample preparation using TurboFlow technology
  • Increasing efficiency and throughput using multi-channel LC-MS systems


Who Should Attend:
Lab directors and medical lab scientists and their support staff looking to further advance their understanding of various physiological processes as well as discovering & integrating current and new technologies to improve their clinical research testing procedures:
  • Advantages of LC-MS technology over immunoassay for clinical research
  • Using LC-MS to measure plasma renin activity and aldosterone levels
  • Possibilities of performing drug panels with multi-channel LC-MS
  • Using online sample preparation to improve workflow and MS data quality
