The Applied Environmental Research Laboratories (AERL) in Vancouver Island University, Canada, conducts pure and applied research in analytical mass spectrometry to measure chemical determinants of environmental and human health. The AERL team desired new technology that would allow them to set up a street-level drug-testing program, HarmCheck, to help check for fentanyls, opioids, and other drugs at a harm reduction site. In this video, join Chris Gill, Chemistry Professor at Vancouver Island University, as he explores the Thermo Scientific™ TSQ Plus MS with the VeriSpray™ PaperSpray Ion Source. He dives into how this instrument has enabled his laboratory to try and overcome the opioid overdose crisis.
