The Thermo Scientific™ Q Exactive™ HF-X Hybrid Quadrupole-Orbitrap™ Mass Spectrometer, winner of Best New Drug Discovery & Development Product of 2018
Clinical research laboratories are currently faced with the challenge of finding new solutions for better outcomes and lower costs that will address the latest trends in drugs of abuse and drug monitoring research. In the field of forensic toxicology, the opioid epidemic and a growing range of novel psychoactive substances (NPS) continue to be a major focus for law enforcement.
While both of these fields rely heavily on immunoassays and mass spectrometry (MS)-based tests, innovations in MS technology, like high-resolution, accurate-mass (HRAM), have opened up new possibilities that will help to shape the future of clinical research and development of personalized drug therapies.
In a round table discussion, chaired by Dr. Suparna Mundodi, marketing manager, clinical research, at Thermo Fisher Scientific, Dr. Marilyn Huestis, recently retired from the National Institute on Drug Abuse, Dr. Michael Vogeser, specialist in laboratory medicine and senior physician at the Hospital of the University of the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, Germany, and Lawrence Andrade, director of research and development, Dominion Diagnostics, discuss the hot topics in clinical research and the future of MS technology in clinical settings.
