Better screening accuracy for drugs of abuse
Cliquid Drug Screen and Quant
New automated toxicology testing application is designed for efficient identification of drugs of abuse, such as cocaine, heroin and date rape drugs, for forensic investigations
Applied Biosystems and MDS Sciex has developed a new, automated toxicology software application that enables faster delivery of results, more thorough screening and, ultimately, more accurate analysis to be used as evidence in criminal court cases.
The Cliquid Drug Screen and Quant software for routine forensic toxicology equips toxicology laboratories for the first time with a built-in library of 1200 compounds and a search reporting function designed to screen for hundreds of drugs in less than 20 minutes.
The compounds in the library consist of drugs of abuse, pharmaceuticals, poisons and metabolites to provide a complete automated analysis through a simple, turnkey workflow.
The Cliquid software application is the first dedicated application that utilises liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS).
The high degree of sensitivity, minimum sample preparation and short run times of LC/MS/MS allows analysis of more samples per unit time at a lower cost than other techniques, eliminating the limitations of traditional techniques and more quickly deliver irrefutable results.
