Thermo Fisher Scientific (Waltham, Massachusetts) announced that its liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry (LC–MS-MS) instrumentation has been used in the Kenneth L. Maddy Analytical Chemistry Laboratory (Davis, California) for equine drug testing. The instrumentation consisted of the company’s turbulent flow LC system interfaced with its triple-stage quadrupole mass spectrometer. The laboratory is the authorized equine drug-testing laboratory for California’s six permanent race courses, nine seasonal fair locations, and other performance events. The analytes of interest were anabolic androgenic steroids in urine and plasma samples.
