Event Overview:
With more than 800 novel psychoactive substances, so-called designer drugs, emerging over the last 10 years, forensic laboratories must detect a wider range of drugs and keep up with a constantly changing drug scene. Non-targeted screening by high resolution mass spectrometry enables the detection of known and “unknown” drugs. 

Key Learning Objectives:

  • How high resolution mass spectrometry is used in forensic laboratories for comprehensive drug screening

  • How informatics workflows enable the detection of both illicit and prescription drugs as well as novel psychoactive substances

  • The advantages of using high resolution mass spectrometry in a forensic laboratory
