Applications of LC-MS in Toxicology
Edited by Aldo Polettini - Dept of Legal Medicine and Public Health, University of Pavia
Applications of LC-MS in Toxicology covers all essential theoretical aspects of LC-MS including: technical details of the instrumentation, method development, optimisation and validation, quantification, maintenance and troubleshooting.
Further chapters cover in detail the application of LC-MS in areas such as: systematic toxicological analysis, drugs of abuse, therapeutic drug monitoring, doping in sport, pesticides, peptides and further potential forensic applications.
This authoritative text is essential reading for all forensic and clinical toxicologists and will also be useful to pharmaceutical analysis as well as analytical chemists.
