Shimadzu Scientific Instruments today announces the release of its new GCMS Smart Database Series. The series is comprised of separate databases for analyzing pesticides, forensic toxicological substances, metabolites and environmental pollutants. Each database includes hundreds of related compounds with optimized transitions and collision energies, CAS registry numbers and retention indices (RI). The software series supports simultaneous high-sensitivity analysis of samples using GC-MS/MS, eliminating the need to configure complicated analysis conditions.

Smart MRM™ technology enables automated creation of fully optimized multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) and Scan/MRM methods with the push of a button. This saves valuable time and effort associated with manually configuring measurement settings for multicomponent batch analysis. Since retention indices are registered for all the components, users can quickly update retention times via the AART (Automatic Adjustment of Retention Time) function.

As part of the series, the Smart Metabolites Database is currently the world’s only commercial database for GC-MS/MS analysis of metabolomics. It is optimal for analyzing metabolites in biological samples. The database contains MRM transitions for 475 metabolites commonly found in samples such as blood, urine and cellular material.

The Smart Pesticides Database is ideal for analyzing residual pesticides in complex matrices. The database is registered with 477 components and 2,675 MRM transitions.

The Smart Forensic Database is registered with a total of 201 forensic toxicological substances and includes 1,200 MRM transitions. Categories of compounds include drugs of abuse, psychopathic drugs, general drugs, pesticides and rodenticides.

The Smart Environmental Database features 362 native compounds and 148 isotopically labeled compounds to support the analysis of environmental pollutants. Ideal applications for this database include analysis of organic compounds such as brominated flame retardants, PCBs, PAHs, PCDD/PCDF, and organochlorine pesticides in sediment, water, foodstuff and animal feed.
