Thermo Fisher Scientific Launches EasyTox 2.5 Toxicology GC/MS Solution for Increased Productivity in Routine Drugs of Abuse Analysis

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, announces the launch of the new EasyTox™ 2.5 GC/MS productivity solution for routine drugs of abuse analysis. Incorporating the new Thermo Scientific ToxLab™ Forms 2.5 software, the comprehensive EasyTox 2.5 platform has been designed to reduce costs, increase sample throughput and improve productivity in forensic and clinical laboratories performing analysis of urine for signs of drugs of abuse. The fully integrated solution combines the Thermo Scientific DSQTM II single quadrupole GC/MS system with the new ToxLab Forms 2.5 software package and TRACETM GC columns and consumables. ToxLab Forms 2.5 software features Method Forge, an automated method builder, designed to significantly reduce method development time, optimizing efficiency and enabling scientists to operate in an increasingly competitive environment.

Drugs of abuse analysis is performed in a wide range of applications, including criminal investigations, medical examinations and emergency room drug screens, where it is important to ascertain if a person has drugs of abuse in their system. Toxicology laboratories face considerable pressure to reduce turn-around times, costs and simplify workflows in order to manage an ever-increasing workload. Additionally, many laboratories that have been using contract laboratories to perform drug confirmations have decided to bring this capability in-house to decrease costs and reduce turnaround time to their customers. Each of these labs must comply with strict regulations on quality control processes and performance-based methods.

The new comprehensive EasyTox 2.5 solution provides complete methods and documentation for extraction and GC/MS analysis of common drugs of abuse in urine, offering full compliance with Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) requirements for drugs of abuse testing. The DSQ II offers industry-leading sensitivity for lower detection limits and unmatched reliability, while the new DuraBriteTM XL ion source revolutionizes mass spectrometer maintenance, minimizing instrument downtime.

The new Thermo Scientific ToxLab Forms 2.5 software is designed specifically for the workflow of toxicology laboratories. Method Forge simplifies method development by acquiring and then library searching a full scan data file and building a method with the results. Method Forge also allows the input of peak integration and other method settings, which can be customized further within the method as needed. Additionally, the intuitive templates and wizards of ToxLab Forms 2.5 simplify day-to-day sample analysis, and the powerful Smart Reporting function facilitates real-time incorporation of any data changes into the reports, eliminating the need for reprocessing and reanalysis.
