Rapid Screening of Submicroliter Urine Samples for Drugs of Abuse utilizing Pulsed Gas Ambient Ionization

Rapid detection of trace drugs-of-abuse in urine is demonstrated using a pulsed gas direct analysis in real time ambient ionization equipped time-of-flight mass spectrometer. Submicroliter sampling combined with analysis at multiple temperatures serve to minimize the matrix effects normally encountered in direct analysis of urine without pre-processing to remove salts, proteins, metabolic products including creatinine and urea. Accurate control of the temperature of ionization exiting the DART source and limiting thermal desorption time to one second per sample serve to permit rapid sensitive detection of drugs-of-abuse. Addition of isotopically labelled reference standards and their ionization serve to provide semi-quantitative determination for those drugs detected making the method suitable for high throughput screening of raw urine.

Simplifying the detection of explosives in a walk-up environment

The composition of volatiles from freshly ground roast-ed coffee is complex, with hundreds of chemical compounds contributing to the aroma. Head-space solid-phase micro-extraction was used to sample volatiles from five different coffees for analysis by GC-MS. Chemometric analysis revealed specific differences between coffees from different origins and different preparations.

Here’s Gavin Sacks from Cornell Uni on DART-MS applications in food and beverage:

“The strong correlations between GC-MS and DART-MS suggest that the latter could be used as a rapid alternative (∼30s/sample)
to conventional GC-MS analyses (∼30 min/sample). #DART #DARTMS #GCMS"

A new paper has been released exploring the use of DART-MS for species identification and classification.

Read the paper to see the direct benefits DART-MS brings to users over the more traditional LC and GC techniques.


“SpectralWorks provide a professional service that allows us to focus on our hardware knowing that our software is always being skillfully looked after by leading developers within the mass spectrometry field.”


I have found AnalyzerPro a valuable tool that has greatly streamlined our metabolomics data processing operations. We are thoroughly satisfied with not only the product but also the accompanying support.

SpectralWorks knows how to translate our, or better our customers, software requirements into a user friendly application. Not only “tailor made modifications” of their own products like AnalyzerPro, but also powerful tools as an add-on to existing software packages. In short…a reliable partner.
