Applied Biosystems releases new toxicology testing software

17th October 2007

Applied Biosystems has introduced an automated toxicology testing application designed to identify particular drugs for forensic investigations.

Cocaine, heroin and date rape drugs are among those that will be picked up by the new Cliquid Drug Screen and Quant Software for routine forensic toxicology.

Laboratories will be equipped with a built-in library of 1,200 compounds and a search function to screen hundreds of drugs in less than 20 minutes.

Advancing over existing methods, the software enables faster delivery of results, more thorough screening and more accurate analysis for use in court cases.

"The accuracy of the test results is critical in toxicology analysis and interpretation," commented Dr Alan Wu, chief of toxicology at San Francisco General Hospital.

"The new Cliquid software application for drug screening promises to make interpretation of toxicology results more efficient," he added.

Identifying an expanding array of "street" drugs has created new challenges for toxicologists, with Cliquid marking the first dedicated application using liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS), an advanced analytical technique for screening compounds.

Applied Biosystems has pointed out that the development of Cliquid is a response to customers’ requests for advanced tools that eliminate the complexity and limitations of traditional techniques.ADNFCR-1050-ID-18319799-ADNFCR
