Expanded application note. DIRECT SAMPLE ANALYSIS: Detecting THC/Cannabinoids in Contraband by Compact Mass Spectrometry
This is an expanded application note with more data regarding direct sample analysis of THC in suspected contraband and on skin. Direct sample analysis is possible via an Atmospheric Solids Analysis Probe (ASAP®) combined with atmospheric pressure chemical ionization (APCI) on a compact mass spectrometer (CMS). This technique allows for the rapid investigation (<30 sec) of material suspected of containing THC/cannabinoids.
