Measurement of THC in Exhaled Breath after Marijuana Smoking: Exploring the Potential of a Transportable LC/CMS System

 
Measurement of THC in Exhaled Breath after Marijuana Smoking: Exploring the Potential of a Transportable LC/CMS System

Dr. Jack Henion presents the possibility of using the Advion expression Compact Mass Spectrometer (CMS) for ‘roadside breath testing’ of THC DRUID (driving under the influence of drugs) with the use of a small plastic breath collection device from Breath Explor of Uppsala, Sweden. This device serves as a simple, acceptable collection device for individuals in contrast to venous puncture with a needle or other means of collecting a biological sample.

In this ASMS 2020 Reboot presentation, you will learn:

  • Breath sample collection with the Breath Explor device
  • The potential benefits and challenges of a roadside LC/CMS testing system including an automated robot for sample preparation with the Advion expression CMS and Advion AVANT UHPLC
  • The Advion LC/CMS system provides accurate and sensitive results when used to analyze breath samples for THC
