SOFT Conference 2023

Join Phytronix at the SOFT Conference 2023 in Denver Colorado to speak about high throughput screening with Luxon Ion Source.

Denver, Colorado is the chosen city to hold the Society of Forensic Toxicologists (SOFT) 2023 Conference this year. Join us at Booth #507 at the Gaylord Rockies Resort and Convention Center between October 31st and November 2nd 2023. Phytronix, represented by Serge Auger and Sarah Demers, will present two posters on Wednesday November 1st, P10 and P11.

High-Throughput Screening in Urine

The first poster will be on the method developed to screen for Gabapentin, Ethyl-β-glucuronide, Pregabalin and GHB at 8 seconds per sample using Luxon Ion Source. Since these drugs of abuse are highly polar and are most compatible with an aqueous phase, a simple dilution is done, which can be easily automated using the Azeo Liquid Handler or your chosen in-house liquid handler.

Whole Blood Drug Panel Screening in Impaired Driving Investigations

Second poster is on the rapid analysis of drugs of abuse in whole blood. The drug list and screening cut-offs described by ANSI/ASB Standard 120 for whole blood were used. The drugs were separated in two panels with each panel having their specific extraction process for the analysis with Luxon Ion Source.

We’ll see you on October 31st at SOFT 2023! Don’t forget to come collect your maple syrup candy for Halloween 🍬
