Information:
This webinar discusses how Mass Spectrometry and the "Hybrid Search" can be used to get a head start on identifying novel opioids.

Mass spectral library searching is an important tool in seized drug identification. It allows an analyst to identify a drug by comparing the experimental spectrum to a reference set of spectra for known compounds.

The primary limitation of conventional library search algorithms is the requirement that the mass spectral database contain a representative spectrum of the query compound. This limitation is particularly restrictive when novel molecules are synthesized more rapidly than they can be added to mass spectral libraries.
