First book to discuss the development and validation of LC-MS methods and their applications in analyzing a wide range of drugs
Will facilitate pharmacologists, toxicologists, and physicians finding relevant analytical techniques in their clinical research
No other title in the subject area deals with so many methodological chapters
High performance liquid chromatography – mass spectrometry (LC-MS) combines the separation power of liquid chromatography with the high sensitivity and selectivity of mass spectrometry. Therefore, LC-MS becomes the method of choice for drug bioanalysis in therapeutic drug monitoring, toxicology, and drug discovery and development. LC-MS in Drug Bioanalysis offers discussions on:
● LC-MS/MS method development and validation in a regulated environment
● Internal standard use in LC-MS/MS bioanalysis
● Pitfalls of LC-MS/MS and how to overcome them
● Dried blood spot sampling
● Microflow LC-MS/MS
● LC-MS/MS in therapeutic drug monitoring
● Applications of LC-MS/MS in drug bioanalysis
This book will aid readers to improve their skills in LC-MS/MS method development, validation, and applications in the analysis of drugs and their metabolites in complex biological matrices. In addition, this book provides detailed information on the bioanalysis of antidepressants, antipsychotics, steroid hormones, anticancer agents, and drugs of abuse. Newer methodologies are discussed including the use of unique sample preparation techniques and the implementation of imaging mass spectrometry in the localization of drug and drug metabolites in tissues.
