Fentanyl and its analogs play a major role in the current opioid epidemic. In particular, these highly potent opioids have become a health hazard due to their use as additives in street drugs. Consequently, rapid on-site procedures for the analysis of this class of seized drugs are needed, especially considering the reported backlog of drug samples, which must undergo identification and confirmation tests to validate the presence of an illicit substance. Paper based devices are cheap sampling an...

Automated spraying devices have become ubiquitous in laboratories employing matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry imaging (MALDI-MSI), in part because they permit control of a number of matrix application parameters that can easily be reproduced for intra- and interlaboratory studies. Determining the optimal parameters for MALDI matrix application, such as temperature, flow rate, spraying velocity, number of spraying cycles, and solvent composition for matrix application,...

Identification and confirmation of known as well as unknown (bio)chemical entities in ambient mass spectrometry (MS) and MS imaging (MSI) mostly involve accurate mass determination, often in combination with MS/MS or MSn work flows. To further improve structural assignment, additional molecular information is required. Here we present an ambient hydrogen/deuterium exchange (HDX) laser ablation electrospray ionization (LAESI) MS method in which, apart from the accurate mass and MS/MS data, the nu...
Infrared matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization (IR-MALDESI) is an ambient mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) technique that relies on electrospray ionization (ESI) for ion generation of desorbed neutrals. Although many mechanisms in IR-MALDESI have been studied in depth, there has not yet been a comprehensive study of how the ESI parameters change the profiles of tissue specific lipids. Acetonitrile (ACN)/water and methanol (MeOH)/water solvent systems and compositions were varied across a se...

The range of commercial techniques for high-resolution gas-chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC–MS) has been recently extended with the introduction of GC Orbitrap Fourier transform mass spectrometry (FTMS). We report on progress with quantitation performance in the analysis of persistent organic pollutants (POP), by averaging of time-domain signals (transients), from a number of GC–FTMS experiment replicates. Compared to a standard GC–FTMS measurement (a single GC–FTMS experiment replicate, mas...
Recently, several mass-spectrometry- and protein-denaturation-based proteomic methods have been developed to facilitate protein target discovery efforts in drug mode-of-action studies. These methods, which include the stability of proteins from rates of oxidation (SPROX), pulse proteolysis (PP), chemical denaturation and protein precipitation (CPP), and thermal proteome profiling (TPP) techniques, have been used in an increasing number of applications in recent years. However, while the advantag...

The emergence of ambient ionization techniques and their combination with smaller, cheaper mass spectrometers is beginning to make real the possibility of mass spectrometry measurements being made routinely outside of traditional laboratory settings. Here, we describe the development of an atmospheric solids analysis probe (ASAP) source for a commercially available miniaturized, single-quadrupole mass spectrometer and subsequent modification of the instrument to allow it to run as a deployable s...
First results for a new atmospheric-pressure matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) mass spectrometry imaging source operating at 213 nm laser wavelength are presented. The activation of analytes in the 213 nm MALDI process at atmospheric pressure was evaluated and compared to results for 337 nm MALDI and electrospray ionization using thermometer molecules. Different sample preparation techniques for nicotinic acid, the matrix with the highest ionization efficiency at 213 nm of all ...
