LC/MS Applications in Drug Development
Published March 2002
This book is the first to describe LC/MS applications within the context of drug development: discovery, preclinical, clinical, and manufacturing.


An exciting series of workshops provide a unique blend of LC/MS principles and practical industry applications. A highly interactive environment facilitates discussion of analysis requirements, strategies, and methodologies. The content and presentation is appropriate for scientists ranging from managers to experienced practitioners to new users of LC/MS.

A unique blend of LC/MS principles and practical industry applications are illustrated within a highly interactive, collegial environment. The discussion of analysis requirements, strategies, and practical uses of new methodologies are promoted.

Workshops highlight practical industry experiences and illustrate proven procedures to help implement solutions in the laboratory. Valuable reference materials provide a foundation for future development needs.

Fundamentals of LC/MS

This workshop provides an introduction to LC/MS technology, terminology, procedures and applications. You will learn about LC/MS instrumentation, LC/MS information, and proven industry examples. Useful insights for the incorporation of LC/MS into your work are discussed.

Useful information about the fundamentals and operation of LC/MS instrumentation is provided. Practical applications introduce you ways you apply LC/MS in your own laboratory.

Emerging LC/MS Applications for Drug Development

LC/MS is being widely implemented throughout drug development. This workshop focuses on the current strategies using LC/MS for:

Practical examples will provide the opportunity to discuss these and other opportunities in drug development. Performance benchmarks will be explored. Discussions will inspire creativity for new applications and performance.

Qualitative Structure Analysis Using LC/MS

The capabilities of LC/MS for providing structure-based information are being widely utilized throughout drug development. Structural information is providing information for regulatory support, as well as optimization of drug structures, properties, processes and products. LC/MS technology actively provides information for:
