This webinar will introduce potential users to the NIST/NIJ DART-MS Data Interpretation Tool, a freely available and open-source software tool.
It can be used to view reference is-CID mass spectra from the new NIST DART-MS Forensics Database as well as search user query mass spectra against a reference library to identify mixture components using the Inverted Library Search Algorithm. The search results can be printed in pre-formatted reports for archiving.
This presentation will introduce potential users to the NIST/NIJ DART-MS DIT, including a live demonstration of the ILSA functionality for identifying mixture components from is-CID mass spectra – a method for presumptive screening of seized drug evidence.
Detailed Learning Objectives:
- Learn how to download and run the NIST/NIJ DART-MS Data Interpretation Tool (DIT).
- Learn how the Inverted Library Search Algorithm (ILSA) function can be used for identifying compounds in seized drug evidence.
- Learn about the other resources available to laboratories for implementing DART-MS or other ambient ionization mass spectrometry techniques.
