Molecules: we let them fly ...
... and they will tell us who takes which drugs! Whether legal or illicit, even a low dosage of narcotics leaves chemical traces in the body.
We will show you on the mass spectrometer how these can be detected. In mass spectrometry, molecules are accelerated in a vacuum, and their motion - which is determined by their mass - is analysed.
How these measurements, and measurements based upon them, work, will be demonstrated in two of our mass spectrometers.
