Ok?? Not confused but that has absolutely nothing to do with what I said lol!!! Silly smart peopleForensic toxicology is a multidisciplinary field involving the detection and interpretation of the presence of drugs and other potentially toxic compounds in bodily tissues and fluids. These analyses and interpretations are conducted in a manner to be defensible in court. Forensic toxicology continues to be a dynamic field with evolving technology applications. Tandem mass spectrometry methods, particularly liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS), have grown in importance. These technologies provide greater sensitivities and flexibility for the detection of larger and more polar compounds that are difficult or impossible to analyze with gas chromatographic methods. Continued development of immunoassays for a wider range of compounds has kept immunoassays a vital part of the analytical armamentarium. Time of flight mass spectrometry (TOF-MS) has also become more important in the field. The advent of more, larger peptide-based drugs will present analytical challenges for forensic toxicologists. Also the rising field of pharmacogenomics and the concept of the genetic autopsy may alter dramatically the interpretation of drug concentrations. As more evidence is gained about the interplay between an individual's geno- and phenotypes and their mxetabolic capacity, changes in dosing and in the interpretation of what is viewed to be toxic and therapeutic are likely to occur.
