Liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) combined with library search is an emerging screening technology in clinical and forensic toxicology. This study focuses on creating a robust and easy-to-use solution for the detection and identification of common drugs, drugs of abuse and their metabolites in shortest time as possible.The presented library screening method with an ion trap mass spectrometer offers a fast, reliable and sensitive procedure for clinical and forensic analysis. The combination of MS²/MS³ spectra and retention time allows identification of drugs and metabolites at therapeutic levels.
