NIST Mass Spectrometry Data Center Standard Reference Data and Software Tools for Seized Drug Analysis
William E. Wallace, Arun Moorthy
The reference data and software tools provided by the National Institute of Standards and Technology's Mass Spectrometry Data Center (NIST MSDC) are reviewed with a focus on the identification of fentanyl related substances (FRS). The MSDC provides three standard reference mass spectral libraries as well as six software tools for spectrum analysis, interpretation, and uncertainty estimation. Each of these data sets and software tools are described in detail with references to the original publications provided. Examples of fentanyl identification by gas chromatography – mass spectrometry and by direct analysis in real time (DART) mass spectrometry are given.
