          干血斑技术能够方便地对血液样品中的违禁药物进行快速分析,在酒后驾驶检查、滥用药物检测、兴奋剂检测等毒物分析场景具有显著优势。然而在我国法庭科学毒物分析领域,因缺少标准化检验体系,其稳定性和可靠性未得到深入研究论证,限制了其在司法实践中的运用。本研究以甲基苯丙胺、利多卡因、氯胺酮、芬太尼和地西泮为典型药(毒)物,使用整个干血斑进行分析,建立了适用于法庭科学领域毒物分析的超高效液相色谱-串联质谱分析方法,形成了以干血斑样品制作、前处理、分析、储存和效用性评价为主要内容的检验体系,并为干血斑中其他药(毒)物的分析方法开发提供参考。结果表明,干血斑中利多卡因和芬太尼在0.5~100 ng/mL内线性关系良好,甲基苯丙胺、氯胺酮、地西泮在2~100 ng/mL内线性关系良好,方法检出限为0.2~0.5 ng/mL。干血斑中5种目标物可以在60天内保持稳定,目标物测定含量与理论值的偏差在15%以内。干血斑中5种目标物的测量结果与全血一致,没有显著的系统误差和比例误差,芬太尼、地西泮、氯胺酮、利多卡因和甲基苯丙胺的测量浓度的相对偏差分别为4.44%、3.50%、7.66%、5.10%和5.25%。干血斑样品前处理方法简单,样品用量小,能够实现血液样品保存的轻量化和规范化且与全血样品具有高度定量一致性,可为公安实践工作中分析、保存血液检材提供新方案。

          Dried blood spot (DBS) technology is a simple and convenient method for collecting, transporting, and storing blood samples on filter paper, and has numerous applications in the clinical, research, and public health settings. This technique is gaining popularity in the field of forensic science because it facilitates the rapid analysis of prohibited drugs in blood samples and offers significant advantages in toxicology scenarios such as drinking-driving screening, drug abuse detection, and doping detection. However, the lack of a standardized system and the fact that its stability and reliability have not been thoroughly researched and demonstrated limit its application in judicial practice in China. DBS samples can be prepared, stored, and analyzed in various ways, all of which may significantly affect the results. In this study, we developed a method based on ultra-high performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (UHPLC-MS/MS) that focuses on the preparation, pretreatment, analysis, and storage of DBS samples. A thorough investigation was conducted to examine the optimal preparation conditions, including the blood spot matrix, drying technique, and preprocessing parameters, such as the solvent and extraction method. Moreover, the analytical conditions, such as the mobile phase system and elution gradient, were established to facilitate the quantitative detection of methamphetamine, lidocaine, ketamine, fentanyl, and diazepam in both DBS and whole-blood samples. The impact of storage conditions, such as the temperature, humidity, and sealing, on the analytical results of the DBS and whole-blood samples was also examined. The results showed a strong linear relationship for lidocaine and fentanyl within the range of 0.5-100 ng/mL. Similarly, methamphetamine, ketamine, and diazepam exhibited good linearity within the range of 2-100 ng/mL. The coefficients of determination ( r 2) ranged from 0.9983 to 0.9997, and the limits of detection ranged from 0.2 to 0.5 ng/mL, indicating a high degree of correlation and sensitivity. Stability tests demonstrated that the five target substances remained stable in the DBS for 60 days, with the measured contents deviating from the nominal values by 15%. Moreover, the measurement results of the DBS samples were highly similar to those of the whole-blood samples, with mean percentage differences of 4.44%, 3.50%, 7.66%, 5.10%, and 5.25% for fentanyl, diazepam, ketamine, lidocaine, and methamphetamine, respectively. Throughout the 60-day storage period, the maintenance of temperatures of -20 and 4 ℃, as well as sealing and dry storage, was not necessary. Room temperature was the most practical storage environment for the DBS samples. The results for each target showed very small concentration differences between the whole-blood and DBS samples, indicating that the DBS samples were suitable for drug and poison analysis in blood. Furthermore, the DBSs exhibited high quantitative consistency with the whole-blood samples, rendering them suitable matrices for preserving blood samples. Because DBS samples are easy to handle and store, they can realize the lightweight preservation of blood samples and provide a novel solution for the analysis and preservation of blood samples in public security practice. We recommend conducting comprehensive validations before utilizing DBS for analysis, particularly in terms of quantification, to ensure the judicial reliability of the results.
