This work aims to provide a practical and broadly applicable, automated SPE strategy for the accurate and reproducible quantification of drugs of abuse and pain management drugs from urine samples in support of clinical research in forensic toxicology. A previously validated method was transferred to the Hamilton Microlab STAR which performed all sample pretreatment in addition to the full SPE procedure. These automation strategies simplify and streamline the sample preparation workflow, maximize productivity, and reduce risk of human error, while ensuring peak analytical performance.
