Determination of Metabolically Unstable Drugs in Blood by Heat-Stabilized DBS and LC-MS/MS

The aims of this work were to investigate drug stability prior to, during and after blood spot sampling, using procaine, prulofloxacine, esmolol, and acetylsalisylic acid as examples of drug compounds with limited stability and to compare conventional DBS sampling procedure with DBS sampling including heat stabilization.

LC/MS/MS Quantitation of Eicosapentaenoic Acid in Rat Plasma
Rachel Sun, Jordan Nally, Tim Shoaf

Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) is an omega-3 fatty acid, which has been documented to be important in biochemical and physiological processes including inflammatory response, blood clotting and the immune system. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) appears in different forms in the blood including triglyceride, ethyl ester, or free acid. In this work we presented an LC/MS/MS method to quantitate the total eicosapentaenoic acid in rat plasma with a 96-well plate format.

Ion Chromatography ICP-Q-MS for the Detection of Arsenic Species in Apple Juice
Daniel Kutscher, Shona McSheehy-Ducos, Julian Wills and Detlef Jensen

Interest in the determination of Arsenic species in fruit juices has been triggered by recent media reports in the United States claiming that some apple juices may contain high amounts of Arsenic. Inorganic forms of Arsenic (As3+ and As5+) are highly toxic, whereas the organic forms (e.g. arsenobetaine) are not considered toxic. A robust IC-ICP-MS system was developed and shown to be a highly selective and sensitive technique for determination of trace element species.

Streamlined QbD HPLC Method Development with Automated Data Processing
Gang Xue1, Jeff Harwood1, Charles Cheng1, David Fortin1, Jian Wang1, George Reid1, Mike McBrien2, and Andrey Vazhentsev2

Quality by Design (QbD) has been widely applied to pharmaceutical manufacturing to enhance process robustness, and improve product quality and manufacturing productivity. Recently, there arose tremendous interests from both the pharmaceutical industry and regulatory agents to expand it to analytical methodology.

Characterizing Small Molecules in Biological Extracts using IntelliXtract Data Processing on High Resolution Accurate Mass Time-of-Flight Data
Margaret Antler, Graham A. McGibbon, Vitaly Lashin, Jeffrey S. Patick and Kevin Siek

To detect small molecules in biological extracts, LC/MS performed using high resolution time of flight with accurate mass analysis is a powerful technology. Together with advanced data processing algorithms, accurate mass and relative isotope abundance measurements, molecular formulae can be determined and compounds identified.

The LAB2LAB™Advantage
Dr Brian Everatt1 C.Chem., FRSC, Simon Tullett2

Lab2Lab is a novel approach to submitting and transporting samples for analysis across an entire site. Sample tubes are registered and methods selected, an ELN reference is assigned and the sample tube is placed into the “Sender”. The system transports the samples using low pressure compressed air and directs them to the most appropriate analytical instrumentation available. The analytical results are then automatically returned to the originators ELN.
