|Analysis of Fruit Commodities by GC-TOFMS and GCxGC-TOFMS Using QuEChERS Approach|
Doug Staples, Joe Binkley and John Heim
The availability of fruit commodities from a wide variety of sources has increased the need for rapid and accurate screening for pesticides in fruit. Not all fruit commodities are brought to market under the strict guidelines of the United States Department of Agriculture. Determining whether or not the Environmental Protection Agency tolerances for various pesticides have been violated is important in the risk assessment for consumers in the United States.
|Characterization of Nutrients and Actives in Herbal Supplements and Nutriceuticals Using UHPLC-Multi-Reflecting Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry|
Jeffrey S. Patrick, Kevin Siek and Joe Binkley
The qualitative and quantitative analysis of the content of nutritional supplements and alternative medicinal therapies is becoming more important and regulation by the FDA is imminent. High resolution mass spectrometry provides a rapid, selective, and useful mechanism for QC of extracts and finished dosage forms, producing a minable, comprehensive data set.
|Detection and Identification of Dispersants (COREXIT® 9527 and 9500) by GC/MS and LC-MS/MS|
Sky Countryman, Matthew Trass, Seyed Sadjadi, Jeff Layne
Dispersants are plasticizers commonly used to prevent clumping and help dissipate oil slicks. In this work, we used GC/MS and LC-MS/ MS to detect and indentify two of the most widely used dispersants (Corexit 9527 and 9500).
|Ensuring the Quality of Registered Compounds in a Drug Discovery Environment – A Multidisciplinary Approach|
Ryan Sasaki and Tara Sinclair
Lexicon Pharmaceuticals have demonstrated that a practical automated verification system using HPLC, LC/MS, and 1D and 2D NMR can be implemented in an industrial/pharmaceutical environment. This system has proven to be robust, and provides added value to compound collection integrity and quality.
|Highly Accurate Measurements of Ochratoxin A (OTA) in Different Foodstuffs|
Andreas Breidbach, J. Stroka and F. Ulberth
The European Union-Reference Laboratory for Mycotoxins at the Institute of Reference Materials and Measurements of the Joint Research Centers of the European Commission regularly conducts proficiency tests to assess the measurement capabilities of the National Reference Laboratories of the EU-Member States.
|A Triple Ionization Source for LC/MS|
Kaveh Jorabchi, Karl Hanold and Jack Syage
This poster reports the development of a triple ionization source consisting of ESI, APCI and APPI sources. The source uses two probes, one for ESI and a nebulizer/vaporizer for APCI and APPI.
|Dual Dopant Approach for Simultaneous LC-APPI-MS/MS Analysis of Low and High Proton Affinity Pesticides|
Sheng-Suan (Victor) Cai, Kaveh Jorabchi and Jack Syage
The objectives of the work detailed in this poster was to explore dual dopant approach to maximizing APPI sensitivity for simultaneous analysis of low and high proton affinity compounds.
|Reversed-Phase Point-of-use Purifier for the Removal of Trace Organics in High Purity Water|
Coralie Monferran, Cecilia Devaux, Maricar Tarun, Estelle Riche and Daniel Darbouret
Recent developments of Liquid Chromatography instrumentation, such as UHPLC coupled with mass spectrometry, have increased the separation efficiency and sensitivity. Unfortunately, there are some
unwelcome consequences. One of these is the detection of trace contamination in the solvents used to prepare mobile phases. The aim of this work was to design a cartridge which produces high water quality for very sensitive LC-MS applications.
|Fully Automated LC-MS/MS-based Determination of Bosentanand its Metabolites in Dried Blood Spots using the SCAP™ DBS System|
Mirko Glinski, Norbert Ganz, Jasper Dingemanse, Laurent Nicolas and Werner Döbelin
Dried Blood Spot (DBS) analysis is a very promising alternative to conventional whole blood and plasma analysis used in drug discovery and development or later in therapeutic drug monitoring with well documented advantages.
