A Mass Spectrometer for Elemental Analysis based on Fieldable Technologies
Hilary Brown, Jennifer Speer, John Gerling, and Kenyon Evans-Nguyen

Laser ablation and a Microwave Plasma Torch (MPT) were coupled in order to obtain elemental information from solid samples. The MPT was incorporated as a less costly and more portable alternative to the ICP. MPT was also added to help improve the signal from just the laser ablation alone.

Rapid Identification of Microorganisms by Touch Spray and Paper Spray Ambient Ionization
Ahmed M. Hamid, Alan K. Jarmusch, Valentina Pirro and R. Graham Cooks

The rapid and accurate identification of microorganisms is necessary in order to improve public health. Molecular-based identification allows for rapid patient treatment and provides more accurate diagnoses, two crucial aspects for successful treatment, yet a great challenge. In this work PS-MS, an existing ambient method, and TS-MS, a newly developed technique, are being utilized in the rapid discrimination of microorganisms (<2 min).

Evaluation of an automated SPE method for samples derived from capillary microsampling
Paul-Gerhard Lassahn1, Petra Lombardi1, Winfried Wagner-Redeker1, Marie-Claude Robaudi-Fraschini2, Reto Bolliger3, Guenter Boehm3

In this poster we describe an automated SPE procedure using small, single use cartridges in a modified PAL System liquid handler for the analysis of samples derived from capillary microsampling. Results are compared to results obtained from identical samples processed manually by protein precipitation.

Fingerprinting analytical strategy used for authentication of honey
Oana Romina DINCAa,b, Roxana Elena IONETEa*, Raluca POPESCUa, Radu TAMAIANa, Diana COSTINELa, Gabriel Lucian RADUb

The goal of the current study is mainly to establish potential origin markers, and not to build a model for prediction. This research provides a database for comparison of honey samples from Romania with other honey samples from the world. Data on d13C, d18O and d2H of honey measured by IRMS together with the stable isotopes (deuterium by SNIF-NMR and carbon 13 - IRMS) in ethanol from fermented honeys were reported.

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.
