The use of LC/MS analysis in the clinical lab has increased exponentially over the last 10 years. Modern mass spectrometers are extremely sensitive allowing low level detection of many target analytes. However, this sensitivity can come at a price, in that levels of contamination not previously detected with less sensitive instruments can now have larger impact on analysis. The complexity of common matrices such as plasma/serum and urine while presenting different challenges can have a marked influence on method performance.
As a result sample preparation is an extremely important part of the process in order to provide robust methods. This seminar focuses on some of the method development challenges our lab faced when looking at two clinical assays:
Endogenous steroid hormone extraction from serum, and catecholamine extraction from plasma and urine.
Particular emphasis is placed on the various sample preparation options we looked at for the extraction of these analytes. During optimization of the extraction process we investigated analyte recovery, co-extractable matrix components, HPLC column degradation, calibration curve performance and limits of quantitation.

This application note describes the extraction of a panel of 19 steroid hormones from human serum using EVOLUTE® EXPRESS ABN solid phase extraction plates prior to LC/MS analysis. The simple sample preparation procedure delivers clean extracts and analyte recoveries greater than 80% with RSDs lower than 10% for the majority of analytes. Linearity of >0.99 is achieved for all analytes in the range 5–5000 pg/mL.

This application note describes the extraction of a panel of steroid hormones from human serum using ISOLUTE® SLE+ Supported Liquid Extraction plates prior to LC/MS-MS analysis. The simple sample preparation procedure delivers clean extracts and high, reproducible recoveries (>75%, RSD <10% ) for all analytes in human serum, with linearity >0.99 in the range 5–5000 pg/mL.

This poster demonstrates a rapid and reliable sample preparation method using Supported Liquid Extraction (ISOLUTE SLE+) to extract a suite of 30 hormone analytes from a hydrolyzed urine matrix. Single injection analysis by LC-MS/MS shows that matrix effects are eliminated by the ISOLUTE SLE+ protocol and that analyte recovery and sensitivity have excellent clinical utility.
