Description

Analysis Note A fast and robust LC/MS/MS method was developed for the measurement of estradiol in human serum using Titan C18 1.9 μm columns. Ultra high purity LC-MS solvents were used to supply low background interference and low particulate contaminants for robust, trouble-free operation. Cerilliant certified reference material grade standards provided reliable quantification.
