The method for determination of low concentrations of chloramphenicol in bovine and porcine urine was developed. Sample cleanup was performed by Molecular Imprinted Polymer (MIP) columns. Confirmatory analyses were conducted using GC/MS-NCI after derivatisation (silylation). The described method was fully
Infliximab and Adalimumab monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) are used widely to treat rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and many autoimmune diseases by binding to tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNFα) to reduce the inflammatory response.
LC-MS/MS is a powerful tool that brings numerous benefits to the clinical sample analysis arena. However, due to the complexity of the instrumentation there are some unique challenges that also accompany these benefits. Even following sample extraction and cleanup, matrix
Bioanalysis for large molecules, like Proteins or specific Biotherapeutics, refer to a set of methods, assays, and procedures that enable scientists to analyze specific proteins found in living organisms and the biochemical reactions underlying life processes.
As new “bath salt” drugs such as methylone, ethylone, mephedrone, butylone and other methcathinone analogs increase in popularity, toxicologists require native and labeled certified reference materials to accurately identify and quantify the new compounds in patient samples.
The field of proteomics is continually looking for new ways to investigate protein dynamics within complex biological samples. Recently, many researchers have begun to use RNA interference (RNAi) as a method of manipulating protein levels within their samples, but the
Various plastics used as barriers to the production of off-flavors in light exposed milk were examined using HS-SPME with a new Carboxen®/PDMS coated Nitinol fiber followed by GC-MS analysis allowing detection of low MW analytes at levels <1 ng/mL.
We have developed Certified Reference Materials (CRMs) of fully intact milk proteins that allow accurate testing of the most critical proteins in infant formula; help labs to develop and test infant formula products with high accuracy, while ensuring legal and
Clinical laboratories are beginning to reap the benefits of LC-MS in terms of its sensitivity, specificity, throughput, and potential to reduce cost per sample. The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the LC-MS analysis of Warfarin in plasma samples
Bisphenol A (BPA) plastic is controversial in food and beverage containers. This study demonstrates SPME of BPA from an energy drink using an overcoated PDMS/DVB fiber, followed by GC/MS/MS analysis using SLB-PAHms GC Column.
