A high-throughput, simultaneous analysis of carotenoids, chlorophylls and tocopherol using sub two micron core shell technology columns.


PMID 26255696

Abstract

A high-throughput, robust and reliable method for simultaneous analysis of five carotenoids, four chlorophylls and one tocopherol was developed for rapid screening large sample populations to facilitate molecular biology and plant breeding. Separation was achieved for 10 known analytes and four unknown carotenoids in a significantly reduced run time of 10min. Identity of the 10 analytes was confirmed by their UV-Vis absorption spectras. Quantification of tocopherol, carotenoids and chlorophylls was performed at 290nm, 460nm and 650nm respectively. In this report, two sub two micron particle core-shell columns, Kinetex from Phenomenex (1.7μm particle size, 12% carbon load) and Cortecs from Waters (1.6μm particle size, 6.6% carbon load) were investigated and their separation efficiencies were evaluated. The peak resolutions were >1.5 for all analytes except for chlorophyll-a' with Cortecs column. The ruggedness of this method was evaluated in two identical but separate instruments that produced CV<2 in peak retentions for nine out of 10 analytes separated.
