F2-isoprostanes (F2-iPs) comprise four classes of isomers produced non-enzymatically by free radical attack on arachidonic acid, a component of the cell membrane. This paper describes a new method for the quantification of F2-isoprostanes in urine samples from thoroughly diagnosed Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients. The sample pretreatment consisted of(More)
This paper compares the performance of two recently developed algorithms and methods for peak alignment of first-order NMR data of complex biological samples. The NMR spectra of such samples exhibit variations in peak position and peak shape due to variations in the sample matrix and to instrumental instabilities. The first method comprises an alignment of(More)
Methyl malondialdehyde (Me-MDA) is suggested as an internal standard for the determination of the lipid peroxidation product, malondialdehyde (MDA). A procedure for synthesising the Me-MDA sodium salt is described in detail. The purity and identity of the synthesised Me-MDA have been confirmed using nuclear magnetic resonance and UV spectroscopy, and by(More)
On-line gas diffusion has been coupled to a capillary electrophoresis system (CE) via a specially designed interface. The sample is merged with a modifying solution, e.g., a strong acid, in a flow system to transform the analytes of interest into their respective gaseous forms. These transformed, gaseous analytes permeate through a PTFE membrane into an(More)
Fourier Transform infrared spectroscopy has been coupled to on-line capillary electrophoresis (CE) for the separation and detection of natural sugars in orange fruit juices. The CE separation electrolyte comprised 50 mM sodium carbonate buffer adjusted to pH 12.3 with NaOH. Galactose was selected as an internal standard. To ensure tight connections between(More)
A semi-automatic system based on flow injection analysis (FIA) for the transportation of small sample aliquots has been combined with fluorometric, enzymatic methods for blood lactate determination and has been described earlier. In the present study duplicate blood samples were obtained from exercising subjects to enable a comparison of lactate(More)
An improved enzymatic fluorometric method for automated analysis of lactate in perchloric acid extracts of capillary blood with flow injection (FIA) is described. The concentrations of lactate can be measured in as little as 20 microliter capillary blood from an exercising person. Within-day and between-day coefficients of variation are about 2%. The(More)
4-Hydroxnonenal (HNE) is a product of lipid peroxidation in biological systems that causes a variety of harmful biological effects. A method for identifying HNE based on derivatization with the fluorescent reagent dansylhydrazine (5-(dimethylamino)naphthalene-1-sulphonehydrazine (DNSH) followed by micellar electrokinetic chromatography separation(More)
The present study reports the optimization and validation of a dissolution test for selegiline.HCl tablets using a new high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method. Rapid separation of the analyte from sample matrix was achieved in less than 60s using a Cromolith RP-18e monolithic column using UV detection at 220 nm. Thorough validation of the(More)
A contactless conductometric detection (CCD) system for capillary electrophoresis (CE) with a flexible detection cell was applied for the simultaneous determination of small anions and/or cations in rain, surface and drainage water samples. The applied frequency, the amplitude of the input signal, the electrolyte conductivity and electrode distance were(More)
