A solid phase microextraction (SPME) method followed by LC-MS/MS analysis was developed to determine the concentration of tranexamic acid (TA) in plasma. The use of a new biocompatible C18 coating allowed the direct extraction from complex biological samples without prior sample preparation; no matrix effect was observed. The results revealed that SPME was(More)
Biocompatible C18-polyacrylonitrile (PAN) coating was used as the extraction phase for an automated 96-blade solid phase microextraction (SPME) system with thin-film geometry. Three different methods of coating preparation (dipping, brush painting, and spraying) were evaluated; the spraying method was optimum in terms of its stability and reusability. The(More)
Development of a straightforward strategy for simultaneous quantitative analysis of nonesterified fatty acids (NEFA) species in biofluids is a challenging task because of the extreme complexity of fatty acid distribution in biological matrices. In this study, we present a direct immersion solid phase microextraction method coupled to a liquid(More)
INTRODUCTION The controversy still surrounds the optimal dosing regimen of tranexamic acid (TA), primary antifibrinolytic agent used in high-risk surgeries. This study compares the pharmacokinetics profile obtained from the group of patients undergoing heart surgery with the use of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) with the theoretical model currently used as an(More)
Complex biological samples include thousands of metabolites that range widely in both physiochemical properties and concentration. Simultaneously analyzing metabolites with different properties using a single analytical method is very challenging. The analytical process for metabolites comprises multiple steps including sampling, quenching, sample(More)
This work presents the development and evaluation of biocompatible polyacrylonitrile-polystyrene-divinylbenzene (PAN-PS-DVB) and polyacrylonitrile-phenylboronic acid (PAN-PBA) coatings for automated 96-blades (thin-film) solid phase microextraction (SPME) system, using high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) coupled with tandem mass spectrometry(More)
In chemical analysis, sample preparation is frequently considered the bottleneck of the entire analytical method. The success of the final method strongly depends on understanding the entire process of analysis of a particular type of analyte in a sample, namely: the physicochemical properties of the analytes (solubility, volatility, polarity etc.), the(More)
The use of thin-film solid-phase microextraction (SPME) as the sampling preparation step before direct analysis in real time (DART) was evaluated for the determination of two prohibited doping substances, cocaine and methadone, in urine samples. Results showed that thin-film SPME improves the detectability of these compounds: signal-to-blank ratios of 5(More)
BACKGROUND A high-throughput bioanalytical method using 96-blade thin film microextraction (TFME) and LC-MS/MS for the analysis of repaglinide (RPG) and two of its main metabolites was developed and used for an in vitro metabolism study. RESULTS The target analytes were extracted from human microsomal medium by a 96-blade-TFME system employing the(More)
