Binding to melanin is considered to be a reason for several adverse effects of drugs and should be known to reduce the failure rate due to inappropriate pharmacokinetics in search for better pharmaceuticals. A new, reliable and convenient method of determination of affinity of drugs and drug candidates to melanin has been proposed employing magnetic beads.(More)
Quantitative structure-retention relationships (QSRR) were proposed for alpha(1)-acid glycoprotein (AGP) column using physicochemical molecular descriptors of the selected drugs and interacting with that column. The set of 52 structurally diverse drug compounds, with experimentally derived logarithms of retention factors (log k) values was considered.(More)
An efficient micropropagation protocol of Cyclopia genistoides (L.) Vent., an indigenous South African shrub of economic importance, was established. In vitro shoot cultures were obtained from shoot tip fragments of sterile seedlings cultured on solid Schenk and Hildebrandt (SH) medium supplemented with 9.84 microM 6-(gamma,gamma-dimethylallylamino)purine(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)
Metabolomics and biomarkers discovery are an integral part of bioanalysis. However, untargeted tissue analysis remains as the bottleneck of such studies due to the invasiveness of sample collection, as well as the laborious and time-consuming sample preparation protocols. In the current study, technology integrating in vivo sampling, sample preparation and(More)
Fluorinated benzoic acids (FBAs) are frequently used as tracers by the oil industry to characterize petroleum reservoirs. The demand for fast, reliable, robust, and sensitive approaches to separate and quantify FBAs in produced water, both in laboratory and field conditions, has not been yet fully satisfied. In this study, for the first time, thin film(More)
The techniques currently used for drug, metabolite, and biomarker determination are based on sample collection, and therefore they are not suitable for repeated analysis because of the high invasiveness. Here, we present a novel method of biochemical analysis directly in organ during operation without need of a separate sample collection step: solid-phase(More)
A fully automated, high-throughput method based on thin-film solid-phase microextraction (SPME) and liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry was developed for simultaneous quantitative analysis of 110 doping compounds, selected from ten classes and varying in physical and chemical properties. Among four tested extraction phases, C18 blades were chosen, as(More)
Quantitative structure-retention relationship (QSRR) is a technique capable of improving the identification of analytes by predicting their retention time on a liquid chromatography column (LC) and/or their properties. This approach is particularly useful when LC is coupled with a high-resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS) platform. The main aim of the(More)
Solid phase microextraction (SPME) has experienced rapid development and growth in number of application areas since its inception over 20 years ago. It has had a major impact on sampling and sample preparation practices in chemical analysis, bioanalysis, food and environmental sciences. A significant impact is expected in clinical analysis as well as(More)
