BACKGROUND The Gyrolab™ workstation benefits from fully automated transfer of reagents and samples originating from a storage microplate onto a compact disc containing solid-phase microstructures composed of a 15 nl streptavidin-derivitized bead bed. RESULTS This paper describes the development, full validation and use of the method in a regulated(More)
BACKGROUND The cardioprotective effects of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and analogs have been previously reported. We tested the hypothesis that albiglutide, a novel long half-life analog of GLP-1, may protect the heart against I/R injury by increasing carbohydrate utilization and improving cardiac energetic efficiency. METHODS/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS(More)
The 2015 9th Workshop on Recent Issues in Bioanalysis (9th WRIB) took place in Miami, Florida with participation of over 600 professionals from pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies, biotechnology companies, contract research organizations and regulatory agencies worldwide. It is once again a 5-day week long event - a full immersion bioanalytical(More)
The 2014 8th Workshop on Recent Issues in Bioanalysis (8th WRIB), a 5-day full immersion in the evolving field of bioanalysis, took place in Universal City, California, USA. Close to 500 professionals from pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies, contract research organizations and regulatory agencies worldwide convened to share, review, discuss and(More)
BACKGROUND For quantitative bioanalysis utilizing MS, the instrument of choice is typically a triple quadruple mass spectrometer. However, advances in high-resolution MS have allowed sensitivity and dynamic ranges to approach that of triple quadrupole instruments. RESULTS A matrix-free protein digest, a digested therapeutic protein and the intact peptide(More)
From fits of drug transport kinetics across confluent MDCKII-hMDR1-NKI and Caco-2 cell monolayers we estimated the levels of efflux active P-glycoprotein (P-gp) in these two cell lines (companion paper). In the present work, we compared the efflux active P-gp number to the total P-gp level, using liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry, and showed(More)
BACKGROUND Camphanic acid chloride has proven to be an efficient chiral derivatization reagent for determination of stereoisomers. RESULTS The utility of chemical derivatization of various stereoisomers containing hydroxy functional groups with camphanic acid chloride in the presence or absence of a base is highlighted. This procedure is shown to be(More)
BACKGROUND Domain antibodies (dAbs; ∼10-15 kDa) are made up of the variable heavy chain or the variable light chain of the antibody structure, and retain binding capability. dAbs have proved difficult to detect in plasma using immunoassay without specific antibodies raised against the dAb. RESULTS A sensitive and selective UPLC-MS/MS method for the(More)
