An improved high-performance liquid chromatographic method for separation of a number of ginsenosides has been developed. The influence of temperature (from 0 to 25 degrees C) on the retention and separation of the ginsenosides was studied by applying a binary mobile phase (acetonitrile/water, 82:18 v/v) and a diol column (LiChrospher 100 Diol). The column(More)
In the present work, human male and female fetal cord blood samples were purified, selectively extracted and separated to examine a fraction of steroids ranging from polar estetrol to relatively non-polar progesterone using solid phase extraction based on C-18 tubes and beta-cyclodextrin driven temperature dependent inclusion chromatography. Resulting UV(More)
The temperature influence on creation of a supramolecular complex in which beta-cyclodextrin (beta-CD) is the host molecule and phenolphtalein (PP) is the guest has been studied in aqueous solution by UV-visible absorption spectroscopy. The decrease of temperature of beta-cyclodextrin-phenolphtalein system resulted in a decrease in absorbance of the UV-vis(More)
A rapid and sensitive reversed-phase high performance liquid chromatographic method has been developed for the determination of metoclopramide in serum. The assay was performed after single extraction with ethyl ether using methyl parahydroxybenzoate as internal standard. Chromatographic separations were performed on C(18) stationary phase with a mobile(More)
In the present work we optimised the separation of battery of key UV non-transparent low-molecular-mass compounds having possible endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) activity or which may be used as the endocrine effect biomarkers. Simple optimization strategy was based on strong temperature effect that is driven by electrostatic interactions between(More)
Microfluidic paper-based analytical devices and micro total analysis systems are relatively new group of analytical tools, capable of analyzing complex biochemical samples containing macromolecules, proteins, nucleic acids, toxins, cells or pathogens. Within one analytical run, fluidic manipulations like transportation, sorting , mixing or separation are(More)
Clinical and metabolomic investigations of complex human fluids require cost-effective methodologies that can rapidly assess the steroid hormone milieu of individual samples. The efficiency of quantification of many steroids is limited using immunoassays as these methods can only measure a single component of biological samples and are dependent upon the(More)
In this paper, an improved total antioxidant potential (TAP) estimation using high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) assay with fluorometric detection has been described. The principle of this method is based on the hydroxyl radicals generated in the Fenton-like reaction and subsequently detected using hydroxyterephthalic acid (HTPA), which is a(More)
The primary prostaglandins PGE(2) and PGF(2 alpha) are metabolized in tissues by a series of enzymatic and non-enzymatic reactions. To measure metabolic rates and individual reaction rates it is necessary to extract the parent prostaglandins and metabolites before the separation and quantification of each compound is achieved. Here we have established and(More)
DPPH is commonly applied for estimation of antioxidant capacity of single and complex biological samples, and changes colour from purple to yellow during reduction to DPPH-H. Importantly, for some samples, for example coloured foods, such reaction cannot be used because of interference from pigments. Therefore, the number of reported quantitative protocols(More)
