We have developed a liposome-based flow injection immunoassay (FIIA) system for quantitation of a clinical analyte, theophylline. With very minor changes in assay format, this procedure can also be used for the quantitation of anti-theophylline. Automated sequential analyses were performed at room temperature with picomole sensitivity and a day-to-day(More)
A molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) using phenytoin as template and methacrylamide as the functional monomer was prepared. The selectivity was measured by comparing capacity factors of phenytoin and other structurally related compounds. The polymer was evaluated as a selective sorbent in molecularly imprinted solid-phase extraction (MISPE). Several(More)
Nifedipine, a calcium-channel blocking drug was analysed in dog plasma after oral dosing with two different formulations. Sample preparation was automated with a laboratory robot. Quantitative determination of the drug was performed on a reversed-phase HPLC system with electrochemical detection (ED) using an internal standard. Validation of the analytical(More)
The use of liposomes as detectable reagents in solid-phase immunoassays has been explored in a flow injection immunoanalysis (FIIA) system. Model calculations are presented for FIIA based on the competitive binding of univalent analyte and multivalent liposomes to immobilized antibodies. Parameters such as binding constants, concentrations of liposomes and(More)
The measurement of sodium ion concentration in urine can provide diagnostic information and guide therapy. Unfortunately, neutral-carrier-based ion-selective electrodes show a large positive drift and loss in selectivity in undiluted urine. The extraction of electrically neutral lipids from the urine into the sensing membrane was suggested as the main(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of food consumption on the pharmacokinetics of Cordaflex 20 mg retard filmtablet in healthy volunteers through measuring nifedipine plasma levels by an HPLC-ED method both after fasting and food ingestion. The food interaction pharmacokinetic study of Cordaflex 20 mg retard filmtablet was carried(More)
A novel technique for the synthesis and testing of large numbers of molecularly imprinted polymers is described requiring much less time than the commonly used miniMIP approach. Instead of vials, the polymers are synthesized on the surface of microfiltration membranes in multiwell filterplates. The thin polymeric films enable accelerated template removal.(More)
Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) were synthesized in 24-well glass fiber membrane filter plates to obtain a novel type of solid phase extraction device for the cleanup of propranolol. Sample processing parameters like residence time during sample loading, sample volume, pH, sample solvent, type and amount of washing and elution solvents were(More)
A solid-phase extraction sample preparation method using a molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) selective for the triazine type pesticide terbutylazine has been developed. The method involves preconcentration from large volumes of water samples on a C18 disk coupled to selective clean-up on the MIP. The method has been optimised by studying the recovery and(More)
A rapid and highly sensitive LC-MS-MS method using deuterium-labelled internal standards was developed and evaluated for the simultaneous determination of deramciclane and its pharmacologically active metabolite (N-desmethylderamciclane). The sample preparation based on liquid-liquid extraction was carried out with an off-line robotic system. Evaluation of(More)
