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 (MIP) have been successfully synthesized toward many different compounds in the last decades. The mechanistic details of selective binding at binding sites are not yet well understood. For this reason the characterization of MIP binding has been mostly phenomenological and this makes the transfer of results between different(More)
Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) have frequently been characterized by quantities which are easily determined from experiments but have no theoretical foundation. This makes it difficult to compare different MIP preparations or to transfer MIP based methods to different experimental conditions. Since the adsorption isotherms of MIPs are markedly(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 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)
The effect of a high-fat meal on the oral bioavailability of deramciclane 30 mg tablet was evaluated in 18 healthy male volunteers in a randomised, single dose, two-way crossover study. The drug was administered following an overnight fast or a standardised high-fat breakfast. The plasma concentrations of deramciclane and N-desmethylderamciclane were(More)
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 versatile approach for the preparation of photoswitchable molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) is proposed where the selective recognition and the photoresponsive function are assumed by two different monomers. As a proof of concept, MIP microspheres were synthesized by precipitation polymerization for recognizing terbutylazine, a triazine-type(More)
Spherical micron sized terbutylazine imprinted polymers have been obtained by copolymerization of acrylates in solvent mixtures containing a highly viscous ('oil') component. The new method requires much less organic solvent than precipitation polymerization to produce spherical MIP particles. Different proportions of oil have been used to clarify its role(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)
