This review article summarizes the recent progress on bioanalytical LC-MS/MS methods using underivatized silica columns and aqueous/organic mobile phases. Various types of polar analytes were extracted by using protein precipitation (PP), liquid/liquid extraction (LLE) or solid-phase extraction (SPE) and were then analyzed using LC-MS/MS on the silica(More)
A liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry method (LC-MS-MS) was developed and validated for measuring warfarin (WAR) enantiomers (R-WAR and S-WAR) in human EDTA plasma. Liquid-liquid extraction using ethyl ether was used to extract the analytes from the plasma. Baseline resolution of S- and R-WAR as well as the internal standard enantiomers (S- and(More)
This article presents an analytical approach that used chemical derivatization to enhance mass spectrometric (MS) response in electrospray ionization (ESI) mode of 1-hydroxypyrene (1-OHP), a commonly used biomarker to monitor human exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). The enhancement successfully enabled the desired detection of 50 pg/mL in(More)
In vitro metabolic stability experiments using microsomes or other liver preparations are important components in the discovery and lead-optimization stages of compound selection in the pharmaceutical industry. Currently, liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometric (LC-MS/MS) support of in vitro metabolic stability studies primarily involves the(More)
An ultra-sensitive liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) method for the analysis of oral contraceptive ethinyl estradiol (EE) was developed and validated over the curve range of 2.5-500 pg/mL using 1 mL of human plasma sample. Ethinyl estradiol and the internal standard, ethinyl estradiol tetra-deuterated (EE-d4), were extracted from the(More)
A bioanalytical method using automated sample transferring, automated liquid/liquid extraction (LLE) and hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry was developed for the determination of fluconazole in human plasma. Samples of 0.05 ml were transferred into 96-well plate using automatic liquid handler (Multiprobe II). Automated(More)
A sensitive, simple, fast and rugged hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (HILIC-MS/MS) method for the determination of paroxetine was developed and validated over curve range 0.050-50 ng/mL using only 0.4 mL plasma. This is the first published LC-MS/MS method and the low limit of quantitation of this method is 10-fold(More)
An HPLC method for the quantitation of warfarin enantiomers in human plasma has been developed and validated. Baseline separation of S- and R-warfarin was achieved on a silica-bonded beta-cyclodextrin column with a mobile phase of acetonitrile-acetic acid-triethylamine (1000:3:2.5, v/v/v). The detection was performed at 320 nm. The established linearity(More)
A simple, rapid and specific high-performance liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS-MS) has been developed and validated for the determination of ketoconazole in human plasma. The method used diethyl ether to extract the ketoconazole and the internal standard (I.S.) R51012 from alkalinized plasma sample. The LC separation was on(More)
A high-throughput bioanalytical method based on automated sample transfer, automated solid phase extraction, and hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (HILIC-MS/MS) analysis, has been developed for the determination of cetirizine, a selective H(1)-receptor antagonist. Deuterated cetirizine (cetirizine-d(8)) was synthesized(More)
