High-performance liquid chromatography coupled to ion spray mass spectrometry for the determination of colchicine at ppb levels in human biofluids.

An original method based upon high-performance liquid chromatography coupled to ion spray mass spectrometry (HPLC-ISP-MS) has been developed for the identification and quantification of colchicine (COL) in human blood, plasma or urine. After single-step liquid-liquid extraction by dichloromethane at pH 8.0 using tofisopam (TOF) as an internal standard… CONTINUE READING
