Flash chromatography is the primary technology for separating, purifying, and isolating both synthetic organic compounds and natural products. Until recently, automated flash purification systems were limited to user-selected detection and collection wavelengths to fractionate separated compounds from sample mixtures.

in both 2-D and 3-D prior to any post flash analysis. With this
information chemists quickly know if a fraction contains a pure
product suitable for further mass and structure confirmation

knowledge improves synthesis throughput and avoids any
embarrassment of submitting impure fractions for analytical

that fraction collection processes cannot distinguish

Interest in peptide-based therapeutics has risen dramatically over the last decade. More specifically, significant energy has been dedicated to cyclic peptides, their synthesis, their biological activity, and their biological stability as potential alternatives to their linear counterparts. However, synthesizing a cyclic peptide creates significant challenges not encountered in linear peptide synthesis.
Herein we present a synthesis of oxytocin describing optimization for fully automated, on-resin disulfide bond formation utilizing Branches™, a unique feature enabling visualization and specific programing for cyclic and branched peptide synthesis. We will highlight the transferability of this optimized synthesis to larger scale syntheses and conclude with the fully automated synthesis of cyclized oxytocin incorporating an isotopically labeled Leu residue, enabling use as an internal standard in MS experiments.

ISOLUTE Confirm HCX columns are based on cation exchange and C8 mixed mode chemistries. Basic drugs are therefore retained by two primary retention mechanisms - ionic and non-polar. This allows a more rigorous interference elution regime to be used, leading to a very clean final extract, as many non-polar interferences which are retained by a non-polar interaction alone, can be eluted selectively, prior to elution of the drug.

It is well known that traditional liquid-liquid extraction (LLE) provides very clean extracts prior to LC/MS analysis. Supported liquid extraction is analogous to traditional LLE, however, analyte partitioning takes place using an inert support material, rather than two immiscible liquids. This provides excellent extraction efficiencies while alleviating many of the tedious liquid handling issues associated with LLE.

The extraction of basic drugs from biological fluids using a purely non-polar retention mechanism (e.g. C4, C8 or C18) can lead to extracts that contain a large amount of non-polar co-extracted material that can interfere with subsequent analysis. Conversely, extraction mechanisms based on ion exchange interactions can be non-robust due to the variable ionic strength of the sample matrix.
