This application note describes the extraction of 96 licit and illicit drugs of abuse from urine prior to UPLC-MS/MS analysis using EVOLUTE® HYDRO CX 96-well plates.
EVOLUTE® HYDRO CX plates offer an efficient way to perform hydrolysis in the well of the extraction plate. This method provides high analyte recovery, reduced extraction time due to the elimination of a sample transfer step as well as the elimination of the column conditioning and equilibration steps, and a reduced risk for sample carryover or cross-contamination due to the elimination of the sample transfer step.

Catecholamines and Metanephrines were analyzed using a LCMS-8060 triple quadrupole mass spectrometer. Calibrators were prepared in synthetic urine and extracted using solid phase extraction. Extractions were performed using weak cation exchange on the EVOLUTE® EXPRESS WCX 10 mg 96-well plate from Biotage.

Most drugs, both licit and illicit, are excreted in urine as glucuronide conjugates. Hydrolysis using beta-glucuronidase converts the glucuronidated metabolites back to their “free” or non-conjugated
form, increasing sensitivity for LC-MS/MS analysis. Hydrolysis using red abalone, abalone, and recombinant beta-glucuronidase enzymes was evaluated using an in-well hydrolysis plate to determine which provided the most efficient hydrolysis of glucuronide metabolites without affecting overall recovery of nonconjugated compounds. A glucuronide control containing 8 glucuronide compounds was used to determine the extent of hydrolysis that occurred. A non-conjugated control containing 96 licit and illicit drugs of abuse was evaluated to determine if signal suppression occurred as a result of enzyme hydrolysis.

Urine samples are neutralized using 0.5 M ammonium acetate and loaded onto weak cation exchange (WCX) Evolute Express plates (Biotage), preconditioned with methanol and water. Samples are washed with 20 mM ammonium acetate and water before elution in 0.5 % formic acid.
