    Urine Samples

    Highlighted Applications

    Analysis of drug panels in urine samples can be challenging, and the trend towards larger panels including multiple drug classes compounds the issues faced during method development.

    Current Methodologies for Drugs of Abuse Urine Testing

    This white paper explores different sample preparation techniques and methodologies for over 100 drugs in urine.



    Scale Down Your Extraction. Enhance your Productivity

    Extraction of 49 drugs from urine samples, with elution volume of just 30 µL. Microelution SPE can improve productivity without compromising analyte sensitivity or extract cleanliness.


    Urine Hydrolysis: Does it matter how you do it?

    Urine hydrolysis is performed to eliminate glucuronide drug metabolites before analysis, and it is key part of the sample preparation process. With today's advanced enzymes, hydrolysis can be much faster, and even be performed at room temperature. This poster illustrates how these enzymes can be used in a fully automated hydrolysis and clean up process.


    Urine Sample Prep for GC-MS Analysis

    GC-MS methods have been popular for analysis of drugs of abuse in urine for many years. But have you thought about updating your sample prep methods? Our application notes describe simple robust procedures for all the common drug classes:

    Cocaine and Metabolites
    Phencyclidine (PCP)
