GC/MS is still a mainstay in forensic analysis for drugs of abuse
testing in urine. Historically silica-based solid phase extraction
(SPE) columns have been used for these target analytes, the exact
choice being dependent on drug functionality. This poster aims to compare various sample preparation techniques for this analysis. ASMS, 2020.

This poster compares sample preparation options for the extraction of a panel of endogenous steroids from serum. LC-MS/MS parameters were investigated for increased sensitivity: MRM transitions, chromatography and mobile phase additives for use with positive and negative ionisation modes.
Particular emphasis was placed on the sample preparation to
provide high reproducible recoveries whilst minimizing matrix effects and co-extracted materials such as proteins and phospholipids. Solid phase extraction was compared to supported liquid extraction in terms of recoveries, ion suppression, phospholipid content, calibration curve performance and overall sensitivity.

This poster summarizes various sample preparation strategies for the
extraction of MMA from serum without the necessity for derivatization, prior to LC-MS/MS analysis. A range of sample preparation techniques of varying complexity were evaluated: protein precipitation, phospholipid depletion, supported liquid extraction and solid phase extraction using both silica and polymer-based mixed-mode anion exchange chemistries.
Method performance was evaluated for evaporative effects, assay recovery, ion suppression and phospholipid removal.

There are a wide range of volatile and semi-volatile contaminants finding their way into both terrestrial bodies and water sources worldwide. In the United States (US), the contaminants are analyzed
according to stipulated US-EPA methods. In the European Union (EU), a large number of these same compounds are tested according to the European Water Framework Directive. Though these analytes are approached differently from a regulatory perspective, it is clear that background monitoring occurs on a global basis. Initial extraction of these analytes depends on the matrix being analyzed and is often a multifaceted process, but ultimately analysts are presented with some form of extraction/organic solvent they must concentrate to achieve instrumental limits of quantification. Presented within this technical note are the results of such an evaporative process using the new Biotage TurboVap® II.

Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are found throughout the environment and are recognized as a serious health threat. They accumulate in animals and plants and become more concentrated as they progress up the food chain. PCBs can be found in the fatty tissues of human populations in all industrial countries, and they can be passed from mother to fetus through the placenta and to an infant through breast milk. They have been introduced into the environment mainly through the use of Aroclor products.

At the Forensic Medicine Lab at Toho University, researchers use ISOLUTE® SLE+ columns from Biotage. When dealing with samples that easily form emulsions like urine or blood, it allows researchers to use the established liquid-liquid extraction technique, saving significant amount of time on analysis. We spoke with the Head of the Forensic Medicine Lab Professor Masaru Terada.

Evaporative crosstalk is well-to-well cross contamination
during extract evaporation after SLE or SPE extraction in a 96
well plate. It is often observed with volatile analytes like
methamphetamine and amphetamine, but it can also occur
with other drugs and metabolites when urine samples have
very high analyte concentrations. ASMS, 2020.
