Effective removal of residual water from organic solvents is critical to achieve optimal recoveries for water soluble compounds. Sodium sulfate has been the standard technique for removing residual water from solvent extracts for many years; however, it has several major drawbacks. Water soluble analytes in the residual water phase can become adsorbed in the sodium sulfate, leading to lower recoveries.

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.

Pesticides, including insecticides, herbicides and fungicides are used extensively to increase agricultural yields. The total world usage of pesticides in 2007 was approximately 5.2 billion pounds with the US consuming approximately 22% of the total.1 The wide use of pesticides yields concern that drinking water sources will become contaminated, exposing the population to hazardous substances that may cause cancer.

Analysis of the perfluorinated alkyl acids listed in EPA Method 537 along with fluorotelomeric alcohols and perfluorinated sulfonates were extracted using SPE (using ISOLUTE 101 500 mg/ 6 mL SDVB SPE columns) and analyzed on the LCMS 8045. Minimum Detection Limits(MDL) ranged from 0.69 to 3.25 ppt. Extraction recoveries were greater than 80% for all compounds, with surrogate recoveries within 10% of the true value.

This application note demonstrates the use of automated solid phase extraction for a variety of pharmaceutical compounds in drinking water,
wastewater and surface water. The criteria specified in US EPA Method 1694 was met, even at very low concentrations. For lower concentrations a larger sample of water may be processed.
