With the de-criminalization of recreational cannabis, containing the hallucinogen THC, and other cannabinoids with purported medicinal value, e.g. CBD (Figure 1), in several states a need for higher purity “products” has become a necessity. Current technology uses extraction with supercritical fluids or other non-supercritical solvents to remove the products of interest from other endogenous species such as lipids, terpenes, and chlorophylls as well as pesticides.
These techniques help clean up raw extracts and isolate cannabinoids with higher-purity but not to the levels desired by many producers so there is a developing need for a secondary purification step.

Endogenous phospholipids present in biological fluids are a major problem in LCMS/ MS analysis as they are often very difficult to remove during sample preparation. When phospholipids are not removed, they retain very strongly on reversed phase analytical columns. If high organic (end of run) washes are not incorporated into the LC methods these matrix components may elute in subsequent analyses causing regions of suppression/enhancement leading to inaccurate quantitation. This poster evaluates the use of polymer-based solid phase extraction (SPE) sorbents, incorporating hydrophobic and various mixedmode retention mechanisms to address the problems associated with phospholipid removal.

Endogenous phospholipids (outline structure shown in
Figure 1.) present in biological fluids are a major problem
in LC-MS/MS analysis. Due to their strong retention
characteristics in reversed phase chromatography
phospholipids tend not to elute as discrete peaks and are
often very difficult to separate from analytes of interest.
This co-elution often leads to areas of suppression or enhancement in the chromatogram which in turn can cause
quantitation issues. Supported liquid extraction (SLE) is an
analogous technique to traditional liquidliquid
extraction. This poster compares phospholipid removal using a wide variety of solvent combinations, pH control and polar extraction solvents on supported liquid extraction plates

Unlike some sample preparation techniques, SLE allows for the simultaneous extraction of cross-functional analytes in a single extraction protocol without forfeiting extract cleanliness.
The target analyte list includes benzodiazepines, z drugs, amphetamines, cathinones, opiates, cocaine, buprenorphine, PCP, THC-COOH, fentanyl and ketamine.

Matrix components, particularly salts, proteins and
phospholipids, can lead to ion suppression resulting in
inaccurate quantitation and reduced detection limits.
Resin-based mixed-mode cation exchange SPE sorbents
are widely used for the extraction of basic compounds
from biological fluids. The dual retention mechanism
allows a two stage interference wash protocol, which
results in extremely clean extracts.
This poster will investigate the performance of
EVOLUTE™ CX for the extraction of a wide range of basic
drugs from plasma, showing high analyte recovery and
advanced extract cleanliness. The analyte suite was
selected to cover a variety of basic analytes with wide
ranging polarities (LogP values). Extract cleanliness
experiments were performed showing overall ion
suppression, then individual matrix components examined
in terms of protein and phospholipid removal.

This poster evaluates the extraction of a range of drugs of abuse from hydrolyzed and nonhydrolyzed urine using a novel flow through scavenging product, ISOLUTE® HYDRO DME+. Matrix component removal in terms of creatinine and urea, salt residue, pigmentation associated with urobillin content and protein removal will be demonstrated.

Methylisothiazolinone (MI) is used in a variety of personal care products, such as sunscreens, lotions, cosmetics. MI is a cytotoxin and as a result there is concern because of sensitization and allergic reactions as well as cell and nerve damage. A percentage of the population is at risk from contact dermatitis when exposed to this compound at sufficient concentrations. This poster describes the use of ISOLUTE SLE+ for extraction of MI from sunscreen.

Amphetamine, methamphetamine and Ecstasy continue to be widely abused in many parts of the world. Urine analysis is the most popular approach to determining drug intake. This poster examines various sample preparation approaches in the analysis of amphetamines prior to gas chromatography-mass spectrometry.
Comparisons were performed between silica-based and polymer-based SPE (ISOLUTE HCX and EVOLUTE EXPRESS CX) as well as supported liquid extraction (SLE, ISOLUTE SLE+).

Traditionally the analysis of aldosterone and angiotensin (for plasma renin activity measurement) are performed separately. However, the relationship of the aldosterone-to-renin-ratio is a very useful tool to help define the cause of secondary hypertension. This poster compares sample preparation options for the simultaneous extraction of Angiotensin I, II and Aldosterone from plasma.

For as long as column chromatography has been practiced by
organic and medicinal chemists there has been a concern that too
much methanol in the solvent system will dissolve the column’s
silica. This concern has come about because chemists often find a
solid white precipitate in collected fractions after purification. This
phenomenon is usually noticed when dichloromethane and
methanol are used as the mobile phase solvents.
In this poster we will show the results of a study that evaluated the
degree of dissolution for both granular and spherical silica in
methanol and dichloromethane.

This poster describes an improved workflow for the analysis of
drugs of abuse from hair. Implementation of bead homogenization along with automated sample preparation allowed for simplified methodology. The direct solvent extraction approach avoids the need for pre-concentration while maintaining desired LOQs with either 200 or
400 μL of hair extract.

Hair analysis is growing in popularity due to the non-invasive nature of the sample collection. Although not used as routinely as other matrices such as blood or urine it does have advantages in that the matrix can indicate prolonged drug exposure. NCFM 2020, Reykjavik, Iceland

Sample preparation for hair analysis is often lengthy involving multiple manual labor steps from cutting, washing, homogenization/pulverization, digestion, sample extraction and analysis. This poster aims to demonstrate a streamlined sample
preparation workflow for hair analysis.
The workflow is evaluated using a suite of drugs of abuse, including THC and metabolites.
