The ability to extract a broad range of different drugs from a biological matrix allows for the expedited analysis of a patient sample using LC-MS/MS. Typically small molecules are extracted from matrices like urine based on their polarities. A fast and reliable sample preparation method that could be implemented to extract drugs of different polarities from urine could be used as a screening tool to quickly identify the presence of illicit drugs in patient samples using LC-MS-MS.
This poster demonstrates the utility of supported liquid extraction for the extraction of over 30 different acidic, basic and neutral drugs in urine prior to LC-MS/MS.

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.

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.

This poster presents a method for detection of approximately 100 drugs and metabolites in urine using mixed-mode polymeric cation exchange solid phase extraction (SPE).
Four different glucuronidase enzymes and several incubation times and temperatures were evaluated to determine optimum hydrolysis conditions for seven commonly detected glucuronide metabolites. Samples were subjected to offline hydrolysis and SPE (EVOLUTE® EXPRESS CX, Biotage, Charlotte, NC) and results compared to an SPE plate that incorporates in-well hydrolysis (EVOLUTE HYDRO CX, Biotage).

This poster demonstrates that a large urine panel, comprised of 43 DOAs, from multiple drug classes, can be simultaneously screened by mixed-mode cation exchange SPE (using EVOLUTE EXPRESS CX 96 well plates) despite their disparate intermolecular traits, by thoughtfully selecting appropriate organic wash and elution conditions that simultaneously enable sample isolation and detection along with minimizing sample matrix effects.
The extraction method is automated using the Biotage® Extrahera™ Automated sample Preparation Platform.

Buprenorphine and Norbuprenorphine are typically problematic for analysis due to analyte stability issues during sample preparation.
This poster will demonstrate two fast and robust methods for the extraction of buprenorphine and norbuprenorphine in urine (using EVOLUTE EXPRESS CX), oral fluid (using EVOLUTE EXPRESS CX) and whole blood (using ISOLUTE SLE+).

This poster demonstrates the extraction of a range of drugs of abuse from oral fluid collection devices using supported liquid extraction suitable for UPLC-MS/MS analysis. 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.

EVOLUTE® EXPRESS SPE columns and plates combine sorbent wettability with optimized SPE components, allowing better flow consistency and in many cases eliminating the need for SPE column conditioning; thus simplifying and reducing extraction processing. This poster compares the performance of various EVOLUTE EXPRESS column chemistries using 10-500 mg bed weights, in order to investigate whether sorbent conditioning and equilibration steps are truly required.

Most drugs are excreted in urine as glucuronide conjugates. Hydrolysis using a beta-glucuronidase enzyme to convert the metabolites to their “free” form for analysis increases sensitivity. Red abalone (Kura Biotech), abalone (Campbell Scientific), and recombinant (IMCSzyme) beta-glucuronidase enzymes were evaluated to determine which provided the most complete hydrolysis of glucuronide metabolites without effecting the overall recovery of non-conjugated compounds.
EVOLUTE EXPRESS CX 96-well plates were used to extract hydrolysed urine samples, and the impact of th enzymes was compared.

The use of schedule I drugs for patient pain management therapy warrants constant monitoring of therapeutic levels in the patient. Screening patient urine samples for the free drugs is complicated by the metabolism process which converts the free drug to the -glucuronide form. Patient urine samples can be enzymatically hydrolyzed and extracted to detect the drugs using Supported Liquid Extraction (ISOLUTE SLE+) which offers an efficient alternative to traditional liquid-liquid extraction (LLE) for bioanalytical sample preparation. LOQs for recovered drugs ranged from 10 ng/mL to 0.5 ng/mL with recoveries above 80% and RSDs <10%
