This poster describes the development and validation of a method for supported liquid extraction of serum cortisol, with analysis by UPLC-MS/MS. The aim of this study was to develop a candidate reference method that could then be used to underpin the UK NEQAS Cortisol scheme.

This methodology has been designed to give an effective and efficient supported liquid extraction protocol for the clean-up and concentration of salivary cortisol levels. Cortisol is a steroid hormone that when measured from saliva can be used as an indication of stress. Analyte recoveries achieved using this method ranged from 96-99% with RSDs below 3% (n=7) for all analytes.

Cortisol is a steroid hormone that in urine can be used to diagnose hyper or hypo cortisol diseases such as Cushing’s Syndrome. This methodology has been designed to give an effective and efficient supported liquid extraction protocol for the clean-up and concentration of urinary cortisol levels. Analyte recoveries achieved using this method ranged from 99-101% with RSDs below 5% for all analytes.

Free urinary cortisol levels can be an indicator of a variety of disorders, such as Cushing Syndrome. This poster presents a simple method for the extraction of cortisol from urine demonstrating good recoveries and low ion suppression. LC-MS/MS analysis was performed using a Waters 2795 Liquid Handling Unit coupled to a Quattro Ultima Pt triple quadrupole MS using electrospray ionization, operated in the MRM mode. Supported liquid extraction method development resulted in recoveries greater than 90% for cortisol spiked urine. Calibration curves constructed using this method from 25-2000 ng/mL, demonstrated excellent linearity with coefficients of determination greater than 0.99.
