Analysis of drug panels in urine samples can be challenging, and the trend towards larger panels including multiple drug classes compounds the issues faced during method development.
This white paper examines a number of aspects of sample preparation, and their impact on the success of subsequent LC-MS/MS analysis of broad urine panels.
Section 1 examines the applicability of various sample preparation techniques: supported liquid extraction, reverse phase SPE and mixed-mode SPE, to the various classes of drugs extracted. In addition, hydrolysis approaches: enzyme type and protocol used (time, temperature), are compared.
Mixed-mode reverse phase/cation exchange SPE is widely used for extraction of basic drug classes from urine, but the inclusion of drugs and metabolites that exhibit ‘non-typical’ functionality within urine panels can be problematic. Section 2 examines the impact of various parameters (interference wash strength, elution solvent composition) on analyte retention, elution and extract cleanliness with particular focus on zwitterionic (gabapentin, pregabalin) and non-ionic (carisoprodol, meprobamate) drugs.

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.

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.

This application note describes the extraction of a range of amphetamine-type compounds from whole blood, prior to GC/MS analysis. A protocol that allows the simultaneous extraction of various other drugs of abuse classes: barbiturates, benzodiazepines, cocaine and opiates, is also evaluated.
ISOLUTE® SLE+ columns with 1 mL sample capacity are used to extract whole blood samples following a straightforward sample dilution. No protein precipitation or other pre-treatment is required prior to sample loading. The sample preparation procedure delivers clean extracts, good recoveries and RSD values and LLOQs from 10 ng/mL (analyte dependant).

This application note describes the extraction of a range of amphetamines and metabolites from urine using supported liquid extraction and subsequent analysis by GC/MS. Prior to extraction, a simple oxidation step is performed to eliminate sympathomimetic compounds such as ephedrine and pseudoephedrine so they do not interfere with quantitation of methamphetamine.

Ethyl glucuronide (EtG) and ethyl sulphate (EtS) are specific metabolites formed within the body after the ingestion of alcohol. In forensic toxicology, when tested together they provide more specific evidence of alcohol intake. This application note demonstrates the simultaneous extraction of both EtG and EtS in the same assay and represents further optimization of AN718 which showed single EtG extraction without EtS. Recoveries for EtG range from 90-105% and 80-103% for EtS across two formats of EVOLUTE AX columns with RSDs <10%. The LOQ is 10 ng/mL for EtG and 2 ng/mL for EtS across both EVOLUTE AX formats.
