Routine testing for drugs of abuse (DOA) in urine is commonly
performed by many clinical, forensic, and pain management
laboratories. The method of testing varies but can often provide
unwanted load stress for day-to-day operation in labs. Most seek
simplified yet reliable and robust modes of sample preparation and
analysis. ASMS, 2020.

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.

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.

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.

This poster evaluates 3 different sample preparation approaches (ISOLUTE SLE+, EVOLUTE EXPRESS ABN, EVOLUTE EXPRESS CX) for extraction of large multi-drug urine panels.
Each approach is assessed in terms of suitability for extraction of analytes with different different properties (pka, LogP etc).
