Whether you’re testing food, water, or pharmaceuticals, success often depends on getting back to basics. So whatever your separation challenge, your choice of liquid chromatography (LC) column can make all the difference. Our Quasar portfolio of LC columns allows you to achieve rugged and reproducible results – batch to batch and column to column – with an all-encompassing, flexible solution that meets the diverse, changing needs of analysis. Ultrapure silica-based Quasar columns deliver a comprehensive range of chemistries, together with state-of-the art, optimized bonding technology to give you a versatile, high-performing analytical solution for your increasingly complex samples. For flexibility, we provide a wide range of column sizes, including shorter columns packed with smaller particle sizes for shorter run times and better productivity. Plus, our scalable columns facilitate easy method transfer between HPLC and UHPLCtechnology platforms – and the smaller particle sizes means optimized sensitivity for those applications. Whatever your separation need, we have a chemistry or dimension to fill it.
The current trend in liquid chromatography is towards the achievement of higher kinetic efficiency and shorter analysis time. Different types of column packings are now available for attaining very fast and high resolution separations without changing instruments, worrying about high backpressure or compromising column longevity. In recent developments of particle technology, the use of superficially porous particles has received considerable attention. This white paper gives an overview about the theory behind the success of superficially porous particles technology and presents a summary of its latest applications.
This application note will concentrate on the potency identification and quantification of THC and CBD in cannabis by Gas Chromatography. Other application notes will cover potency by HPLC, pesticide analysis and residual solvent analyses. Analysis of cannabis has taken on new importance in light of legalized marijuana in several states of the USA. Cannabis contains several different components classed as cannabinoids. Primary cannabinoids of interest are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabinol (CBN). Positive identification and quantification of the THC/CBD ratio is a primary objective in the analysis of cannabis. Cannabis is analyzed for several different purposes.
This application describes an analytical method for the chromatographic separation and quantitative monitoring of seven primary cannabinoids, including THC and THC-A, in cannabis extracts by HPLC with PDA detection. Naturally occurring cannabinoids, the main biologically active component of the cannabis plant, form a complex group of closely related compounds, of which 113 are known and 70 are well described. Of these, the primary focus has been on ?9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), as the primary active ingredient due to its pharmacological and toxicological characteristics, upon which strict legal limits have been enforced.
Measurement of metanephrines and normetanephrine in plasma is challenging due to the low physiological concentrations, their hydrophilic nature1, and time consuming traditional sample preparation. With use of the PerkinElmer QSight® 220 triple quadrupole mass spectrometer, LC-MS/MS analysis was performed using the recently advanced solid phase extraction (SPE) sorbent technology (“load, wash, elute”) method protocol. As a result low levels of ME and NOR are detectable in plasma with short sample preparation and LC run time. This LC-MS/MS method provides a fast, sensitive, accurate, and reproducible solution for the analysis of ME and NOR in plasma.
Water polluted by herbicides leach and runoff can cause human health problems including cancer tumors, reproduction deformity, disruption of the endocrine system and DNA damage. This application presents a sensitive and robust liquid chromatography method to test nine widely used herbicides (Figure 1), using a 3 µm UHPLC column to achieve very high throughput at a low flow rate to reduce testing time and solvent consumption. The throughput is compared to that of a conventional C18 HPLC column. Method conditions and performance data including precision and linearity, are presented.
Urine is the matrix of choice as it can be collected easily and in large volumes. The variations within the urine matrix can adversely impact chromatographic separation and LC-MS/MS signal. The present study demonstrates that a simple “dilute and shoot” method coupled with the high sensitivity QSight® 220 triple quadrupole mass spectrometer system eliminates many of the complexities of sample preparation without compromising quantitation quality.
In this application, we describe a technique for the monitoring of six cannabinoids, including THC and CBD, in hemp seed oil by HPLC with PDA detection. Figure 1 shows the chemical structures for the six cannabinoids. In recent years, scientific knowledge regarding the composition and health benefits of edible hemp products has significantly increased. Hemp seed oil has been promoted as a good source of nutritious omega-6 and omega-3 polyunsaturated acids, and may be a cleaner, more sustainable alternative to fish oil.
The present research study provides a much simplified approach whereby a highly sensitive LC-MS/MS triple quadrupole mass spectrometer is used to measure directly the methadone and EDDP concentrations through the dried blood spot (DBS) samples.
Knowing the concentration of hexavalent chromium in environmental systems and samples which will be consumed is more important than knowing the total chromium concentration. This is especially true for drinking water. This work describes the use of LC-ICP-MS to measure both trivalent and hexavalent chromium in drinking waters, with the goal of presenting a suitable methodology for analyzing the range of concentrations encompassed by the new legislation.
This application note outlines a rapid LC-MS/MS research method utilizing the QSight® 220 triple quadrupole mass spectrometer. The developed method provides exceptional results for the quantitation of methotrexate in serum especially in terms of LLOQs and linearity.
