Matrix components, particularly salts, proteins and phospholipids, can lead to ion suppression resulting in inaccurate quantitation and reduced detection limits.
Resin-based mixed-mode cation exchange SPE sorbents are widely used for the extraction of basic compounds from biological fluids. The dual retention mechanism allows a two stage interference wash protocol, which results in extremely clean extracts. This poster will investigate the performance of EVOLUTE™ CX for the extraction of a wide range of basic
drugs from plasma, showing high analyte recovery and advanced extract cleanliness. The analyte suite was selected to cover a variety of basic analytes with wide ranging polarities (LogP values). Extract cleanliness experiments were performed showing overall ion suppression, then individual matrix components examined
in terms of protein and phospholipid removal.

This application note describes the extraction of 47 drugs of abuse and metabolites from oral fluid matrix collected using the Intercept Oral Fluid Drug Test Kit (Orasure Technologies), prior to UPLC-MS/MS analysis. The sample preparation is optimised to minimise matrix effects due to the buffers used in the collection device. Estimated LOQs range from 0.1-1 ng/mL for the various analytes.

The method addresses the extraction of all three classes of drugs of abuse from urine using non-polar and cation exchange retention mechanisms on the ISOLUTE HCX mixed mode column. This protocol was optimized to eliminate the use of dichloromethane in the elution of the acidic / neutral drug fraction.
