The ability to extract a broad range of different drugs from a biological matrix allows for the expedited analysis of a patient sample using LC-MS/MS. Typically small molecules are extracted from matrices like urine based on their polarities. A fast and reliable sample preparation method that could be implemented to extract drugs of different polarities from urine could be used as a screening tool to quickly identify the presence of illicit drugs in patient samples using LC-MS-MS.
This poster demonstrates the utility of supported liquid extraction for the extraction of over 30 different acidic, basic and neutral drugs in urine prior to LC-MS/MS.

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.

In postmortem cases, where drugs or pesticides have been used for
their poisonous properties, traditional matrices such as urine and
whole blood may be inappropriate for qualitative and quantitative
analysis. As the site of metabolism for most drugs and toxins, the
liver may provide more insight to cause of death than other bodily

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.

Testing for drugs of abuse in oral fluids can strongly benefit the criminal justice field as a less invasive and cost-effective approach for drug detection when compared to blood or urine sampling. Oral fluid analysis has facilitated laboratory analysis for many drugs of abuse and is a constantly evolving analysis procedure which benefits from increasingly sensitive methods of detection. The Laser Diode Thermal Desorption (LDTD) source combined with Mass spectrometry is presented as a new screening tool for drug analysis in Oral Fluids. Analysis speed of LDTD provides accurate results in seconds in combination with exceptional specificity of MS instruments make a powerful platform for the screening of different drugs of abuse and new emerging drugs. Different extraction procedures are available; however those methods depend on specific drug conditions: basic or acid drugs / hydrophilic or hydrophobic. A new extraction approach, Supported Liquid Extraction (SLE+) is evaluated as generic extraction procedure.
