LC-MS/MS Analysis of Paraquat and Diquat without Ion-Pairing Reagents

LC-MS/MS analysis of paraquat and diquat herbicides is an important tool for protecting human and environmental health. However, the ion pairing reagents that are commonly used to improve retention, resolution, and peak shape have a negative impact on sensitivity and can contaminate the system necessitating frequent cleaning. The LC-MS/MS analysis of paraquat and diquat presented here provides complete separation and good peak response for both target analytes in a fast, 7-minute gradient run without the use of troublesome ion pairing reagents.

Featured Application: Extractable Semivolatile Organic Compounds on Rxi-5Sil MS

Sample throughput for semivolatiles analysis can be significantly increased by employing split injection instead of splitless injection. Split injection allows more samples to be analyzed per shift because it utilizes a higher initial GC oven temperature and faster oven cycle time. Pairing a robust Rxi-5Sil MS column with split injection ensures fast, accurate results for analyzing semivolatiles under procedures such as Method 8270.

DiatoSorb-W Diatomaceous Earth: Great Chromatography Millions of Years in the Making

Virtually unlimited in supply—but only available from Restek—new DiatoSorb-W diatomaceous earth offers a reliable alternative for packed column users. After years of dealing with supply shortages and inconsistent product quality, analysts who depend on diatomaceous earth columns now have a reliable new source. Restek now uses DiatoSorb-W as the exclusive replacement to the diatomaceous earth that was previously used in our standard and Silcoport W GC packed columns lines. All DiatoSorb-W material undergoes rigorous quality testing to ensure high purity and dependable performance. DiatoSorb-W material is available in acid-washed (WAW), non-acid washed (WNAW), and high-performance (WHP) varieties.

Influencing Selectivity in LC-MS Peptides Analysis on the Raptor ARC-18 Column

Methods for LC-MS peptide analysis often use acidified mobile phases, which can alter retention and selectivity. Here, we demonstrate the effects of modifying acid type, acid concentration, temperature, and gradient slope using several test probes. A Raptor ARC-18 column was employed for this work because it is sterically protected making it extremely stable and resistant to acid damage at low pHs, which is an important characteristic when developing LC-MS methods for peptide analysis.

Simplified Methylmalonic Acid Analysis without Derivatization in Human Plasma by LC-MS/MS

Methylmalonic acid analysis is an important clinical test for diagnosing vitamin B12 deficiency as well as methylmalonic acidemia. Methods typically require extensive sample preparation, which involves significant time and expense. The LC-MS/MS method developed here offers a much simpler alternative, providing complete chromatographic resolution of isobaric analytes from the direct injection of a protein crash sample supernatant onto a Force C18 column.

LC-MS/MS Analysis of Urinary Free Cortisol and Cortisone without Matrix Interferences

In general, LC-MS/MS analysis of urinary free cortisol and cortisone can provide better specificity than immunoassay-based methods. However, it is critical that the analytical column has the proper selectivity for chromatographically separating cortisol from isobaric matrix components. In the method presented here, complete separation of the target analytes and matrix interferences was obtained in a 3-minute analysis on a Raptor Biphenyl column.
