Abstract: Biological samples contain proteins and phospholipids that can interfere with LC-MS/MS analysis and increase the frequency of instrument maintenance. Here we used Resprep PLR SPE to simultaneously remove proteins and phospholipids from plasma in one high-efficiency sample preparation process. Concurrent phospholipid removal eliminated signal suppression and excellent recoveries were obtained for a wide range of chemical classes without the need for additional method development.
