Dynamic hollow-fibre liquid phase microextraction for human plasma samples automated by sequential injection analysis
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
This paper presents an easily handled, hollow-fibre liquid phase microextraction (HF-LPME) sample clean-up method, automated by the use of a programmable sequential injection analysis (SIA) system. Use of a SIA system significantly reduces the need for manual sample handling. This new type of clean-up system was assessed and compared with manual HF-LPME for the extraction of acidic compounds (dinitrophenols) from human plasma, in terms of human intervention requirements, efficiency, repeatability and carry-over. Its application to a SIA system for basic compounds (b-blockers) is also presented. The sample aliquots collected off-line from the SIA system were subsequently subjected to separation with LC and the various analytes were detected with ESI-MS.
Extraction efficiency values between 28 and 56% (RSD 5-10%, n = 7) were achieved for the dinitrophenol compounds after an extraction cycle of 58 min including a 30 min washing step. According to the MS analysis the SIA/HF-LPME method yielded clean chromatograms with no detectable interfering peaks. Ion suppression in positive ESI-MS was between 4 and 21% when tested on extracts with b-blockers.
