In this paper, a novel method is described for automated determination of human insulin in biological fluids using principle of sequential injection on a molecularly imprinted solid-phase extraction (MISPE) cartridge as a sample clean-up technique combined with high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). The water-compatible molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) were prepared using methacrylic acid as a functional monomer, ethylene glycol dimethacrylate as a cross-linker, chloroform as a porogen and insulin as a template molecule. The imprinted polymers were then employed as the solid-phase extraction sorbent for on-line extraction of insulin from human plasma samples. To achieve the best condition, influential parameters on the extraction efficiency were thoroughly investigated. Rapid and simple analysis of the hormone was successfully accomplished through the good selectivity of the prepared sorbent coupled with HPLC. Limits of detection (LOD) and quantification (LOQ) of 0.2 ng mL−1, 0.7 ng mL−1, and 0.03 ng mL−1, 0.1 ng mL−1 were obtained in plasma and urine respectively. The obtained data exhibited the great recoveries for extraction of insulin from human plasma and pharmaceutical samples, higher than 87%.
