Alternate Sample Preparation Approaches for Your Mass Spectrometry Clinical Research Assays

William Clarke, PhD, MBA, DABCC

The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
Tues., Feb. 23     2:003:00 p.m.   Mojave Room

The first part of this session will focus on the research of cell disintegrated blood (CDB) as a matrix for the analysis of immunosuppressant drugs. Opportunities, challenges, and limitations of CDB will be explored.

The second part of this session will focus on alternate sample preparation approaches for the analysis of dried urine spots. Research analysis of field samples from HIV prevention trials compared to research analysis of liquid urine will be discussed, as well as other potential opportunities and limitations of the methodology.

Which Chromatography and Mass Analyzer is Right for Your Clinical Research Application?

Lewis Couchman, Senior Clinical Scientist and Development Lead
Viapath Analytics, King's College Hospital, London
Wed., Feb. 24     8:009:00 a.m. (Breakfast)     Mojave Room

Mass spectrometry has wide applicability in clinical research, especially when combined with modern chromatography and sample preparation. However, clinical research method development should remain application-centred, and ideally use a range of approaches to design a ‘fit-for-purpose’ methodology.

We will describe the applicability of turbulent flow chromatography, high-resolution, accurate mass (HRAM) LC-MS, and rapid quantitative analysis using triple quad mass analysers. The merits of each will be discussed using examples from clinical research methods.
