Extraction of Total Cortisol from Human Plasma Using Novum SLE & Kinetex Biphenyl

Sample Preparation Details

Part Number :8E-S138-5GA
Description :Novum SLE, MAX 96-Well Plate, Ea
Load :Load 200.00 µL Sample diluted in 200
Elution 1 :900 mL Methylene Chloride at µL mL/min
Elution 2 :900 mL Methylene Chloride at µL mL/min
Evaporate: :Evaporate to dryness
Reconstitute :200 µL 10mM ammonium acetate in water:methanol(50:50)
Notes :Extraction Procedure Sample pre-treatment: Dilute 200 uL of human plasma with 200 ul of 50 mM sodium phosphate dibasic heptahydrate, pH unadjusted. Vortex briefly (3-5 sec). Sample loading: Load the sample from pretreatment step abive onto the Novum plate and apply a short and gentle pulse of vacuum (~ 5" of Hg for 5-10 sec) or until the sample has completely entered the media. Wait for 5 minutes. Elution: Dispense 900 uL of dichloromethane onto the SLE media and allow the solvent to elute by gravity (~ 5 min elution time) and collect the eluant. Repeat with another 900 uL of dichloromethane and collect the eluant. Apply vacuum at 5" of Hg for 20-30 secs to complete the extraction. NOTE: Prolonged application of vacuum will result in elution of plasma out of the SLE media and into the final extracted solvent. Dry down: Evaporate the final extract to complete dryness under slow stream of N2 at 40°C Reconstitute the dry residue in 200 uL of initial mobile phase fortified with cortisol-D4.
