NotesSample Preparation Method:
1. Centrifuge female human urine for 5 min at 4,500 rpm, 10 °C.
2. Aliquot 380 µL supernatant. Add 20 µL each of internal standard solution (1 µg/mL in methanol).
3. Load 200 μL of sample on to ISOLUTE SLE+ 200 µL supported liquid extraction plate (part# 820-0200-P01).
4. Apply a pulse of vacuum to initiate flow.
5. Wait 5 min for sample to completely absorb.
6. Extract samples with 1 mL of MTBE. Allow solvent to flow for 5 min under gravity. Apply vacuum for 10-30 sec to complete elution.
7. Evaporate extracts to dryness under a stream of nitrogen.
8. Reconstitute in 200 µL mobile phase A prior to analysis.
9. Vortex to mix.
