ABSTRACT
The capability of ultra performance liquid chromatography coupled with time-of-flight mass spectrometry (UPLC/TOFMS) in the high-throughput quantitative analysis of a drug candidate in plasma has been investigated. Data obtained were compared with results from conventional analysis by high-performance liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometric detection on a triple quadrupole instrument (HPLC/MS/MS). The accuracies and precisions of the two approaches were comparable. The UPLC/TOFMS system displayed excellent robustness over the course of 276 injections of protein-precipitated plasma samples. With the instrumentation used, the limits of detection and quantification were approximately five-fold higher with UPLC/TOFMS than for HPLC/MS/MS. Nevertheless, the UPLC/TOFMS system proved adequate to quantify plasma concentrations of a drug molecule administered orally to rats at a pharmacologically relevant dose of 4 mg/kg. As well as providing quantitative data on the test compound, it was also possible to extract data for eight different metabolites, including several isomeric species (three +O and three +2O) from the UPLC/TOFMS data sets, using an analytical method with a 2.5-minute run time. Selectivity for the test compound and its metabolites was derived from the accurate mass capabilities of the TOF instrument, and no MS method development was required.
