The transfer of analytical methods from a sending laboratory to a receiving one requires to guarantee that this last laboratory will obtain accurate results. Undeniably method transfer is the ultimate step before routine implementation of the method at the receiving site. The conventional statistical approaches generally used in this domain which analyze separately the trueness and precision characteristics of the receiver do not achieve this. Therefore, this paper aims first at demonstrating the applicability of two recent statistical approaches using total error-based criterion and taking into account the uncertainty of the true value estimate of the sending laboratory, to the transfer of bioanalytical methods. To achieve this, they were successfully applied to the transfer of two fully automated liquid chromatographic method coupled on-line to solid-phase extraction. The first one was dedicated to the determination of three catecholamines in human urine using electrochemical detection, and the second one to the quantitation of N-methyl-laudanosine in plasma using fluorescence detection. Secondly, a risk-based evaluation is made in order to understand why classical statistical approaches are not sufficient to provide the guarantees that the analytical method will give most of the time accurate results during its routine use. Finally, some recommendations for the transfer studies are proposed. [less ▲]

Nonaqueous capillary electrophoresis (NACE) was successfully applied to the enantiomeric purity determination of R-flurbiprofen using 6-monodeoxy-6-mono(2-hydroxy)propylamino-beta-cyclodextrin (IPA-beta-CD) as chiral selector. The nonaqueous BGE was made up of 20 mM IPA-beta-CD, 20 mM ammonium camphorsulfortate and 40 mM ammonium acetate in methanol. Flufenamic acid was selected as internal standard. The CE method was carefully optimized in order to prevent the adsorption of the cationic CD onto the capillary wall, and therefore, to avoid loss of peak efficiency and enantioresolution. To achieve this goal, the addition of ammonium camphorsulfonate was found to be necessary. In the selected conditions, the determination of 0.1% of S-flurbiprofen in R-flurbiprofen could be performed using the method of standard additions. The NACE method was then fully validated by applying a novel strategy using accuracy profiles. (c) 2008 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

The set-up of an on-line method for coupling nonaqueous electrokinetic chromatography (NAEKC) and electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) is presented. It allows the use of the single-isomer derivative anionic cyclodextrins heptakis(2,3-di-O-methyl-6-O-sulfo)-beta-cyclodextrin (HDMS-beta-CD) and heptakis(2.3-di-O-acetyl-6-O-sulfo)-beta-cyclodextrin (HDAS-beta-CD) for chiral and achiral separations of positively charged analytes. The effect of the cyclodextrins (CDs) on the MS signal intensities of model compounds was studied. When a voltage is applied over the CE capillary, the overall mobility of the CDs is towards the inlet vial preventing CDs from entering the ion source. However, the sodium counter ions of the CDs still enter the ion source and appeared to cause ionization suppression. Nevertheless, significant analyte signals could still be detected with detection limits in the sub-mu g/ml. System parameters such as sheath liquid composition and flow rate, nebulizing gas pressure, capillary position in the sprayer and the drying gas flow and temperature were studied and optimized. The selection of a relatively low nebulizing gas pressure appeared to be important to achieve optimum sensitivity. The chiral selectivity of the NAEKC-ESI-MS system could be improved by addition of camphorsulfonate to the background electrolyte. Using mixtures of drugs and drug-related compounds, the NAEKC-ESI-MS system is shown to offer potential for (chiral) drug profiling. (c) 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

5-S-cysteinyldopa is a well-known pigment intermediate and analysis of its plasma concentration is interesting for the early diagnosis, as well as for evaluation of treatment and follow-up of malignant melanoma. A determination method of 5-SCD in human plasma was developed using solid phase extraction (SPE) on disposable cartridges and liquid chromatography electrospray mass spectrometry (LC-ESI-MS-MS). Compound's sensitivity to light and oxidation requires the addition of anti-oxidative agents (AO), to work in acidic media at 4 degrees C and to avoid light exposure of samples since blood collection. Different solid phases involving covalent binding to phenylboronic groups or dual retention mechanisms were evaluated and extraction cartridges containing both hydrophobic and strong cation exchange functionalities were finally selected. The LC separation of 5-SCD from endogenous catecholamines was achieved by gradient elution on a C18 stationary phase. 5-SCD was detected by multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) performed on ES(+) generated ions. Finally, the method was prevalidated in the lower ng/ml range. Good results with respect to accuracy, trueness and precision were obtained. [less ▲]

A robustness test of a capillary electrophoresis method for the chiral separation of timolol in nonaqueous acidified media was performed. A two-level Plackett-Burman design was applied in which one qualitative and six quantitative factors were examined. Resolution, migration times and relative migration times to pyridoxine (selected as internal standard) were examined as qualitative responses to evaluate electrophoretic performance. A quantitative response, the content of R-timolol in S-timolol maleate sample, was also considered. Even though some significant factor effects were observed on the qualitative responses, it was still possible to quantify the R-timolol in the S-timolol maleate samples properly. The quantitative response was not significantly affected by the selected factors, demonstrating the robustness of the procedure. However, the use of different HDMS-beta-CD batches seemed to affect both types of responses necessitating to introduce a warning in the procedure. Since the experiments of the Plackett-Burman design can be assimilated to laboratories in an interlaboratory study, uncertainty can be evaluated using the robustness test data. The robustness test was set-up in such a way that the required variances could be estimated. [less ▲]

A novel, multidimensional on-line SPE-LC method with electrochemical detection is described for the fully automated and direct analysis of the catecholamines norepinephrine, epinephrine and dopamine in urine. The integrated extractive clean-up of the raw biofluid is based on a SPE-column packed with restricted access material (RAM) which is modified with the affinity ligand nitrophenylboronic acid. The method was fully validated according to a recent approach based on an accuracy profile. The acceptance limits were set at +/- 15% of the nominal concentration values. The method was found accurate over a concentration range from 15 to 500 mu g/l for norepinephrine, from 5 to 500 mu g/l for epinephrine and from 50 to 500 mu g/l for dopamine. The relative risk for the use of the validated method in routine analysis was also assessed based on this validation strategy. It was found that at most 3.5% of future sample measurements will fall outside the acceptance limits. This demonstrates the high reliability of the analytical method described. Moreover, the measurements uncertainties were deduced from the validation experiments without any additional effort. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

Two new statistical approaches to assess the validity of the transfer of a LC-UV method for the determination of fenofibrate and fenofibric acid were investigated and compared to the conventional approaches generally used in this domain. These new approaches, namely the Tolerance Interval and the Risk approaches, are based on the simultaneous evaluation of the systematic (or trueness) and random (or precision) errors of the transfer into a single criterion called total error (or accuracy). The results of the transfer showed that only the total error based approaches fulfilled the objective of an analytical method transfer, i.e. to give guarantees that each future measurement made by the receiving laboratory will be close enough to the true value of the analyte in the sample. Furthermore the Risk approach was the most powerful one and allowed the estimation of the risk to have future measurements out of specification in the receiving laboratory, therefore being a risk management tool.
