BACKGROUND: Several studies have shown that cherries, especially sour cultivars, contain substantial amounts of phenolic compounds. OBJECTIVE: This study aims to (i) analyze the total phenolic compound (TPC) content and the antioxidant capacity (AC) of a large range of cultivars using the same methodology in one laboratory, and (ii) determine the possible relationship between agronomic characteristics and AC. METHODS: A total of 245 samples including sweet, sour and hybrid cultivars from our collections were harvested at their optimum maturity and characterized according to their TPC, DPPH and ORAC values. RESULTS: The TPC content and DPPH and ORAC values varied greatly among the cherries, with the sour cultivars presenting higher levels than the sweet ones. The PCA plot showed a slight grouping by species and confirmed the high TPC content level in sour cultivars. The bi-colored cultivars had lower TPC and antioxidant capacity (AC) values than dark-colored ones, indicating that coloration could give an indication of the AC of fruits. No significant relationship between the agronomic and chemical properties was highlighted. CONCLUSIONS: Cherry fruits, especially from sour cultivars, represent an important source of bioactive compounds and could attract new interest as a ‘functional food’. [less ▲]

A new sample preparation method for the water content determination of mulin by volumetric Karl Fischer (KF) titration was developed and compared to the usual method of introducing the sample directly in the methanol-based working medium, modified or not by formamide (1:3, v/v) in order to increase sample solubility. In the proposed method, inulins were externally prepared by dissolving them in pure formamide (2.5:7.5, w/w). The time of analysis of the liquid/liquid reaction of the new method between the dissolved sample and the reaction medium is about 1-2 min, while the usual KF method is stopped after the 10 min delay time. The developed method permits the determination of water included in the crystals of the sample, confirmed by analysing both crystalline and amorphous mulin samples. Another advantage of this new method is its applicability for the water content determination of other polysaccharides that are not readily soluble in the working medium. Moreover. water content determination can be done by any type of volumetric KF titrator, as this proposed technique is not dependent on any additional tools such as a built-in homogeniser or a heatable titration beaker.

The correct interpretation of a measurement result requires knowledge about its uncertainty. Depending on the conditions under which the analyst is operating, different operational definitions of uncertainty have been proposed. They include: within-laboratory uncertainty, reproducibility uncertainty, bias-included uncertainty and absolute uncertainty. Here we consider the evaluation of the reproducibility uncertainty derived from the results obtained in an inter-laboratory experiment. Nine laboratories participated in an inter-laboratory study for the analysis of phenoxymethylpenicillin. The analyses consisted of a Karl–Fischer water determination, an acid–base titration to assay phenoxymethylpenicillin and a liquid chromatography (LC) method to determine 4-hydroxyphenoxymethylpenicillin and other impurities. The experimental set-up allowed to obtain for each determination s2 r and s2L as estimates of the repeatability variance (σ2r ) and the between-laboratory variance (σ2L), respectively. The reproducibility uncertainties for the different assays were then derived from these estimates. [less ▲]

Background: The aim of this work was to develop and validate a method for the determination of metanephrine (M), normetanephrine (NM) and methoxymetanephrine (METHO) in urine by liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LCMS-MS) on the Triple Quad TQ 5500 from AB SCIEX. In fact, the determination of M and NM concentrations is used in clinical diagnosis of pheochromocytoma, a rare but potentially fatal tumor arising primarily from the chromaffin cells of the adrenal medulla. Methods: The samples were made of 24 hours acidified urines after centrifugation. Sample preparation was performed by hydrolysing and purifying by extraction column. After that, labeled M, NM and METHO were added as internal standard. Samples were analysed by liquid chromatography-electrospray tandem mass spectrometry. We determined the repeatability, reproducibility, accuracy profile and recovery on pooling urines samples from 9 volunteers analysed in triple run. Results: The results of the precision evaluation are shown in table. The repeatability did not exceed 8.4 % for M, 6.8% for NM and 10.8% for METHO. The concentration range was 71-781 µg/24h, 71-853 µg/24h and 20-854µg/24h for the M, NM and METHO respectively. The total precision did not exceed 12.5%, 11.8% and 8.8% for M, NM and METHO. The limit of quantification (LOQ) were 33.77µg/24h, 14.49µg/24H and 19.81 µg/24H for M, NM and METHO respectively. The accuracy varied from 99.69 to 100.2% for a range of 71 to 781 µg/24h, from 93.32 to 100.2% for a range of 71-853 µg/24h and from 99.85 to 100.6% for the range 20-854µg/24h for M, NM and METHO respectively. The recovery were 99.96% (95% CI for the mean: 96.5-103.4), 99.75% (96.5-102.9) and 100.08 (95.97-104.2) for the M, NM and METHO respectively. Conclusions: We have successfully developed and validated an LCMS-MS method to determine urinary M, NM and METHO on the TQ 5500 from AB SCIEX. It represents a convincing alternative to the HPLC method for a faster and reliable measurement of urinary M, NM and METHO. [less ▲]

A conventional liquid-liquid extraction (LLE) procedure with high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) has been developed for the determination of verapamil and its main metabolite, norverapamil, in plasma. After addition of the internal standard, plasma samples were basified with phosphate buffer (pH 9.0) and extracted with a mixture of cyclohexane-dichloromethane. After centrifugation, the organic layer was separated and the analytes were extracted back into a 0.1 N sulphuric acid solution containing 2-aminoheptane. An aliquot of this aqueous phase was then injected directly onto the HPLC column. This LLE procedure has been compared with an automated liquid-solid extraction (LSE) method that has been developed in parallel. Good linearity was obtained using both extraction methods. The absolute recoveries for the two analytes were ca 95% with the automated LSE procedure and slightly lower (ca 84%) for the LLE method. The automated method gives better results with respect to detectability and precision, but the LLE procedure is simpler to develop, requires much less expensive equipment, and remains a useful alternative when the number of samples to be analysed is limited.
