Applications:


Separation of Serotonin, Dopamine, and Related Compounds
Catecholamines are chemical compounds derived from the amino acid tyrosine containing catechol and amine groups. Some of them are biogenic amines. Retention of compounds of the catecholamine pathway is achieved on Obelisc N column. All polar compounds are well retained by combination of HILIC and ion-exchange mechanisms. Obelisc N columns produce very good peak shapes for all analytes. The method is very sensitive to amount of ACN, buffer and buffer pH. The retention time changes with variation of the main parameters. This method can be used for quantitation of biogenic amines and related compounds (homovanillic acid, dihydroxyphenyl acetic acid, serotonin, dopamine, epinephrine, hydroxytryptophan, epinephrine and DOPA) in urine, blood and other biological fluids. Further optimization of this HPLC method can be used during screening and validation. Amines and acids can be analyzed in the same run and retained by a combination of polar organic mode, cation-exchange and anion-exchange modes. Various buffers within specified pH can be employed (ammonium formate, ammonium acetate, sodium phosphate, etc.).

Homovanillic Acid

HPLC Separation of DOPAC, Homovanillic Acid and Dopamine on the Primesep 100 Column
  Application Notes: Neurotransmitters DOPAC, homovanillic acid and dopamine were separated by mixed-mode chromatography on Primesep 100 and Primesep 200 HPLC columns. The method can be used for quantification of neurotransmitters with LC/MS compatible conditions. The compounds are retained by combination of reversed-phase, ion-exchange or ion-exclusion mechanisms. The retention time and selectivity of separation can be adjusted by variation of amount of acetonitrile, buffer pH and buffer concentration.   Application Columns: Primesep 100, Primesep 200   Application compounds: Dopac, Homovanillic Acid, Dopamine Detection technique: UV, LC/MS, ELSD/CAD
