  • Simple and accurate candidate reference measurement procedure for total
           testosterone in human serum by one-step liquid-liquid extraction coupled
           with isotope dilution mass spectrometry
    • Abstract: Testosterone in human serum is commonly tested in clinical laboratories using immunoassay methods as well as liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) methods. To standardize and ensure the accuracy of the measurement results, reference procedures with higher metrological order are required. A simple measurement procedure based on one-step liquid-liquid extraction (LLE) and liquid chromatography-isotope dilution tandem mass spectrometry (LC-IDMS/MS) was developed for total testosterone in human serum. The procedure involved serum spiked with 13C3-testosterone, equilibration for 2 h, and extraction with an organic solvent. Testosterone certified reference material (CRM) was used as the calibration standard to ensure the traceability to the International System of Units (SI). Testosterone in serum CRMs from the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) and LGC were used to validate the accuracy of the newly developed method. The deviations of the obtained values from the NIST and LGC certified values ranged from −0.55% to 0.45%. Similarly, the coefficient of variations (CVs) of the replicate measurements were in the range of 0.55% and 0.78%, respectively. The relative expanded uncertainties were comparable with those of the certified materials. The newly developed LC-IDMS/MS procedure demonstrated adequate trueness and precision, and was simple to perform. The method can be used for value assignment of testosterone in external quality assessment (EQA) materials as well as certification of CRMs in the future. Graphical abstract

  • Neural network–based fingerprinting of monoclonal antibody aggregation
           using biolayer interferometry
    • Abstract: Aggregates are widely accepted to be a critical quality attribute (CQA) for biotherapeutics and believed to impact product immunogenicity. Monitoring of aggregates is typically performed using multiple orthogonal tools as any single tool is unable to offer comprehensive characterization of aggregate species over the entire size and morphology range that they can exist in. Researchers have attempted to categorize monoclonal antibody (mAb) aggregates into six classes based on their respective physicochemical properties. In this study, we have developed model based on artificial neural network (ANN) to predict the stress history of mAb contributing to the aggregate formation, based on binding sensogram profiles obtained with biolayer interferometry (BLI). It was observed that each class of mAb aggregates exhibited unique binding profiles that were characteristic fingerprint of that class. The proposed model uses principal components extracted from the mAb-Fcγ receptor binding sensogram (106 profiles from 9 stressed mAb samples) as inputs while the unique identification codes in the form of binary coded numbers are used as model outputs. The latter served as a fingerprint for each class of mAb aggregates generated by subjecting to specific stress conditions. The ANN was trained using Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm with Bayesian regularization, using 86 sensogram profiles, in the ratio of 80:10:10 for internal training, validation, and testing. The trained ANN accurately identified each single stress condition that the samples were subjected to based on their binding sensogram profiles. The model was also able to predict stress history for samples that had been subjected to more than one kind of stress with reasonable accuracy. The proposed approach therefore can be effectively employed for control of product quality in biopharmaceutical industry as well as for prediction of stress history of a sample.

  • Detection of systemic pesticide residues in tea products at trace level
           based on SERS and verified by GC–MS
    • Abstract: Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) has the potential to detect pesticide residues in agricultural products. However, some systemic pesticides, such as chlorpyrifos, can enter the plant tissue, and not just stay on the surface. Consequently, many SERS studies halted at practical application because of its complexity. In this work, SERS technology was used to detect chlorpyrifos residues in tea products at the semiquantitative level. A simple pretreatment method effectively avoided interference of other fluorescent substances, and all major peaks could be distinguished on the basis of a novel substrate. A principal component analysis algorithm was applied to form a regression model, and a nanogram detection limit was obtained. Furthermore, chlorpyrifos residues in the same tea products were also measured by gas chromatography–mass spectrometry, and the results show a small range of errors. From the comparative study of the two detection methods, the results suggest the great promise of SERS technology for rapid inspection of agricultural products.

  • Evaluation of different ionic liquid stationary phases for the analysis of
           carbohydrates by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry
    • Abstract: Five commercial ionic liquid (IL) columns have been evaluated for the first time for the gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis of low molecular weight carbohydrate (LMWC) standards (mono-, di-, and trisaccharides, inositols, and iminosugars). A previous derivatization step was necessary to convert the LMWCs into their volatile and stable derivatives. Compared with conventional GC stationary phases, such as HP-1 and Supelcowax® 10, IL columns have shown a different selectivity in the separation of target compounds. Among the IL columns, only SLB™-IL82 allowed the elution of all the LMWCs studied. Its performance in terms of peak width and asymmetry, evaluated under different oven temperature conditions, was shown to be dependent on the carbohydrate class considered. As an example of application, a SLB™-IL82 column was successfully used to separate the complex mixtures of LMWCs in hyacinth and mulberry extracts.

  • Online mass spectrometry of CE (SDS)-separated proteins by two-dimensional
           capillary electrophoresis
    • Abstract: Sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) is the fundamental technique for protein separation by size. Applying this technology in capillary format, gaining high separation efficiency in a more automated way, is a key technology for size separation of proteins in the biopharmaceutical industry. However, unequivocal identification by online mass spectrometry (MS) is impossible so far, due to strong interference in the electrospray process by SDS and other components of the SDS-MW separation gel buffer. Here, a heart-cut two-dimensional electrophoretic separation system applying an electrically isolated valve with an internal loop of 20 nL is presented. The peak of interest in the CE (SDS) separation is transferred to the CZE-MS, where electrospray-interfering substances of the SDS-MW gel are separated prior to online electrospray ionization mass spectrometry. An online SDS removal strategy for decomplexing the protein-SDS complex is implemented in the second dimension, consisting of the co-injection of organic solvent and cationic surfactant. This online CE (SDS)-CZE-MS system allows MS characterization of proteoforms separated in generic CE (SDS), gaining additional separation in the CZE and detailed MS information. In general, the system can be applied to all kinds of proteins separated by CE (SDS). Here, we present results of the CE (SDS)-CZE-MS system on the analysis of several biopharmaceutically relevant antibody impurities and fragments. Additionally, the versatile application spectrum of the system is demonstrated by the analysis of extracted proteins from soybean flour. The online hyphenation of CE (SDS) resolving power and MS identification capabilities will be a powerful tool for protein and mAb characterization. Graphical abstract Two-dimensional capillary electrophoresis system hyphenated with mass spectrometry for the characterization of CE (SDS)-separated proteins. As first dimension, a generic and high MS-interfering CE (SDS) separation is performed for size separation. After heart-cut transfer of the unknown CE (SDS) protein peak, via a four-port nanoliter valve to a volatile electrolyte system as second dimension, interference-free mass spectrometric data of separated mAb fragments and soybean proteins are obtained.

  • Speciation analysis of arsenic in samples containing high concentrations
           of chloride by LC-HG-AFS
    • Abstract: Chloride widely exists in the environment and will cause serious interference for arsenic speciation analysis. The determination of four arsenic species including arsenite (As(III)), arsenate (As(V)), monomethylarsenate (MMA), and dimethylarsonate (DMA) in samples containing high concentrations of Cl− was carried out in this work by coupling of liquid chromatography (LC) with hydride generation atomic fluorescence spectrometry (HG-AFS). The interference of Cl− was successfully eliminated by coupling two anion-exchange chromatographic columns in series and eluting with 35.0 mmol L−1 (NH4)2HPO4 (pH = 6.00). A novel pre-treatment system was subsequently developed to realize on-line column switch and pre-reduction of As(V). The analysis time was shortened by an isocratic elution but programmed flow rate method, and the sensitivity of As(V) was also enhanced by the introduction of pre-reduction using the developed system. The proposed method can resist at least 10 g L−1 Cl− without any pre-treatment operations. Since LC-HG-AFS is low-cost and can be afforded or self-assembled by most labs, the developed method can be adopted as a routine analysis method for arsenic species in chloride-bearing samples, such as urine and seawater.

  • LC-MS/MS method for the determination of organophosphorus pesticides and
           their metabolites in salmon and zebrafish fed with plant-based feed
    • Abstract: The composition of Atlantic salmon feed has changed considerably over the last two decades from being marine-based (fishmeal and fish oil) to mainly containing plant ingredients. Consequently, concern related to traditional persistent contaminants typically associated with fish-based feed has been replaced by other potential contaminants not previously associated with salmon farming. This is the case for many pesticides, which are used worldwide to increase food production, and may be present in plant ingredients. Earlier studies have identified two organophosphorus pesticides, chlorpyrifos-methyl and pirimiphos-methyl, in plant ingredients used for aquafeed production. In the present study, we developed a reliable and sensitive analytical method, based on liquid chromatography coupled to tandem mass spectrometry, for the determination of these pesticides and their main metabolites in warm water (zebrafish) and cold water (Atlantic salmon) species, where possible differences in metabolites could be expected. The method was tested in whole zebrafish and in different salmon tissues, such as muscle, bile, kidney, fat, and liver. The final objective of this work was to assess kinetics of chlorpyrifos-methyl and pirimiphos-methyl and their main metabolites in fish tissue, in order to fill the knowledge gaps on these metabolites in fish tissues when fed over prolonged time.

  • Multivariate data analysis of capacitance frequency scanning for online
           monitoring of viable cell concentrations in small-scale bioreactors
    • Abstract: Viable cell concentration (VCC) is one of the most important process attributes during mammalian cell cultivations. Current state-of-the-art measurements of VCC comprise offline methods which do not allow for continuous process data. According to the FDA’s process analytical technology initiative, process monitoring and control should be applied to gain process understanding and to ensure high product quality. In this work, the use of an inline capacitance probe to monitor online VCCs of a mammalian CHO cell culture process in small-scale bioreactors (250 mL) was investigated. Capacitance sensors using single frequency are increasingly common for biomass monitoring. However, the single-frequency signal corresponds to the cell polarization that represents the viable cell volume. Therefore single-frequency measurements are dependent on cell diameter changes. Measuring the capacitance across various frequencies (frequency scanning) can provide information about the VCC and cope with changing cell diameter. Applying multivariate data analysis on the frequency scanning data successfully enabled direct online monitoring of VCCs in this study. The multivariate model was trained with data from 5 standard cultivations. The model provided a prediction of VCCs with relative errors from 5.5 to 11%, which is a good agreement with the acceptance criterion based on the offline reference method accuracy (approximately 10% relative error) and strongly improved compared with single-frequency results (16 to 23% relative error). Furthermore, robustness trials were conducted to demonstrate the model’s predictive ability under challenging conditions. The process deviations in regard to dilution steps and feed variations were detected immediately in the online prediction of the VCC with relative errors between 6.7 and 13.2%. Thus in summary, the presented method on capacitance frequency scanning demonstrates its suitability for process monitoring and control that can save batches, time, and cost. Graphical abstract

  • Simultaneous determination of proteins in microstructured optical fibers
           supported by chemometric tools
    • Abstract: A new perspective on the relevant problem—creating simple, rapid, and efficient protein sensors based on microstructured optical fibers using a simple homogeneous analysis format—was proposed. Commercially available long-period grating hollow core microstructured optical fibers (LPG HCMOF) were used to determine bovine serum albumin (BSA) and albumin from chicken eggs (OVA) in binary mixtures as well as immunoglobulin G (IgG) in the presence of BSA and OVA. LPG HCMOF transmission spectra allowed the detection of both BSA and OVA up to 10 mg/mL with LOD as low as 0.1 and 0.8 μg/mL, respectively. Partial least squares regression (PLS) was utilized for modeling of LPG HCMOF spectral data and quantitative analysis of BSA, OVA, total protein, and IgG in binary and ternary mixtures. Rather high coefficients of determination (R2) and low root mean square error for the calibration (RMSEC) (15%) and prediction (RMSEP) (20%) were obtained for all PLS models. The proposed approach was tested in the analysis of BSA in spiked horse blood hemolyzed (HBH). The results demonstrated the functionality of the proposed approach and offered the opportunity for the creation of a wide range of sensors for protein determination in complex mixtures.

  • Visual and spectrophotometric detection of metformin based on the
           host-guest molecular recognition of cucurbit[6]uril-modified silver
    • Abstract: A simple, sensitive, and naked-eye assay of metformin (MET), based on the host–guest molecular recognition of cucurbit[6]uril (CB[6])-modified silver nanoparticles, has been developed for the first time. The molecular recognition between CB[6] and MET is initially demonstrated and the related recognition mechanism is further discussed. CB[6]-modified AgNPs were first synthesized and then characterized by UV–vis spectroscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, and transmission electron microscopy. The solution behavior of CB[6] in the presence of AgNO3 was also studied, and the correlative result revealed that AgNPs could combine with the carbonyl portals of CB[6]. On the basis of the molecular recognition of CB[6] and the surface plasmon resonance effect of AgNPs, CB[6]-modified AgNPs were used as visual probes to detect MET. In CB[6]-modified AgNP solution, the aggregation of CB[6]-modified AgNPs induced by MET triggered changes of color and the UV–vis absorption spectrum, which laid the foundation for the visual identification and spectrophotometric determination of MET. Under the optimized detection conditions, the UV–vis spectral assay had a good linear relationship in the range from 3 to 750 μM, and the limit of detection was 1 μM. According to the color changes, the minimum concentration recognized by the naked eye was about 75 μM. Furthermore, this assay has high selectivity for coexisting interferents and was also applied to MET detection in human urine samples. This strategy provides a novel and facile tool for highly selective and sensitive detection of MET. Graphical abstract

  • Synthesis and characterization of deep eutectic solvents (five hydrophilic
           and three hydrophobic), and hydrophobic application for microextraction of
           environmental water samples
    • Abstract: Hydrophilic and hydrophobic deep eutectic solvents (DESs) as “green” solvents were applied in this study for the microextraction of environmental samples. A series of DESs (five hydrophilic and three hydrophobic) were synthesized and characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. Physicochemical property parameters of eight DESs including water solubility, density, conductivity, and freezing point were assessed. Compared with the performance of five hydrophilic DESs in water phase, the three hydrophobic DESs were more suitable for application in dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction for the determination of sulfonamides in water sample. In dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction process, analytical parameters including type and volume of extraction solvent, extraction time, and pH of water sample were investigated. Under optimum conditions, 60 μL of hydrophobic DESs was used for extraction for 2 min in pH = 7.0 sample. The linear ranges were 0.05–5.0 μg/mL for the four sulfonamides with the correlation coefficients in the range of 0.9991–0.9999. The limits of detection were in the range of 0.0005–0.0009 μg/mL and the limits of quantification were in the range of 0.0019–0.0033 μg/mL. The recoveries of the analytes of the proposed method for the spiked samples were 80.17–93.5%, with the relative standard deviation less than 6.31%. The results indicated that three hydrophobic DESs showed commendable performance for extraction of sulfonamides, and hydrophobic DES-based microextraction method was successfully applied for monitoring sulfonamides in water samples.

  • A simple and efficient method for potential point-of-care diagnosis of
           human papillomavirus genotypes: combination of isothermal recombinase
           polymerase amplification with lateral flow dipstick and reverse dot blot
    • Abstract: Cervical cancer is the second most common cancer in the world’s woman population with a high incidence in developing countries where diagnostic conditions for the cancer are poor. The main culprit causing the cancer is the human papillomavirus (HPV). HPV is divided into three major groups, i.e., high-risk (HR) group, probable high-risk (pHR) group, and low-risk (LR) group according to their potential of causing cervical cancer. Therefore, developing a sensitive, reliable, and cost-effective point-of-care diagnostic method for the virus genotypes in developing countries even worldwide is of high importance for the cancer prevention and control strategies. Here we present a combined method of isothermal recombinase polymerase amplification (RPA), lateral flow dipstick (LFD), and reverse dot blot (RDB), in quick point-of-care identification of HPV genotypes. The combined method is highly specific to HPV when the conserved L1 genes are used as targeted genes for amplification. The method can be used in identification of HPV genotypes at point-of-care within 1 h with a sensitivity of low to 100 fg of the virus genomic DNA. We have demonstrated that it is an excellent diagnostic point-of-care assay in monitoring the disease without time-consuming and expensive procedures and devices.

  • Intensive optimization and evaluation of global DNA methylation
           quantification using LC-MS/MS
    • Abstract: DNA methylation is a typical epigenetic phenomenon. Numerous methods for detecting global DNA methylation levels have been developed, among which LC-MS/MS has emerged as an excellent method from the viewpoint of sensitivity, reproducibility, and cost. However, LC-MS/MS methods have limitations due to a lack of the stability and the standardization required for a laboratory assay. The present study aimed to establish a robust assay that guarantees highly accurate measurements of global DNA methylation levels. There are at least three facets of the developed method. The first is discovery of the solvent conditions to minimize sodium adducts. The second is improvement of separation of nucleosides by LC using the columns that had not been used in previous similar studies. The third is success in reduction of the uncertainty of the measurement results, which was achieved by the calibration using the ratio of mdC but not the absolute amount in the presence of internal standards. These facets represent the advantage over methods reported previously. Our developed method enables quantification of DNA methylation with a short time length (8 min) for one analysis as well as with the high reproducibility of measurements that is represented by the inter-day CV% being less than 5%. In addition, data obtained from measuring global DNA methylation levels in cultured cell lines, with or without pharmacological demethylation, support its use for biomedical research. This assay is expected to allow us to conduct initial screening of epigenetic alterations or aberration in a variety of cells.

  • An external quality assurance trial to assess mass spectrometry protein
           testing facilities for identifying multiple human peptides
    • Abstract: The application of proteomic liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (LC-MS) for identifying proteins and peptides associated with human disease is rapidly growing in clinical diagnostics. However, the ability to accurately and consistently detect disease-associated peptides remains clinically uncertain. Variability in diagnostic testing occurs in part due to the absence of appropriate reference testing materials and standardised clinical guidelines for proteomic testing. In addition, multiple proteomic testing pipelines have not been fully assessed through external quality assurance (EQA). This trial was therefore devised to evaluate the performance of a small number of mass spectrometry (MS) testing facilities to (i) evaluate the EQA material for potential usage in a proteomic quality assurance program, and to (ii) identify key problem areas associated with human peptide testing. Five laboratories were sent six peptide reference testing samples formulated to contain a total of 35 peptides in differing ratios of light (natural) to heavy (labelled) peptides. Proficiency assessment of laboratory data used a modified approach to similarity and dissimilarity testing that was based on Bray-Curtis and Sorensen indices. Proficiency EQA concordant consensus values could not be derived from the assessed data since none of the laboratories correctly identified all reference testing peptides in all samples. However, the produced data may be reflective of specific inter-laboratory differences for detecting multiple peptides since no two testing pipelines used were the same for any laboratory. In addition, laboratory feedback indicated that peptide filtering of the reference material was a common key problem area prior to analysis. These data highlight the importance of an EQA programme for identifying underlying testing issues so that improvements can be made and confidence for clinical diagnostic analysis can be attained.
