Abstract :
Analytical methods for the determination of melagatran (H 319/68) in biological samples by liquid chromatography (LC)–positive electrospray ionization mass spectrometry using multiple reaction monitoring are described. Melagatran in plasma was isolated by solid-phase extraction on octylsilica, either in separate extraction tubes or in 96-well plates. Absolute recovery of melagatran from plasma was >92%. Melagatran and the internal standard, H 319/68 D2 13C2, were separated from other sample components by LC utilizing a C18 stationary phase and a mobile phase comprising 35% acetonitrile and 0.08% formic acid in 0.0013 mol/l ammonium acetate solution. After dilution, urine was injected directly onto the LC column and subjected to gradient LC. The relative standard deviation was 1–5% for concentrations above the limit of quantification, which was estimated for plasma at 10 or 25 nmol/l for sample volumes of 500 or 200 μl, respectively, and 100 nmol/l for urine.
