Summary of "Simultaneous analysis of antibiotics in biological samples by ultra high performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry."

A rapid and reliable multiclass method was developed for the simultaneous analysis of 21 antibiotics (beta-lactams, aminoglycosides, penicillins, cephalosporins, carbapenems or quinolones) in urine, serum, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and bronchial aspirations by ultra-high performance liquid chromatography coupled to tandem mass spectrometry (UHPLC-MS/MS). Prior to chromatographic determination, the analytes were extracted from human biological fluids by simple sample treatments, which imply dilution, liquefaction, or protein precipitation. Several chromatographic conditions were optimized in order to obtain a fast separation (<6min for each chromatographic run). MS/MS conditions were evaluated in order to increase selectivity and sensitivity and all compounds were detected in electrospray (ESI) positive ion mode, except clavulanic acid and sulbactam, which were monitored in negative ion mode. The developed method was validated in terms of linearity, selectivity, limits of detection (LODs) and quantification (LOQs), trueness, repeatability and interday precision. The LOQs ranged from 0.01 to 1.00mg/L for urine, serum and CSF. In case of bronchial aspirations, the LOQs were between 0.02 and 0.67mg/kg. In all matrices the recovery results were in the range 70-120% and interday precision was lower than 25%. Finally, the optimized method was applied to the analysis of biological samples from 10 patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) of a hospital located in Almeria (Spain). Several antibiotics (e.g., amoxicillin, tobramycin, levofloxacin, or linezolid) were found in the studied samples, observing that the highest concentrations were obtained in urine samples.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The simultaneous analysis, on a microchip, of multiple samples or targets arranged in an array format.

The simultaneous analysis of multiple samples of TISSUES or CELLS from BIOPSY or in vitro culture that have been arranged in an array format on slides or microchips.

Comprehensive, methodical analysis of complex biological systems by monitoring responses to perturbations of biological processes. Large scale, computerized collection and analysis of the data are used to develop and test models of biological systems.

A set of techniques used when variation in several variables has to be studied simultaneously. In statistics, multivariate analysis is interpreted as any analytic method that allows simultaneous study of two or more dependent variables.

A mass-spectrometric technique that is used for microscopic chemical analysis. A beam of primary ions with an energy of 5-20 kiloelectronvolts (keV) bombards a small spot on the surface of the sample under ultra-high vacuum conditions. Positive and negative secondary ions sputtered from the surface are analyzed in a mass spectrometer in regards to their mass-to-charge ratio. Digital imaging can be generated from the secondary ion beams and their intensity can be measured. Ionic images can be correlated with images from light or other microscopy providing useful tools in the study of molecular and drug actions.
