|Abstract||We present herein an ultra-fast quantitative assay for the quantitation of saquinavir in human plasma, without prior chromatographic separation, with matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization using the selected reaction monitoring quantitation mode (MALDI-SRM/MS). The method was found to be linear from 5 to 10,000 ng/ml using pentadeuterated saquinavir (SQV-d5) as an internal standard, and from 5 to 1000 ng/ml using reserpine as internal standard (IS). Accuracy and precision were in the range of 101-108%, 3.9-11% with SQV-d5 and in the range 93-108%, 3.5-15% with reserpine. Plasma samples (250 microl) were extracted with a mixture of ethyl acetate/hexane. MALDI spotting of the extract was automated using electrodeposition and the dried droplet method using alpha-cyano-4-hydroxycinnamic acid (CHCA) as matrix. A 96 spots MALDI plate was prepared within 20 min in a fully unattended manner. Each sample was spotted four times and quantitation was based on the average of their analyte/IS area ratio. Samples were analyzed on a triple quadrupole linear ion trap (QqQ(LIT)) equipped with a high repetition laser source (1000 Hz). The analysis time of one sample was approximately 6 s, therefore 96 samples could be analyzed in less than 10 min. With liquid-liquid extraction sample preparation no significant matrix effects were observed. Moreover, the assay showed sufficient selectivity for samples to be analyzed at the lower limit of quantification (LLOQ) in the presence of other antiretroviral drugs, without prior chromatographic steps. In parallel, to assess the selectivity of the assay with real samples, a liquid chromatography (LC)-SRM/MS method was developed and a cross validation with clinical samples was successfully performed.|
