Development and characterization of an immunoaffinity column for the selective extraction of bisphenol A from serum samples.
ABSTRACT An immunoaffinity column (IAC) was developed by covalently coupling polyclonal antibodies against estrogenic bisphenols to CNBr-activated Sepharose 4B. The IAC showed high affinity for bisphenol A, while phenol was barely retained. Proteins in the sample matrix showed little nonspecific adsorption on the column. The best binding solvent for bisphenol A was found to be 0.01 mol l(-1) phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) and the optimal operating temperature was 4 degrees C. The bound bisphenol A could be quantitatively recovered by 1 ml of methanol-water (80:20) with an average recovery of 91.8% and a relative standard deviation of 7.1% (n=6). The immunoaffinity column has been successfully used for the isolation and purification of bisphenol A from serum samples.
Article: Preparation and characterization of an immunoaffinity column for the selective extraction of salbutamol from pork sample.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: A rapid, simple, and reliable determination method for salbutamol in pork was developed with immunoaffinity column (IAC) extraction followed by HPLC analysis. The salbutamol immunoaffinity column was prepared by coupling CNBr-activated Sepharose-4B with the anti-salbutamol polyclonal antibody which was purified by caprylic acid-ammonium sulfate. The coupling rate of the antibody and Sepharose-4B was 98.6%, and the dynamic column capacity of IAC was 400 ng/mL gel. The average recoveries of salbutamol from spiked pork samples at levels of 2, 10, 20, and 50 ng/g ranged from 83.3% to 92.2%, with the relative standard deviations of 2.8-7.0% (n=5), and the limits of detection and qualification were 0.25 ng/g and 0.5 ng/g, respectively.Journal of chromatographic science 01/2011; 49(4):276-80. · 0.88 Impact Factor
