For each experiment the area response obtained for the Optima methanol was designated as 100%, and the area response for the other methanols was expressed as a percentage of this reference area.
Although there were differences in ionization efficiency among the methanols, the ionization of analyte in relation to internal standard changed similarly as a function of the quality of the methanol in the mobile phase, so that the area ratios and calibration lines used to calculate drug concentrations in patient specimens were similar (Fig.
The stability of sirolimus, 32-desmethoxyrapamycin, tacrolimus, and ascomycin during the extraction of whole blood specimens with the 9 methanols was compared.
The sirolimus adduct ion profiles for selected lots of 5 methanols used to prepare mobile phase B are shown in Table 1.
In sample preparation and chromatography for these assays, we use methanol because it is readily available and less costly than acetonitrile.
