Separation of Neurotransmitters on Coresep 100 Column in Reversed-Phase and Cation-Exchange Modes

Application description

Catecholamines (neurotransmitters) are derivatives of the amino acid tyrosine. DOPA, tyrosine, phenylalanine, norepinephrine, epinephrine, and dopamine. Fast and efficient method with base-line separation was achieved on Coresep 100 column. All compounds are separated by combination of reversed-phase and cation-exchange mechanisms. Peak order and retention time can be changed by switching from TFA to ammonium formate in the mobile phase, by adjusting mobile phase composition and by changing pH. The method is fully compatible with mass spectroscopy and can be used for fast analysis of neurotransmitters in biofluids. regular. Method can be used a replacement for analysis of neurotransmitters by UPLC with ion-pairing reagents.
