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.

HPLC Analysis of Underivatized Amino Acids on Coresep S Column in HILIC and Cation-Exchange Modes
Application description

Amino acids serve as building blocks, drugs and nutrients. The usual approach for analysis of amino acids include reversed-phase chromatography with an ion-pairing reagent, derivatization, and hydrophilic interaction chromatography (HILIC). Three amino acids (phenylalanine, tyrosine, and DOPA) were retained and separated in underivatized form in HILIC cation-exchange mode of core-shell mixed-mode HPLC column. This method is fast and reliable and provides base-line separation for all amino acids in the application. Method can be adopted for analysis of other amino acids.
