UCT’s Clean Screen® Xcel 1 SPE 96 Well Plates Cited in Animal Study

The correlation of drugs in decomposed human remains and animals is very useful for forensic toxicologists working with complex matrices that go beyond post mortem samples.  In a recent paper published in Journal of Analytical Toxicology, Lucas M. Morrison et al.,(doi: 10.1093/jat/bkx040)  employed UCT’s famous Xcel I SPE sorbent to extract Dextromethorphan (DXM) and its primary metabolite (DXT) from the remains of rats. They analyzed DXM and DXT in skeletal remains of rats following acute (ACU, 75 mg/kg, IP, n = 10) or three repeated (REP, 25 mg/kg, IP, n = 10, 40-minute intervals) doses of DXM.

UCT Dispersive SPE Sorbent Cited in Anticoagulant Rodenticides Article

In a new paper by Lori Smith et al, published in the Journal of Food and Agricultural Chemistry (DOI: 10.1021/acs.jafc.7b02280), a wide and diverse range of anticoagulant rodenticides (ARs) were analyzed in rodent liver samples using UCT's dispersive SPE (d-SPE) tubes for sample clean-up. ARs are used to control rodent populations, acting as vitamin K antagonists by inhibiting vitamin K epoxide reductase. Consequently, formation of prothrombin and related blood-clotting factors (VII, IX and X) are blocked, causing massive hemorrhage and mortality.

UCT Flagship Clean Screen® DAU cited in NPS Article

UCT is well-recognized for its flagship solid phase extraction (SPE) sorbent Clean Screen® DAU. This acclaimed sorbent is employed by many forensic toxicology laboratories for the extraction of drugs and metabolites from biological matrices, including the increasingly encountered novel psychoactive substances (NPS). In a new paper authored by C.Mitchell-Mata in Journal of Analytical Toxicology (doi: 10.1093/jat/bkx048), CSDAU206 was used to extract 3- and 4-methoxyphencyclidine (3-MeO-PCP, 4-MeO-PCP) in forensic cases.
