Development of an Ultrasensitive LC–MS-MS Method for Determination of 5-Fluorouracil in Mouse Plasma
5-Fluorouracil (5-FU) is a low-molecular-weight anticancer drug in clinical use for several solid tumors in humans. Currently, the most widely used methodology for 5-FU quantitation is liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry (LC–MS-MS) with either liquid–liquid extraction (LLE), protein precipitation, or a combination of both as sample cleanup procedures.

Development of a Quantitative SPE-LC/MS/MS Assay for Teriparatide in Human Plasma
This study provides a single, simple method for the quantification of teriparatide in human plasma. The method uses UPLC and fast, selective sample prep in 96-well format to achieve a limit of detection (LOD) of 15 pg/mL, a dynamic range of 15 to 500 pg/mL, and an average QC accuracy of 97.5% (across six sources of matrix) from 200 μL of human plasma.Learn more
