Polymer-based reversed-phase semi-micro column,
DE413-2B was used with LC/MS detector to quantify 7 kinds of diarrheic and lipid-soluble shelfish poisons. Generally, mouse has been used for the shellfish poisoning testing, but alternative testing method was required due to animal testing’s long analysis time, low repeatability, and animal right view of points. The LC/MS method is rapid and also determines the compounds that are difficult to be detected using animal testing. DE413-2B can be used in a wide pH range (2-11) with a flexible solvent selection (any portion of 100% water to 100% selected organic solvent).
Add 9 mL of 90% (v/v) methanol to shellfish gut
