Evaluation of a new thin layer chromatographic confirmation technique for positive emit enzyme multiplied immunoassay cannabinoid urine samples

, : Evaluation of a new thin layer chromatographic confirmation technique for positive emit enzyme multiplied immunoassay cannabinoid urine samples. Research Communications in Substances of Abuse 6(1): 1-10

A bonded phase adsorption thin-layer chromatography (BPA-TLC) confirmation procedure was tested for urine samples found positive by the [enzyme multiplied immunoassay] EMIT-dau cannabinoid assay. A total of 803 samples were tested including 47 EMIT-dau negatives. The BPA-TLC system was very effective confirming both EMIT positive and negative samples. The BPA-TLC system separates and identifies the major metabolite of .DELTA.9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), 110-nor-.DELTA.9-THC-9-Carboxylic acid (THC). When Fast Blue RR was used as the color reagent 647 samples were correctly identified as positive or negative, of the 662 tests, yielding 97.7% efficiently. With Fast Blue B, 138 confirmations of 141 EMIT positive samples yielded 97.9% efficiency. No false positives were observed and after pooling the data, 785 samples of 803 were correctly identified by the BPA-TLC system (97.8%). The BPA-TLC technique is evidently practical, quick, inexpensive and very reliable for the confirmation of EMIT positive cannabinoid urine samples.

The development and progression of breast cancer involves the activation of numerous protein kinases, and the change in phosphorylation is a hallmark of protein kinase activation. In this study, we identified a comprehensive profile to predict in...
