New HPLC Kit for 1-Hydroxypyrene in Urine

New HPLC Kit for 1-Hydroxypyrene in Urine


Chromsystems now provides the most efficient commercial CE-IVD-certified solution for the determination of 1-Hydroxypyrene in Urine by HPLC.



Main benefits:


Complete kit
The kit provides everything you require including internal standard and mobile phase.


Fast sample prep
The sample preparation takes place in only two steps: 1-hydroxypyrene is deconjugated by an efficient and fast enzymatic hydrolysis, followed by solid phase extraction using Sample Clean Up Columns. The correct pH for the hydrolysis can be visually verified by a colour changing indicator.


Efficient and reliable hydrolysis
The hydrolysis step also takes only 2 hours, minimising the time required for the sample preparation:


No need for high-end instrumentation
Laboratories can perform the analysis in less than 7 minutes with a simple isocractic HPLC system, eliminating the need for complex HPLC or UHPLC systems.



1-Hydroxypyrene is a metabolite of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and is excreted in urine, making it highly suitable for biological monitoring. PAH’s are genotoxic chemicals associated with cancer. Biological monitoring in occupational medicine is essential: Typically high exposure levels can occur in factories producing graphite electrodes, aluminium, tar, fireproof material, and coke ovens.
