Optimised and extended method
15 Steroids – 2 panels – 1 analytical column
With 96 SPE Well Plate

* Required Fields


This MassChrom® Steroid kit allows the quantitative determination of 15 steroids in serum/plasma by LC-MS/MS. Sample preparation is the same for both steroid panels using an optimised and efficient SPE sample clean up procedure with 96 SPE well plates. The use of stable isotope-labelled internal standards for every single analyte ensures reproducible and reliable quantitation of the steroids. The method does not require a high-end LC-MS/MS system to be carried out.

Alternatively, there is also a method available using Sample Clean Up Columns (72072/C/RUO).

Sample Preparation

  • Put 96 SPE Well Plate onto Waste Plate.
  • Pipette 0.8 ml Equilibration Reagent 1 into each well of the 96 SPE Well Plate, centrifuge and repeat with Equilibration Reagent 2.
  • Pipette 500 μl research sample/calibrator/ MassCheck® control, 50 μl Internal Standard Mix and 450 μl Extraction Buffer into each well, mix briefly (vortex) and centrifuge.
  • Add 2 x 0.7 ml Wash Buffer and centrifuge.
  • Place plate onto the Collection Plate.
  • Add 500 μl Elution Buffer and centrifuge.
  • Evaporate eluates in the Collection Plate (nitrogen or compressed air) to dryness.
  • Add 100 μl Reconstitution Buffer.
  • Shake Collection Plate, seal with adhesive seal and inject 5–50 μl of the eluate.
