Separation of Potential Urine Biomarker from Isobaric ß-Alanine

This developed LCMS method can separate Sarcosine from Beta- Alanine in serum and urine samples without using labor intensive sample derivatization. Since Sarcosine is considered a potential biomarker for prostate cancer risk and aggressiveness, it is essential to resolve and accurately quantify this compound in the presence of isobaric (same m/z) Beta-Alanine.

The developed method is Sensitive, Specific, Quantitative, and Reproducible (%RSD = 0.1). It can be used in large scale studies with numerous samples (high throughput of the method due to simple sample preparation).

Note: When Reversed Phase Columns were evaluated for their ability to separate Sarcosine from Beta-Alanine, both compounds eluted at the solvent front and were not separated. To achieve separation, a very intensive sample preparation has to be employed (e.g. derivatization) when using RP methods.
