Abstract
Vitamin D deficiency is a widespread clinical problem and has been associated with many adverse health outcomes. Analysis of Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) and D3 (cholecalciferol) and their major metabolites 25(OH)D2 and 25(OH)D3 has become a high priority topic in clinical analysis. Since water loss is a favored process, in-source self dehydration of vitamin D can decrease S/N and such an undesirable process was tightly controlled. In-source water loss was found to be insignificant (~8%) within the assay linear range, using a methanol/water mobile phase under our experimental conditions. In contrast, if acetonitrile/ water was used, severe in-source water loss was observed and ions m/z 395.2 and m/z 383.2 resulting from analyte in-source dehydration became predominant. When acetonitrile was used as mobile phase, and if only the transitions m/z 395.2?→?377.2 for 25(OH)D2 and m/z 383.2?→?377.2 for 25(OH)D3 were used for quantitation, the assay standard curve was still acceptably linear; however the area ratio between analyte and its in-source water loss product was non-linear at different analyte concentrations. The concentration-dependent water loss varied by 20%, resulting in a significant quantitation error in this provisionally valid assay. For an acetonitrile-based mobile phase, both transitions (for analyte and for its in-source dehydrated product) should be summed to maintain true full range assay linearity.
