Vitamin B1 (TPP, thiamine pyrophosphate)

Vitamin B6 (PLP, pyridoxal 5’-phosphate)

Clinical relevance

Vitamin B1 (thiamine) plays an important role in deriving energy from carbohydrates and fats. The active form is thiamine pyrophosphate (TPP), a coenzyme for some enzymatic reactions in carbohydrate metabolism and for pyruvate decarboxylase. TPP is also significantly involved in the oxidative degradation of glucose. The determination of the TPP concentration is more significant than measurements of total thiamine, as by this method only the physiologically active form is taken into account.

Vitamin B6 comprises pyridoxine, pyridoxamine and pyridoxal, as well as their phosphate derivatives. It is ingested with food and transferred via several enzymatic conversions into its active form, pyridoxal-5’-phosphate (PLP). PLP is involved in nearly one hundred different enzymatic reactions, among other things, as co-factor in amino acid metabolism, and in the formation of haemoglobin or neurotransmitters in the brain.

 

Product advantages

  • High throughput due to separation in less than 3 minutes
  • Reliable and reproducible results with a specific internal standard for each parameter
  • Easy sample preparation with Pre-mixed Tubes

 

The new UHPLC kit facilitates the combined analysis of vitamin B1 in whole blood and vitamin B6 in whole blood or plasma. Due to faster analysis times in less than 3 minutes, this method fulfils the requirements of clinical laboratories with higher sample throughput. The easy and efficient sample preparation consists of a single precipitation step and a final derivatisation in a reaction vial. The internal standard for each of the two parameters and special quality controls ensure precise and reliable quantification.

Chromsystems also offers two more kits that feature determination using HPLC: a standard version as well as one with pre-mixed tubes.

An automated method using HPLC is also available for laboratories with higher sample throughput.

  • Mix 200 μl whole blood/plasma with 100 μl Internal Standard and 300 μl Precipitation Reagent in an amber vial (light protection).
  • Shake 30 s (vortex).
  • Centrifuge 5 min at 14000 x g.
  • Add 100 μl Derivatisation Mix in a labelled Pre-mixed Neutralisation Tube and add 250 μl of the supernatant from step 1-3, mix briefly.
    Do not centrifuge the precipitate!
  • Incubate 25 min at 60° C (water bath).
  • Incubate for 10 min at +2 to +8 °C and centrifuge for 2 min at 14000 x g.
