Abstract

Analytical quantitation of compounds in tissue has become a more prevalent addition to biological sample analysis in recent times. This increase will most certainly continue to bring the question of proper analytical method validation to the forefront of discussion. Thoughtful design of sample homogenization, analyte fortification and extraction can ensure a successful analysis. This review presents current trends in tissue sample preparation by harvesting, homogenization techniques, as well as concerns for calibrator and QC preparation. Strategies for consideration and resolution of common pitfalls in method development, for example stability issues and control biomatrices in endogenous analysis, are also presented.
