Abstract: A sensitive and specific method, utilising high performance liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS/MS) was developed for the quantitative determination of amlodipine in dried blood spot (DBS) samples. Chromatographic separation was achieved using a Waters XBridge C18 column with gradient elution of a mixture of water and acetonitrile containing 0.1% formic acid (v/v). Amlodipine was quantified using a Waters Quattro Premier mass spectrometer coupled with an electro-spray ionization (ESI) source in positive ion mode. The MRM transitions of 408.9?m/z?238.1m/z and 408.9?294.0?m/z were used to quantify and qualify amlodipine, respectively. The method was validated across the concentration range of 0.5-30ng/mL by assessing specificity, sensitivity, linearity, precision, accuracy, recovery and matrix effect according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidelines. This method was also validated clinically within a large pharmacoepidemiological study in which amlodipine blood concentration was determined in patients who had been prescribed this medication.
