Background: Hybrid LC–MS assays for oligonucleotides rely on capture probes to develop assays with high sensitivity and specificity. Locked nucleic acid (LNA) probes are thermodynamically superior to existing capture probes, but are not currently used for hybrid LC–MS assays. Materials & methods: Using two lipid-conjugated double-stranded siRNA compounds as model analytes, hybrid LC–MS/MS assays using LNA probes were developed. Results: The workflows demonstrated the superiority of the LNA probes, optimized sample preparation conditions to maximize analyte recovery, evaluated the need for analytespecific internal standards, and demonstrated that advanced mass spectrometric technology can increase assay sensitivity by up to 20-fold. Conclusion: The workflow can be used in future bioanalytical studies to develop effective hybrid LC–MS/MS methods for siRNA analytes.
