Omega fatty acids play an important role as biomarkers of chronic inflammatory diseases such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and inflammatory bowel disease. The purpose of our study was to develop a new analytical method for the detection of omega fatty acids from dried serum spots. We developed an ultrahigh performance liquid chromatography-electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry (UHPLC-ESI-MS/MS)-based method in the multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) mode with negative ionization. The detected MRM transitions for five omega fatty acids are as follow: α-linolenic acid (m/z=277.20→277.20), eicosapentaenoic acid (m/z=301.10→257.30), docosahexaenoic acid (m/z=327.00→283.15), arachidonic acid (m/z=303.20→259.25), and docosapentaenoic acid (m/z= 329.10→285.25). The calibration curve showed an excellent linearity within 0.1-2.5 μg/mL range (R2=0.9947~0.9994). The analytical methods howed excellent sensitivity (LOD: 0.005-0.01 μg/mL, LOQ: 0.03-0.1 μg/mL), which would allow for the targeted analyses of omega fatty acids. The recoveries of the omega fatty acid from the dried serum spots were 92.6%- 110.4% (RSD: ±0.2%-9.6%) and the retention time was within 5 min. This improved method offers rapid and sensitive quantification of omega fatty acids on dried serum spots using a small volume of serum and is expected to be applied to various biological specimens.
