A new procedure was developed for the rapid isolation of the A, E and F series prostaglandins from plasma extracts. This new procedure involves the use of mini-columns packed with acid-washed Florisil to rapidly separate the A, E and F series prostaglandins. These new mini-columns give flow rates of around 1 ml/min. and they generate a well-resolved chromatographic pattern while at the same time producing good recoveries for [3H]-labeled prostaglandins of the A, E and F series. Using these new mini-columns, large numbers of plasma extracts can be processed in a short period of time.
