Here, an electrokinetic extraction (EkE) syringe is presented allowing for on‐line electrokinetic removal of serum proteins before ESI-MS. The proposed concept is demonstrated by the determination of pharmaceuticals from human serum within minutes, with sample preparation limited to a 5× dilution of the sample in the background electrolyte (BGE) and application of voltage, both of which can be performed in‐syringe. Signal enhancements of 3.6-32 fold relative to direct infusion of diluted serum and up to 10.8 fold enhancement, were obtained for basic and acidic pharmaceuticals, respectively. Linear correlations for the basic drugs by EkE‐ESI‐MS/MS were achieved, covering the necessary clinical range with LOQs of 5.3, 7.8, 6.1, and 17.8 ng mL-1 for clomipramine, chlorphenamine, pindolol, and atenolol, respectively. For the acidic drugs, the EkE‐ESI‐MS LOQs were 3.1 μg mL-1 and 2.9 μg mL-1 for naproxen and paracetamol, respectively. The EkE‐ESI‐MS and EkE‐ESI‐MS/MS methods showed good accuracy (%found of 81 % to 120 %), precision (≤20 %), and linearity (r>0.997) for all the studied drugs in spiked serum samples.
