|Abstract:||An assay of norepinephrine (NE), epinephrine (E), dopamine (DA), normetanephrine (NE) and metanephrine (MN) based on high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) in combination with atmospheric pressure chemical ionization mass spectrometry (APcI-MS) is described. The catecholamines and metanephrines were extracted from urine and aqueous samples using Bio-Rex 70 cation-exchange resin and subjected to analysis by HPLC/APcI-MS. The separation was performed on a C18 column in 50 mM ammonium formate buffer, pH 3.0, using a flow rate of 0.8 mL/min. Acetonitrile was added post-column at a flow rate of 0.2 mL/min via a post-column addition tee. The total analysis time was 6.5 min. The quantitative analysis was performed using 3,4-dihydroxybenzylamine (DHBA) as the internal standard (I.S.). Selected ion monitoring detection was applied: m/z 170 (for NE), 184. (for E and NM), 154 (for DA), 198 (for MN) and 140 (for DHBA, I.S.). The limits of quantitation were 5 ng/mL for NE, E and DA and 2.5 ng/mL for NM and MN. The recovery ranged from 75 to 83 % for each analyte. The method was found to be simple and highly selective for the determination of catecholamines and metanephrines in the urine of patients suspected of pheochromocytoma.
