Validation of a high performance liquid chromatography analysis for the determination of noradrenaline and adrenaline in human urine with an on-line sample purification.

Tidsskriftartikel - 1999

Resume

A high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method with fluorescence detection including an on-line purification was established for determination of catecholamines in human urine. The method was evaluated using samples of pooled urine spiked with catecholamines and validated for measurements of catecholamines in urine of healthy individuals in a field study. The laboratory method evaluation study showed that the recovery of the method was 0.82 (confidence interval (CI): 0.79-0.86) and 0.92 (CI: 0.89-0.95) for noradrenaline and adrenaline, respectively. Thus, correction factors of 0.82-1 and 0.92-1 were applied to correct the measurement results for this systematic effect. Furthermore, an uncertainty budget was generated for the analytical method using the BIPM-approach recommended by the International Organization for Standardization. The relative uncertainty of the method was estimated to be 10-12%, which was consistent with the observed relative variability found in the method evaluation. The method was evaluated in accordance with EURACHEM Guidance Document No 1 concerning accreditation for chemical laboratories with respect to accuracy and precision. The field study showed that the standard deviation of the method was sufficiently low to distinguish between persons working with two different processes of garbage collection, i.e. collection using four wheeled containers versus collection using bins.
