Abstract We describe a procedure for the direct measurement of metanephrine (MN) and normetanephrine (NMN) in hydrolyzed urine, using HPLC with coulometric array detection. Acid-hydrolyzed samples were diluted and filtered before separation by isocratic reversed-phase ion-pair chromatography. Eight serial coulometric sensors, set at incrementally increasing anodic potentials, were used to screen lower-oxidizing interferences and provide stepwise oxidation of the metanephrines. Voltammetric behavior across three adjacent sensors was used to assess resolution and aid in peak identification. Values obtained in commercial controls were consistently within the specified target range. Variability, expressed as CV, was 5.45-9.22\% between runs and 1.60-4.52\% within-run for both compounds. The limit of detection was 2.6 micrograms/L for MN and 2.8 micrograms/L for NMN, with a linear response to 15.0 mg/L for both analytes. Results from patients' samples correlated well with those by a method involving dual ion-exchange extraction (r = 0.963, n = 82 for MN; r = 0.9768, n = 83 for NMN). This procedure provided high selectivity and objective peak purity information while greatly simplifying sample preparation.
