An on-line coupling of microdialysis to a packed capillary column switching liquid chromatographic system (0.2 mm I.D.) and mass spectrometric detection was developed. The microdialysates were collected in the loop of the first of three valves, coupled in direct series. A deuterated internal standard was added on-line by the middle valve and the third valve operated both a pre-column, for desalting of the physiological buffer used in the sampling procedure, and a separation column. The on-line system was used to study free concentrations of ropivacaine and its metabolite (PPX) in human plasma samples. The analytes were detected by electrospray ionization in a tandem mass spectrometer operating in multiple reaction monitoring mode. The free fractions of ropivacaine (200 nM total concentration) and PPX (20 nM total concentration) in spiked plasma samples were 12±3 and 47±5% (±standard deviation for day-to-day variations, n=3), respectively.
