Improved high-performance liquid chromatographic method for the determination of coenzyme Q10 in plasma



Improved high-performance liquid chromatographic method for the determination of coenzyme Q10 in plasma



Journal of Chromatography 593(1-2): 217-226



Coenzyme (Co) Q10 was dissociated from lipoproteins in plasma by treatment with methanol and extraction with n-hexane. Subsequent clean-up on silica gel and C18 solid-phase extraction cartridges with complete recovery (99 +/- 1.2%) produced a clean extract. High-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) separation was performed on a C18 reversed-phase column. Three simple, rapid procedures are presented: HPLC with final UV (275 nm) detection, a microanalysis utilizing a three-electrode electrochemical detector and a microanalysis with column-switching HPLC and electrochemical detection. The methods correlate very well with classical ethanol-n-hexane extraction with UV detection. The identity and purity of the Co Q10 peak were investigated and the resulting methods were concluded to be suitable for total plasma Co Q10 determination. The average level in healthy subjects was 0.80 +/- 0.20 mg/l; the minimum detectable Co Q10 plasma level was 0.05 and 0.005 mg/l for UV and electrochemical detection, respectively. The methods were applied to many samples and the plasma Co Q10 reference values for healthy subjects, athletes, hyperthyroid, hypothyroid and hypercholesterolaemic patients are given.
