Abstract

A high-performance liquid chromatographic method for the simultaneous determination of thiamin and thiamin phosphate esters in human blood or serum has been developed. The eluent consists of acetonitrile and phosphate buffer, in the ratios 90:10 (v/v) for the elution of thiamine and 60:40 (v/v) for the phosphate esters. The four compounds are eluted within 15 min. The detection limit is 13-16 fmol. Between-assay variation is 5-11%. Samples of whole blood and serum from 30 healthy adults were analysed. The following reference values were obtained for 15 females 15 males (nM, mean +/- S.D.). In serum: thiamin, 10.9 +/- 2.9/16.9 +/- 3.3; thiamin monophosphate, 8.3 +/- 1.5/3.7 +/- 1.5. In whole blood: thiamin, 29.6 +/- 10.0/33.4 +/- 10.4; thiamin monophosphate, 9.7 +/- 2.3/10.9 +/- 5.1; thiamin diphosphate, 121 +/- 29.6/165 +/- 40.4.
