Complex biological samples, such as urine, contain a very large number of endogenous metabolites reflecting the metabolic state of an organism. Metabolite patterns can provide a comprehensive signature of the physiological state of an organism as well as insights into specific biochemical processes. Although the metabolites excreted in urine are commonly highly polar, the samples are generally analyzed using reversed-phase liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (RP-LC/MS). In Part I of this work, a method for detecting highly polar metabolites by hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography-electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (HILIC/ESI-MS) is described as a complement to RP-LC/ESI-MS. In addition, in an accompanying paper (Part 2), different multivariate approaches to extracting information from the resulting complex data are described to enable metabolic fingerprints to be obtained. The coverage of the method for the screening of as many metabolites as possible is highly improved by analyzing the urine samples using both a C-18 column and a ZIC (R)-HILIC column. The latter was found to be a good alternative when analyzing highly polar compounds, e.g., hydroxyproline and creatinine, to columns typically used for reversed-phase liquid chromatography.
