A new simple and powerful technique, on-line sample collection after high-resolution step-wise gradient OPLC separation combined with digital autoradiography (DAR), has been used for isolation of plasma and urine metabolites of 3H- or 14C-radiolabeled deramciclane (a new anxiolytic compound). This highly efficient separation can be followed by different MS techniques (FAB-MS, FAB-MS-MS, HPLC-MS and HPLC-MS-MS) for determination of the structures of minor and major metabolites in different biological matrices. This combination of these methods resulted in a simple, sensitive, and efficient technique for metabolite research.
