    We developed a new multiplexed reversed phase liquid chromatography-high resolution tandem mass spectrometric (LC-MS/MS) method. The method is based on isobaric labeling with a tandem mass tag (TMT10-plex) and stable isotope-labeled internal standards, and was used to analyze amino acids in mouse brain microdialysis samples. The TMT10-plex labeling of amino acids allowed analysis of ten samples in one LC-MS/MS run, significantly increasing the sample throughput. The method provides good chromatographic performance (peak half-width between 0.04-0.12 min), allowing separation of all TMTlabeled amino acids with acceptable resolution and high sensitivity (limits of detection typically around 10 nM). The use of stable isotope-labeled internal standards, together with TMT10-plex labeling, ensured good repeatability (relative standard deviation 0.994), indicating good quantitative performance of the multiplexed method. The method was applied to study the effect of d-amphetamine microdialysis perfusion on amino acid concentrations in the mouse brain. All amino acids were reliably detected and quantified, indicating that the method is sensitive enough to detect low concentrations of amino acids in brain microdialysis samples.
