A simple, differential extraction method for the simultaneous direct radioimmunoassay of androgens and androgen glucuronides in human serum.

A method is described for the differential extraction of unconjugated androgens (testosterone and dihydrotestosterone) and glucuronidated androgens (androstane-3 alpha,17 beta-diol glucuronide and androsterone glucuronide) from human serum using solid-phase, gravity-flow extraction columns. In this method, 100-microL aliquots of serum are loaded onto the… CONTINUE READING
