Automated determination of urinary creatinine without sample dilution: theory and practice.

The rate of the Jaffé reaction depends on the concentration of sodium hydroxide; the pseudo-first-order rate constant of the reaction, at 37 degrees C in 10 mmol/L picrate solution, is 0.004 mmol/L. We formulated an automated method to determine urinary creatinine directly without manual sample dilution. The conditions are as follows: 10 mmol/L picrate and… CONTINUE READING
