Microdetermination of Urinary Constituents by Vertical Light-Path Photometry in Microplates
Automated photometric measurements in microtiter plates have been used for some years in our laboratory in order to determine kinetic parameters of crystal growth in gels (1). We have now applied vertical light-path photometry in 96-well microplates to quantify various soluble constituents of urine and serum which are relevant to diagnosis and basic research of urinary stone formation.
