Evaluating taurine status: determination of plasma and whole blood taurine concentration

Evaluating taurine status: determination of plasma and whole blood taurine concentration

Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry 2(10): 571-576

A rapid and sensitive method for estimating taurine in plasma and whole blood that uses pre-column derivatization and high-performance liquid chromatography based on that of Larsen et al. (Journal of Chromatographic Science (1980) 18, 233-236) after preliminary sample purification by ion-exchange column chromatography is described.
