Commercially available uricase and peroxidase have been immobilized onto alkylamine glass and arylamine glass beads respectively. A discrete method has been developed to determine uric acid in serum using immobilized uricase and peroxidase. The method is based on generation of H2O2 from serum uric acid by immobilized uricase and its measurement by a colour reaction catalyzed by immobilized peroxidase. The minimum detection limit of the method was 8 microg/0.1 ml sample. The mean analytical recovery of added uric acid in serum was 87.5%. The within and between assay coefficient of variation (C.V.) were <6.58% and <10.77% respectively. The serum uric acid in apparently healthy adults and persons suffering from different disease was found to be 25-55 microg/ml, 32+/-2.25 (range, mean+/-S.D.) and 55-200 microg/ml; 52+/-6.4 (range, mean+/-S.D.) respectively by our method. A good correlation (r = 0.8170) was obtained between the serum urate values by this method and with those obtained by commercial Enzo-kit method.
