A ratiometric and non-enzymatic luminescence assay for uric acid: differential quenching of lanthanide excited states by anti-oxidants

Abstract

The excited states of Tb and Eu complexes of a common macrocyclic ligand are quenched preferentially by electron transfer from the urate anion, allowing the creation of a new assay to measure uric acid in biological fluids.
