Paper Abstract

Direct determination of catecholamine noradreanaline (NOR) is presented using o-phthaldialdehyde (OPA) as an indicator reagent. The fluorescent assay in which OPA forms with NOR a fluorescent complex (OPA-NOR) can be monitored at neutral, physiological conditions (pH 7) and performed in microtiterplates. The determination of NOR is optimal in the concentration range from 4.0×10-7 to 1.0×10-5 M and limit of detection is 4.0×10-7 M. The OPA-NOR complex maximum intensity is reached within 5 minutes. Dopamine and adrenaline could not be determined using the same approach.
