Abstract

Abstract A comparison was made between the RIA method for paraquat in plasma, and a modified colorimetric method involving ion-pair extraction of paraquat. The comparison was carried out on plasma from patients admitted with paraquat poisoning. The correlation between the methods was good and both were found to be sufficiently rapid for emergency use.
