Abstract A simple method is described for the determination of androgens, particularly dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEAS), in human plasma and urine. The method does not involve extraction or chromatography. An internal standard is used as reference. The androgens are enzymatically converted to estrogens and these latter compounds can be measured by the enzymatic method previously described . The range of accuracy was between 99 and 103%. The precision of the method was 2.5%. The sensitivity was 0.1 pM per sample. The method is suitable for routine use, and one worker can easily perform twenty assays in one day.
