Abstract
A rapid, readily automated method has been developed for the quantitative analysis of phenobarbital from human liver tissues based on supercritical carbon dioxide extraction followed by fluorescence enzyme immunoassay. The method developed significantly reduces sample handling and utilizes the entire liver homogenate. The current method yields comparable recoveries and precision and does not require the use of an internal standard, although traditional GC/MS confirmation can still be performed on sample extracts. Additionally, the proposed method uses non-toxic, inexpensive carbon dioxide, thus eliminating the use of halogenated organic solvents.
