Abstract: Oxalate in urine was measured by grain Sorghum leaf oxalate oxidase conjugated to alkyl amine glass beads affixed in a beaker. The minimum detection limit was 0.05 mM/L in urine. Recovery of added oxalate in urine was 80.5% and within and between assay, coefficients of variation (CV) were <4% and <5.5%, respectively. Urinary oxalate values obtained by the present method showed a good correlation (r = 0.947) with those by Sigma kit method. The method is not only free from tedious handling of free glass beads and Cl⁻ interference, but also has longer stability and reusability of immobilized enzyme compared to that of barley root and forage Sorghum leaf.
