An iodometric method for the analysis of hydroperoxides has been automated to allow analysis of aqueous biological samples (containing less than 20 mg/ml protein) and lipid hydroperoxide extracts. The evolution of triiodide ions is measured spectrophotometrically at 370 nm. Dependent on the type of sample, 30-60 samples can be analyzed per hour and the system allows detection of less than 100 pmol of peroxide. The assay is linear over a range of 100 pmol to 25 nmol. The sample volume used routinely was 80 μl.
