To overcome problems arising from the coloration of urine samples and the limitations of the picric acid method when determining creatinine in urine, we have established an alternative method using 1H-NMR. The method is practically straight forward, provides good recoveries of 105 ± 2%, and a linear regression yielded an R2 value of 1. The method revealed a similar precision to the standard procedure based on the Jaffé reaction for urine samples without interfering components.
