    A micro procedure for estimating uric acid in body fluids, based on the carbonate method, is described. Interferences are elucidated. The stoichiometry of the reaction is carefully worked out. Reliability of the method is established by comparison with two other methods, by recovery experiments, and by replicate analyses.
