Studies of the available fluorometric assay procedures for LSD-25 are described for possible clinical application. Variability of plasma blank background fluorescence values were found to prohibit the use of standard fluorometric procedures without modification. A little known fluorometric procedure is described which minimuzes this problem and maintains the sensitivity of the assay at the nanogram level. Modifications of this method are suggested which could increase the sensitivity of this method to the subnanogram level.
