Background: Urinary iodine is a good biochemical marker for control of iodine deficiency disorders. Our aim was to develop and validate a simple, rapid, and quantitative method based on the Sandell-Kolthoff re- action, incorporating both the reaction and the digestion process into a microplate format. Methods: Using a specially designed sealing cassette to prevent loss of vapor and cross-contamination among wells, ammonium persulfate digestion was performed in a microplate in an oven at 110 °C for 60 min. After the digestion mixture was transferred to a transparent mi- croplate and the Sandell-Kolthoff reaction was per- formed at 25 °C for 30 min, urinary iodine was measured by a microplate reader at 405 nm. Results: The mean recovery of iodine added to urine was 98% (range, 89 -109%). The theoretical detection limit, defined as 2 SD from the zero calibrator, was 0.11 mmol/L (14 mg/L iodine). The mean intra- and interassay CVs for samples with iodine concentrations of 0.30 -3.15 mmol/L were <10%. The new method agreed well with the conventional chloric acid digestion method (n 5 70; r 5 0.991; y 5 0.944x 1 0.04; Syzx 5 0.10) and with the inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry method (n 5 61; r 5 0.979; y 5 0.962x 1 0.03; Syzx 5 0.20). The agreement was confirmed by difference plots. The dis- tributions of iodine concentrations for samples from
