Recent developments in restricted-access media (RAM) liquid chromatography make the simultaneous determination of total and free phenytoin concentrations possible by direct injection of drug-containing serum samples. A comparison of phenytoin free fraction determination by ultrafiltration coupled with fluorescence polarization immunoassay (TDX) to an improved direct injection RAM-HPLC method is presented. Our improved method differs from those previously reported with regard to column type, mobile-phase composition, and column temperature. Replicate samples analyzed by each method yielded similar values for serum phenytoin free fraction.
