NAD(P)H coenzyme concentrations were determined with the combination of a nitrite-selective membrane electrode and a nitrate reductase enzyme. The method was based on the detection of nitrite formed by the enzymatic reaction of NAD(P)H with nitrate catalyzed by nitrate reductase. The lower detection limits for both these coenzymes were around 100 µM. This system was applied to detect glucose by combining an additional glucose dehydrogenase enzyme. Serum glucose levels could be determined through the detection of nitrite.
