The creatinine concentration of human urine is closely related to human kidney health and its rapid, quantitative, and low-cost detection has always been demanded. Herein, a surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopic (SERS) method for rapid and cost-effective quantification of creatinine concentrations in human urine was developed. A Au nanoparticle solution (Au sol) was used as a SERS substrate and the influence of different agglomerating salts on its sensitivity toward detecting creatinine concentrations was studied and optimized, as well as the effect of both the salt and Au sol concentrations. The variation in creatinine spectra over time on different substrates was also examined, demonstrating reproducible quantitative analysis of creatinine concentrations in solution. By adjusting the pH, a simple liquid-liquid solvent extraction procedure, which extracted creatinine from human urine, was used to increase the SERS detection selectivity toward creatinine in complex matrices. The quantitative results were compared to those obtained with a clinically validated enzymatic "creatinine kit (CK)." The limit of detection (LOD) for the SERS technique was 1.45 mg L-1, compared with 3.4 mg L-1 for the CK method. Furthermore, cross-comparing the results from the two methods, the average difference was 5.84% and the whole SERS detection process could be completed within 2 min compared with 11 min for the CK, indicating the practicality of the quantitative SERS technique. This novel quantitative technique shows promises as a high-throughput platform for relevant clinical and forensic analysis.
