Try the following:
Green et al,  Anal.Biochem 126 (1982): 131-138
Kelm et al, J.Biol.Chem. 272 (1997): 9922-9932
Vodovotz, Biotechniques 20 (1996): 390-394
Moncada et al, Pharmacol.Rev. 43 (1991): 109-142

or look for Methods in nitric oxide research / edited by Martin Feeli,
published by John Wiley and Sons 1996 (a great reference book).

If you still have trouble, or need more info, let me know.
