(also turbidimetric analysis), a method of analyzing turbid media based on the measurement of the intensity of light absorbed by the media. Turbidimetric measurements are made in transmitted light with visual and photoelectric colorimeters and turbidimeters, which are essentially colorimeters without light filters. As in the case with nephelometry, turbidimetry requires that the formation conditions of the disperse phase be carefully maintained. A special type of turbidimetry is turbidimetric titration, in which the maximum of turbidity is determined by means of photoelectric colorimeters. Turbidimetry is used for analytical determinations in various media.

High sensitive C-reactive protein (CRP) levels were calculated with automated turbidimetry and serum albumin and creatinine levels were measured by using automated photometry.
In the present study, the prevalence of AR and ASR was 3.86% and 20.76%, respectively, assayed using turbidimetry in Chinese chronic stable angina patients, which was obviously lower than that found in other studies.
