Simple TBARS Quantification Kit for screening lipid peroxidation

Simple TBARS Quantification Kit for screening lipid peroxidation

Cayman Chemical offers a simple, reproducible TBARS assay kit for colourimetric or fluorometric quantification of total malondialdehyde (MDA) in a wide variety of samples. With all required reagents included, the kit provides a 0-50 μM dynamic range when using colourimetric (530-540 nm) detection and 0-5 μM using the fluorometric (530 nm ex 550 nm em) detection option. If lipoprotein fractions are first precipitated from samples, testing becomes specific for lipid peroxidation as interfering soluble TBARS are minimised. A TCA method is also available (rather than SDS) which reduces cloudiness and improves the compactness of the cell pellet.
