The SensoLyte® Plus 520 MMP-9 Assay Kit is designed for specifically detecting MMP-9 activity in biological samples which may contain multiple MMPs, such as culture medium, serum, plasma, synovial fluid, and tissue homogenate. A specific anti-MMP-9 monoclonal antibody is used in combination with a MMP fluorogenic substrate, 5-FAM/QXL®520 FRET peptide. The fluorescence signal is monitored at Ex/Em=490 nm/520 nm upon MMP-9-induced cleavage of the FRET substrate. Ample materials are provided to perform 96 assays in a 96-well format.
