The HABA Biotin Quantitation Kit provides a convenient method for estimating the molar ratio of biotin to protein in biotin-protein conjugates or for quantitating biotin concentration in a solution. The assay employs HABA (4’-hydroxyazobenzene-2-carboxylic acid), a reagent that shows dramatic spectral changes when bound to avidin. Biotin easily displaces HABA from the HABA/Avidin complex, resulting in a decrease of absorption at 500 nm. The kit is best used to determine biotin concentration in the range from 2 to 16 µM. The assay can be performed in a cuvette or microplate format.
