OxiSelect™ Total Antioxidant Capacity (TAC) Assay Kit

User Manual
Research Area: Oxidative Stress
Assay Category: Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) and Antioxidant Assays
Sample Type: Suitable for use with plasma, serum, urine, cell lysates, tissue homogenates and food extracts
Detection Method: Colorimetric

Product Description

The OxiSelect TAC Assay Kit is a fast and reliable kit for the direct measurement of total antioxidant capacity from cell lysate, plasma, serum, urine, tissue homogenates, and food extracts. Each kit provides sufficient reagents to perform up to 200 assays, including blanks, antioxidant standards and unknown samples. Hydrophilic and lipophilic samples are compatible with the assay.

Assay Principle

The Kit measures the total antioxidant capacity within a sample. Samples are compared to a known concentration of uric acid standard within a 96-well microtiter plate format. Samples and standards are diluted with a reaction reagent and, upon the addition of copper, the reaction proceeds for a few minutes. The reaction is stopped and read with a standard 96-well spectrophotometric microplate reader at 490 nm. Antioxidant capacity is determined by comparison with the uric acid standards.
