QuantiChrom™ ABTS Antioxidant Assay Kit

Description



Application

  • For quantitative determination of antioxidant capacity in food, beverage, and urine samples.

Key Features

  • Fast and convenient. 5-minute reagent incubation period allows for quick sample testing.
  • Adaptable. Compatible with aqueous and ethanol extracted samples, and stable signal allows for extended run-time length (up to 2 hours).
  • High-throughput. Homogeneous “mix-incubate-measure” type assay. Can be readily automated to assay thousands of samples per day.

  • Food, beverage, and urine samples

Species

  • All

Procedures

  • 35 min

Size

  • 100 tests in 96-well plate

Detection Limit

  • 20 μM Trolox equivalents

Shelf Life

  • 6 months

More Details

2,2′-azinobis-(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) (ABTS•+) is a green cation radical that returns to its colorless state when reduced. The ABTS assay is widely used to measure antioxidant capacity, which is the ability of redox molecules in foods and biological systems to scavenge free radicals. BioAssay Systems’ ABTS antioxidant assay measures the change in absorbance that occurs when the ABTS radical is reduced and decolorized from green to clear. The decrease in absorbance at 650 nm is directly proportional to the antioxidant concentration and is compared to a Trolox antioxidant standard curve.
