- Colorimetric assay detection range 1-30 μM
- Fluorometric assay detection range 0.1–1.5 μM
- For samples from all sort of species
Thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) are low-molecular-weight end products that are formed during the decomposition of lipid peroxidation products. Increased levels of TBARS have been demonstrated in various diseases, such as atherosclerosis, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, liver disorders, and inflammatory rheumatic diseases.
Assay Genie’s TBARS assay is based on the reaction of TBARS with thiobarbituric acid (TBA) to form a pink colored product. The color intensity at 535nm or fluorescence intensity at (О»ex/em = 560nm/585nm) is directly proportional to TBARS concentration in the sample.
