Formaldehyde assay kit
- Direct determination of formaldehyde concentrations in biological, food and environmental samples
- Safe, non-radioactive assay
- Sensitive, detection as low as 1.5 μM (45 ppb)
- Convenient “Mix-incubate-measure” type assay
Formaldehyde is the simplest aldehyde and it is widely employed in industry for wide range of applications.
In our fluorometric formaldehyde assay kit, formaldehyde is derivatized with acetoacetanilide in the presence of ammonia. The resulting fluorescent product is then quantified fluorimetrically (Ex/Em = 370/470nm). The assay is simple, sensitive, stable and high-throughput adaptable. The assay can detect as low as 1.5 μM formaldehyde in biological samples.
