BioVision Inc Acid Phosphatase Activity Colorimetric Assay Kit: High-Throughput Ready Colorimetric Assay to Measure Acid Phosphatase (AP) activity in Cells, Tissues, Serum, Plasma, Urine, Semen and Cell Culture Media. High sensitivity, Simple & Direct. 500 Assays.
Manufacturer: BioVision Inc K411500
Acid phosphatases (AP) dephosphorylate phosphate groups from phosphate esters under acid conditions. Different acid phosphatase isozymes are found in different organs, and their serum levels are used as a diagnostic for disease in the corresponding organs. Elevated prostatic acid phosphatase levels may indicate the presence of prostate cancer and elevated tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase levels may indicate the bone disease. BioVision’s Acid Phosphatase Assay Kit is a high sensitivity, simple, direct and HTS-ready colorimetric assay designed to measure AP activity in serum and other samples. It is suitable for research and drug discovery. The kit uses p-nitrophenyl phosphate (pNPP) as a phosphatase substrate which turns yellow (λmax = 405 nm) when dephosphorylated by AP. The kit can detect µU acid phosphatase activity in samples. BioVision charges an Ice pack and Insulated Container fee of $25.00 for each order.
