Total Collagen Assay Kit (Colorimetric): Collagen is the most abundant insoluble protein found in the extracellular matrix and connective tissues. It can be found in skin, tendons, bone, cartilage, muscle, vitreous humor and ligaments, among other tissues. Excessive production of collagen is linked to pathological conditions including liver cirrhosis, lung fibrosis, and tumor growth. BioVision's Collagen Assay Kit is a simple and sensitive assay to detect small amounts of collagens in a variety of samples. The assay is based on the acid hydrolysis of samples to form hydrolysates and Hydroxyproline. This released Hydroxyproline gets oxidized to form a reaction intermediate, which further in the reaction, forms a chromophore (Abs 560 nm). The assay is simple, sensitive and specific for collagen and can detect as low as 0.5 ¿g of collagen in a variety of samples such as tissue homogenates, biological fluids and purified proteins. BioVision charges an Ice pack fee for each order.
