The Gamma-GlutamylTransferase (GGT; EC is an enzyme that transfers gamma-glutamyl functional groups. It is found in many tissues, the most notable one being the liver, and has significance in medicine as a diagnostic marker. BioVision’s Gamma-GlutamylTransferase Assay Kit provides a convenient tool for sensitive detection of the GGT in a variety of samples. The GGT in sample will recognize L-γ-Glutamyl-AMC as a specific substrate leading to proportional fluorescence development. The activity of GGT can be easily quantified fluorometrically (Ex/Em = 365/460 nm). This assay detects GGT activity as low as 0.02 mIU in sample.

Please provide recommended protocols for plasma sample preparation. Will EDTA interfere with the assay performance?
Here’s the recommended protocol for plasma sample preparation: Collect blood using EDTA as an anticoagulant. (EDTA is fine, don’t use heparin or citrate). Centrifuge the blood at 700-1000xg for 10’ at room temperature. Pipette off the top yellow plasma layers without disturbing the white buffy layer. You might need to dilute the plasma sample 1:2 with assay buffer if required. Add the plasma (diluted or undiluted) directly into each well. Adjust volume to 50ul with GGT assay buffer.
