Amino Acid Assay Kits


Accurate quantification of L-amino acids in body fluids or purified samples may provide valuable information for diagnostic and basic research studies. With a diverse array of assays in this category, BioVision has a number of kits to interrogate different intermediates in the amino acid synthesis, remodeling and conversion pathways. We have a unique and diverse range of assays for branched chain amino acids, phenylalanine, glutamate, aspartate, hydroxyproline and many more….

Cancer cells have altered metabolism and are known for their metabolic abnormalities. One example is the Warburg effect, in which there is increased glycolytic activity even in the presence of oxygen. Cancer cells depend on a high rate of aerobic glycolysis for continued growth and survival.

Because amino acids are the most highly consumed nutrients by cancer cells and biosynthetic pathways, they are always in demand for different cancer subtypes.

BioVision's metabolism assays enable rapid, homogenous and sensitive methods for the detection of a number of amino acids from a wide range of sample types.


Key Features:
• Non-radioactive
• Specific, homogeneous assay
• Convenient: minimal sample preparation; fast protocols (1-2 hours )
• Cost effective: 100 assays; High Throughput Screening compatible
• Validated: using mammalian tissues, cells, biological fluids
• The simplest, yet sensitive series of assays in the market!!!!

Description

K552: Aspartate Colorimetric/Fluorometric Assay Kit

In the assay, aspartate is converted to pyruvate which is oxidized with the conversion of a probe into a highly colored and fluorescent species proportional to the amount of aspartate.

K555: Hydroxyproline Colorimetric Assay Kit

BioVision’s Hydroxyproline Assay Kit is designed to measure hydroxyproline in tissue or protein/peptide hydrolysates.

K556: Glutamine Colorimetric Assay Kit

BioVision’s Glutamine Colorimetric Assay kit is a simple and sensitive assay that detects the biologically relevant concentrations of Glutamine (Gln) in various fluids and tissues.

K557: Tryptophan Assay Kit (Fluorometric)

BioVision’s Tryptophan Assay Kit provides a simple, sensitive, and high-throughput adaptable assay that detects tryptophan concentration in biological fluids, including free and bound tryptophan in serum.

K558: Cysteine Assay Kit (Fluorometric)

BioVision’s Cysteine Assay Kit provides a simple, sensitive, and high-throughput adaptable assay that detects physiological concentration of cysteine in a variety of biological fluids.

The assay is based on the enzymatic oxidation of Tyrosine producing a stable signal.

K589: Glycine Assay Kit (Fluorometric)

BioVision’s Glycine Assay Kit provides a simple, sensitive, and high-throughput adaptable assay that detects physiological concentration of glycine in a variety of biological fluids.

K629: Glutamate Colorimetric Assay Kit

BioVision’s Glutamate Assay Kit provides a sensitive detection method of the glutamate in a variety of samples.

K636: Sarcosine Colorimetric/Fluorometric Assay Kit

BioVision’s Sarcosine Assay Kit provides an accurate, convenient measure of sarcosine in variety biological samples.

K639: L-Amino Acid Quantitation Colorimetric/Fluorometric Kit

BioVision’s L-Amino Acid Assay Kit provides a convenient means for directly detecting L-amino acid in biological samples. Accurately quantitating L-amino acids in body fluids or purified samples may provide valuable information for diagnostic or basic research studies.

K652: Alanine Colorimetric/ Fluorometric Assay Kit

BioVision’s Alanine Assay Kit provides a sensitive detection method of alanine. In the kit, alanine is converted to pyruvate which is specifically detected leading to proportional color.
