Details

Peroxidases (EC number 1.11.1.x) are a large family of enzymes that typically catalyze a reaction of the form: ROOR' + electron donor (2 e-) + 2H+ → ROH + R'OH. For many of these enzymes the optimal substrate is hydrogen peroxide, but others are more active with organic hydroperoxides such as lipid peroxides. Peroxidases can contain a heme cofactor in their active sites, or alternately redox-active cysteine or selenocysteine residues. BioVision’s Peroxidase Assay Kit provides a convenient colorimetric and fluorometric means to measure the peroxidase activity in biological samples. In the presence of Peroxidase, the OxiRed Probe reacts with H2O2 in a 1:1 stoichiometry to produce the red-fluorescent oxidation product, resorufin. The resorufin is quantified by colorimetric (lmax = 570nm) or fluorometric methods (Ex/Em = 535/587 nm). The assay is simple, direct, highly sensitive and high throughput-ready. The detection limit is 0.1 mU per well via colorimetric or 0.01 mU per well via fluorometric method, based on our unit definition.

Can we use frozen samples with this assay?
We would recommend using fresh samples. However, frozen samples can be used too provided they have not undergone multiple freeze thaw cycles.
Can the kit work on bacteria or yeast cells?
The kit has been standardized for mammalian cells only.
What is the exact volume of sample required for this assay?
There is no specific volume we can recommend for the amount any sample to be used since it is completely sample concentration and quality based. You have to do a pilot expt with multiple sample volumes to determine the optimal volume which gives a reading within the linear range of the standard curve. Please refer to the citations for this product to see what other clients have used with similar sample types.
Do you have trial sizes of this kit?
Unfortunately, we do not have trial sizes of this kit available. However, if you are based in the US or Canada, we will give you a 10% off list price introductory discount on its purchase price. If you are based out of this area please contact your regional BioVision distributor.
What is the shelf life of this kit?
BioVisions’s assay kits expire 6-12 months from the date of shipment. Some components of the kit may expire sooner as mentioned in the data sheet.
Can we purchase individual components of this kit?
Yes, you can purchase any of the kit's components without the whole kit. Please refer to the component Cat #s mentioned on the datasheet for ordering.
Can we use an alternate buffer for sample preparation (cell lysis, sample dilutions etc)?
Our assay buffers are optimized for the reactions they are designed for. They not only contain some detergents for efficient lysis of your cells/tissue, but also contain some proprietary components required for the further reactions. Therefore, we highly recommend using the buffers provided in the kit for the best results.
