- Sensitive, Quantitative Assay for Hydrogen Peroxide
- Detects as Little as 15ng/ml
- Easy-to-use, Colorimetric System
Hydrogen peroxide is a part of the oxygen reduction pathway,
produced by the two-electron reduction of molecular oxygen, or by
the one electron reduction of superoxide anion radical. Hydrogen
peroxide is a potent oxidant, and the levels of hydrogen peroxide
must be accurately determined in order to fully characterize the
oxidative state of the system under study.
National Diagnostics Hydrogen Peroxide Assay Kit is a rapid,
sensitive and quantitative method for the determination of Hydrogen
Peroxide in chemical or biological systems. The assay is based upon
formation of a complex between Xylenol Orange and ferric iron, which
is produced by the peroxide dependent oxidation of ferrous iron.
This reaction is quantifi ed colorimetrically, detecting as little
as 15ng/ml of peroxide.
National Diagnostics Hydrogen Peroxide Assay is the ideal complement
to our well established Diogenes Superoxide detection system. Using
these kits in tandem, researchers can now quantitatively determine
the first two steps in the oxygen reduction pathway.
