Sphingomyelin Colorimetric Assay Kit
Cayman Chemical Item Number 10009928
SM Assay Kit
Cayman’s sphingomyelin (SM) assay provides a specific, sensitive, and convenient method for quantifying SM in plasma or serum. In this assay, sphingomyelinase is first used to hydrolyze SM to phosphorylcholine and ceramide. Alkaline phosphatase then generates choline from the phosphorylcholine and the newly formed choline is used to generate hydrogen peroxide in a reaction catalyzed by choline oxidase. Finally, with peroxidase as a catalyst, hydrogen peroxide reacts with DAOS and 4-

Cayman Chemical was formed over thirty years ago by demonstrating the value of naturally growing gorgonian corals as a renewable, economically viable source of prostaglandins. Today we operate our business knowing that we owe our start to the renewable resources our environment had provided. As Cayman Chemical continues to grow we consistently evaluate our business processes to ensure we are operating at the highest environmental standards.
