  • Measure triglycerides levels in plasma, serum, cell lysates, and tissue homogenates
  • Measure triglyceride concentrations from 0-200 mg/dl
  • Set up: 1 hour | Incubation: 15 min | Read: Colorimetric at 530-550 nm
  • Assay 26 samples in triplicate and 40 samples in duplicate
  • TG

The measurement of triglyceride levels, in conjunction with other lipid assays, are useful in the diagnosis of primary and secondary hyperlipoproteinemia, dyslipidemia, and triglyceridemia. Cayman’s Triglyceride Assay provides a simple, reproducible, and sensitive tool for assaying triglycerides in plasma and serum. The assay is initiated with the enzymatic hydrolysis of the triglycerides by lipase to produce glycerol and free fatty acids. The glycerol released is subsequently measured by a coupled enzymatic reaction system with a colorimetric readout at 540 nm.

Needed but not supplied: Please download the kit booklet to verify if UltraPure Water (Milli-Q or equivalent) or any other components are needed for this assay.
