  • Includes both a glutathione and cysteine standard
  • Assay range: 15 nm to 1 µM
  • Plate-based fluorometric measurement (ex 380-390 nm, em 510-520 nm)
  • Assay 40 samples in duplicate
  • Measure free thiol content in plasma, serum, urine, cell lysates, and tissue homogenates

The detection and measurement of free thiols (i.e., free cysteine, glutathione, and cysteine residues on proteins) is one of the essential tasks for investigating biological processes and events in many biological systems. Cayman’s Thiol Detection Assay Kit provides a simple, reproducible, and sensitive tool for assaying free thiol content in samples (i.e., plasma, serum, tissue homogenates, cell lysates, and urine). The assay utilizes a proprietary fluorometric detector that reacts with thiol groups to emit a strong fluorescent signal which can be detected using excitation wavelengths between 380-390 nm and emission wavelengths between 510-520 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.
