Product Details

The Free Fatty Acid Assay Kit contains a palmitic acid standard and is a simple assay that quantitatively measures the free fatty acid (FFA) concentration (non-esterified) in various samples using a 96-well microtiter plate format. Each kit provides sufficient reagents to perform up to 100 assays, including blanks, standards and unknown samples.
