Product Details

The OxiSelect™ Methylglyoxal (MG) ELISA Kit is an enzyme immunoassay developed for rapid detection and quantitation of MG-H1 (methyl-glyoxal-hydro-imidazolone) protein adducts.  The quantity of MG adduct in protein samples is determined by comparing its absorbance with that of a known MG-BSA standard curve.  Each kit provides sufficient reagents to perform up to 96 assays, including standard curve and unknown protein samples.
