Product Details

Cell Biolabs’ Serum Triglyceride Quantification Kits measure triglyceride concentrations in serum, plasma, and lysates by a coupled enzymatic reaction system.  First, lipase hydrolyzes the triglyceride ester bond, yielding glycerol.  The free glycerol is then phosphorylated and oxidized, producing hydrogen peroxide which reacts with the kit’s probe.
