EnzyChrom™ D-Lactate Assay Kit

For quantitative determination of D-lactate (D-lactic acid) and evaluation of drug effects on its metabolism.

• Sensitive and accurate. Detection limit of 0.05 mM and linearity up to 2 mM D-lactate in 96-well plate assay. For cell culture samples containing phenol red: detection limit of 0.1 mM and linearity up to 1 mM D-lactate in 96-well plate assay.

• Convenient. The procedure involves adding a single working reagent, and reading the optical density at time zero and at 20 min. Room temperature assay. No 37°C heater is needed. 

• High-throughput. Can be readily automated as a high-throughput 96-well plate assay for thousands of samples per day.

Lactate is generated by lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) under hypoxic or anaerobic conditions. Monitoring lactate levels is, therefore, a good indicator of the balance between tissue oxygen demand and utilization and is useful when studying cellular and animal physiology. D-lactate is produced in only minor quantities in animals and measuring for D-lactate in animal samples is a means to determine the presence of bacterial infection. Simple, direct and automation-ready procedures for measuring lactate concentration are very desirable. BioAssay Systems’ EnzyChrom™ lactate assay kit is based on lactate dehydrogenase catalyzed oxidation of lactate, in which the formed NADH reduces a formazan (MTT) Reagent. The intensity of the product color, measured at 565 nm, is proportionate to the lactate concentration in the sample.
