Aldehyde Assay Kit (Colorimetric)

To determine the amount of aldehydes in various biological samples.
MILPITAS, Calif. - Aug. 9, 2021 - PRLog -- Aldehydes are organic compounds that occur in both natural products and are also industrially manufactured. Aldehydes are present in many fragrances, resins and are also used as solvents and intermediates in the production of dyes and pharmaceuticals. Additionally, aldehydes such as vitamin A aldehyde, glucose and other reducing sugars, etc. play an important role in various physiological processes and are substrates for aldehyde dehydrogenases, which metabolize aldehydes in the body.

However, they are also implicated as environmental pollutants and causes of cancer, neurodegeneration, DNA damage etc. In summary, aldehydes are important in food and chemical industry, biological and chemical research, monitoring environmental pollution etc.

BioVision's Aldehyde Assay Kit provides a facile, rapid way to determine the amount of aldehydes in various biological samples. In this kit, aldehyde reacts with the aldehyde indicator to generate an intermediate product, which then interacts with the aldehyde developer to generate a colored signal measured at 530 nm.

The intensity of the color is proportional to the amount of aldehydes present in the samples. The assay is simple, sensitive, and can measure aldehyde levels below 2 nmol under the assay conditions.
