Metabolites are vital in biological organisms. Tens of thousands of metabolites are linked together to form metabolic pathways, which either use energy to synthesize molecules (anabolic pathway) or release energy to break down molecules (catabolic pathway) to maintain homeostasis. Imbalances to metabolites can be an indicator of diseases, such as cancer, diabetes, obesity, and neurodegeneration. Many pharmaceuticals are often designed to mimic metabolites and restore homeostasis.
Our assay kits are designed for your convenience and are available in a wide variety of formats and sizes, containing the necessary components and reagents for robust analysis. Since sample preparation is a critical first step in evaluating certain analytes, we offer several kits that allow researchers to extract and purify samples from various biological samples.
We offer metabolism assay kits with a variety of high-quality biochemical reagents for the quantification of metabolites and nutrients that serve as biomarkers during states of disease. We test each lot for system suitability. Most of our assay kits are suitable for high-throughput analysis and utilize spectrophotometric and/or fluorometric detection methods.
We also offer a wide variety of convenient kits and reagents for rapid and reliable enzymatic food analysis. The high specificity of our enzymes enables the analysis in complex sample matrixes without complicated sample preparation techniques.
