Aplicação

3,3′,5,5′-Tetramethylbenzidine has been used:
  • as a supplement in Man-Rodosa-Sharpe (MRS) agar plate, to stains the lactobacilli colonies blue in the presence of O2
  • as a substrate solution for ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay)
  • in myeloperoxidase activity assay to quantify neutrophil

3,3′,5,5′-Tetramethylbenzidine (TMB) is a noncarcinogenic substitute (Ames test negative) for benzidine suitable as peroxidase substrate for use in ELISA procedures. The substrate produces a soluble end product that is pale blue in color and can be read spectrophotometrically at 370 or 620-650 nm. The TMB reaction may be stopped with 2 M H2SO4 (resulting in a yellow color), and read at 450 nm. A sensitive and specific reagent for the detection of blood, assay of hemoglobin, assay of peroxidases.
