General description

Aldehydes are highly reactive molecules, which play a role in many physiological, pathological and commercial processes. They have been implicated as environmental pollutants and in neurodegeneration and DNA damage. A method for rapid and accurate measurement of aldehydes is an important tool for biological and chemical research, the food industry and environmental pollution surveillance.
Aldehydes are highly reactive molecules, which play a role in many physiological, pathological and commercial processes. They have been implicated as environmental pollutants, and in neurodegeneration and DNA damage. A method for rapid and accurate measurement of aldehydes is an important tool for biological and chemical research, the food industry, and environmental pollution surveillance.

The Fluorometric Aldehyde Assay Kit provides a simple and direct procedure for measuring aldehydes in samples in which the pH is physiological and higher. Aldehyde reacts with a fluorogenic dye, resulting in a fluorometric (λex = 365/λem = 435 nm) product proportional to the amount of aldehydes present. The Fluorometric Aldehyde Assay Kit has a lower limit of detection of 0.3 nanomole of aldehyde in a 100 μL assay volume (3 μM).

Suitability

This kit is suitable for the detection of aldehydes in a variety of samples, particularly when the samples are at a higher pH. When working with samples in a low pH, product number MAK140, Colorimetric Aldehyde Assay, is more suitable.
