General description

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.

Features and Benefits

Compatible with high-throughput handling systems.

Suitability

Suitable for D-lactate in serum, plasma, and cell media samples.

Principle

The D-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. 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.
