In Abcam's LDH Assay Kit (Colorimetric), LDH reduces NAD to NADH, which then interacts with a specific probe to produce a color (λmax = 450 nm). The kit quantifies LDH activity in variety of biological samples such as in serum or plasma, cells, culture medium and fermentation, etc. The assay is quick, convenient, and sensitive.
Store kit unopened at at -20C. Once opened and the substrate mix and standard components are reconstituted, the solutions are stable at 4C for 1 week or at -20C for 1 month.

As LDH is a fairly stable enzyme, LDH has been widely used to evaluate the presence of damage and toxicity of tissue and cells. Quantification of LDH has broad range of applications. The kit can detect 1-100 mU/ml of LDH directly in samples.
