Ammonia Assay Kit (ab83360) provides a rapid, simple, sensitive, and reliable assay suitable for research and high throughput assay of Ammonia or Ammonium. In the assay, Ammonia or Ammonium is converted to a product that reacts with the OxiRed probe to generate color (?max = 570 nm) which can be easily quantified by plate reader. The kit can detect 1 nmol (~20 µM) of ammonia or ammonium, much more sensitive than measuring NADPH based ammonia assay.

Ammonia is an important source of nitrogen for living systems. Nitrogen is required for the synthesis of amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein. Ammonia is a metabolic product which is created through amino acid deamination. It plays an important role in both normal and abnormal animal physiology such as acid/base balance.
