Triglyceride Quantification Assay Kit (ab65336) provides a sensitive, easy assay to measure triglyceride (TG) concentration in a variety of samples. In the assay, TG are converted to free fatty acids and glycerol. The glycerol is then oxidized to generate a product which reacts with the probe to generate color (spectrophotometry at λ= 570 nm) and fluorescence (Ex/Em = 535/587 nm).
If your sample contains reducing substances such as glucose, fructose or lactose, they are likely to interfere with the assay. In this case, we recommend to use PicoProbe Triglyceride Quantification Assay Kit (Fluorometric) (ab178780).

This kit also detects monoglycerides and diglycerides.
Some components of this kit are available for purchasing as standalone reagents if you need more quantities (lipase, enzyme mix, TG standard or TG probe). Please contact our team for more details.

Triglyceride measured in cell culture lysates showing quantity (nmol) per 1 mln cells.
Samples with the concentration of 1e7 cells/mL were used. Samples were diluted 40-80 fold and measured fluorometrically.
HepG2 cells were treated with 25 uM Chloroquine for 72h.
