Lipase Assay Kit II (Colorimetric) (ab102525) provides a simple, sensitive, and reliable assay for rapid analysis of Lipase activity.
In the lipase assay, Lipases hydrolyze a specific substrate to generate a product which reacts with the DTNB probe to generate color (Absorbance=412 nm). This kit is suitable for high throughput analysis (HTP).
Lipase assay protocol summary:
- add samples and standards to wells
- add reaction mix
- analyze with a microplate reader at 3 min and at between 60 and 90 min
This product is manufactured by BioVision, an Abcam company and was previously called K723 Lipase Activity Colorimetric Assay Kit II. K723-100 is the same size as the 100 test size of ab102525.
Storage instructionsStore at -20°C. Please refer to protocols.

RelevanceLipases perform essential roles in the digestion, transport and processing of dietary lipids (e.g. fats and oils) in living organisms. In humans, pancreatic lipase is the key enzyme responsible for breaking down fats in the digestive system by converting triglyceride to monoglyceride and free fatty acid. Pancreatic lipase monitoring is also used to help diagnose Crohn's disease, cystic fibrosis and celiac disease. Damage to the pancreas can exhibit a 5-10 fold increase of serum lipase levels within 24 to 48 hours.
