Product nameHexanoyl glycine, Acyl amino acid derivative
DescriptionAcyl amino acid derivative.
Acyl amino acid derivative used as a urinary biomarker for several indications. Increased urinary excretion of hexanoyl glycine in humans is indicative of a deficiency in medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase. Increased urinary hexanoyl glycine can also be used as a biomarker for exposure to gamma radiation.
Storage instructionsStore at +4°C. The product can be stored for up to 12 months.
Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20°C. Generally, these will be useable for up to one month. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.
