Hydrogen Peroxide Assay Kit ab102500 is a highly sensitive, simple, direct and HTS-ready colorimetric and fluorometric assay for measuring H2O2 in biological samples.
In the hydrogen peroxide assay protocol, horse radish peroxidase (HRP) reacts with a probe and H2O2 to produce a product with color (λmax = 570 nm) and red-fluorescence (Ex/Em=535/587 nm).
The detection limit is 2 pmol per assay (or 40 nM concentration) of H2O2 in the sensitive fluorometric assay.
Hydrogen peroxide assay protocol summary:
- add standards and samples to wells
- add reaction mix and incubate for 10 min
- analyze with microplate reader
The kit can perform 200 reactions by fluorometric method or 100 reactions by colorimetric method.
Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) is a reactive oxygen metabolic byproduct that serves as a key regulator for a number of oxidative stress-related states. Functioning through NF-kappaB and other factors, hydroperoxide-mediated pathways have been linked to asthma, inflammatory arthritis, atherosclerosis, diabetic vasculopathy, osteoporosis, neuro-degenerative diseases, Down's syndrome and immune system diseases.

RelevanceHydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) is a reactive oxygen metabolic byproduct that serves as a key regulator for a number of oxidative stress-related states. Functioning through NF-kB and other factors, hydroperoxide-mediated pathways have been linked to asthma, inflammatory arthritis, atherosclerosis, diabetic vasculopathy, osteoporosis, neuro-degenerative diseases, Down’s syndrome and immune system diseases.
H2O2 neutralization of of Bursaphelenchus sp. isolates (high virulence B. xylophilus Ka4 and B. xylophilus T4, and low virulence B. xylophilus C14-5 and B. mucronatus Un1) after 24 hours exposition to H2O2.
Error bars represent standard deviation. Different letters above the columns indicate significant differences (p < 0.05) between Bursaphelenchus sp. isolates H2O2 neutralization, according to post-hoc Duncan's test.
