Triglyceride Assay Kit (Fluorometric, Reducing Samples) ab178780 is suitable for measuring triglyceride levels in samples which contain reducing substances that may interfere with oxidase-based assays such as Triglyceride Assay Kit (ab65336).
In this triglyceride assay protocol, triglycerides are hydrolyzed to glycerol and fatty acid. The glycerol reacts with Triglyceride Enzyme Mix to form an intermediate product which in turn reacts with the probe and developer to generate fluorescence (Ed/Em 535/587 nm). The generated fluorescence is directly proportional to the amount of triglycerides.
This assay is simple, sensitive and easy to use and is high-throughput (HTP) adaptable.
Triglyceride assay protocol summary:
- add samples and standards to wells
- add lipase and incubate for 20 min
- add reaction mix and incubate for 30 min
- analyze with a microplate reader.
This product is manufactured by BioVision, an Abcam company and was previously called K614 PicoProbe™ Triglyceride (TG) Fluorometric Assay Kit. K614-100 is the same size as the 100 test size of ab178780.

RelevanceTriglycerides are the main constituent of vegetable oil, animal fat, LDL and VLDL, and play an important role as transporters of fatty acids as well as serving as an energy source. Triglycerides are broken down into fatty acids and glycerol, after which both can serve as substrates for energy producing and metabolic pathways. High blood levels of triglycerides are implicated in atherosclerosis, heart disease and stroke as well as in pancreatitis.
