Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) plays an important role in many biological processes. It is a potent anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral agent, and an immune stimulant and is present is a wide variety of foods and biological specimens. It is important to be able to monitor ascorbic acid content in these different samples. The Ascorbic Acid Assay Kit provides a rapid, simple, and sensitive means of detecting ascorbic acid in various biological samples. In this assay, our proprietary catalyst oxidizes ascorbic acid to produce a product that interacts with the ascorbic acid probe, generating color and fluorescence. Ascorbic acid can be easily determined by either colorimetric (spectrophotometry at lambda = 570nm) or fluorometric (Ex/Em = 535/587nm) methods. The assay can detect 0.01-10nmol of ascorbic acid per assay in various samples.
