Specifications

The Cholesterol/Cholesteryl Ester Quantitation Kit provides a simple method for sensitive quantification of free cholesterol, cholesteryl esters, or both by colorimetric or fluorometric methods. Majority of the cholesterol in blood is in the form of cholesteryl esters which can be hydrolyzed to cholesterol by cholesterol esterase. Cholesterol is then oxidized by cholesterol oxidase to yield H2O2, which reacts with a sensitive cholesterol probe to produce color ( max = 570nm) and fluorescence (Ex/Em = 535/587nm). The assay detects total cholesterol (cholesterol and cholesteryl esters) in the presence of cholesterol esterase, or free cholesterol in the absence of cholesterol esterase in the reaction. Cholesteryl ester can be determined by subtracting the value of free cholesterol from the total (cholesterol plus cholesteryl esters).
