D-Lactate production in mammals, mainly due to the glyoxalase pathway, is extremely low,
with normal serum concentrations in the nano to micromolar range. Typically, elevated D-lactate
levels which can rise to millimolar levels, are due to bacterial infection or short bowel syndrome in humans. Abnormally high concentrations of D-lactate are considered indicative of sepsis, ischemia or trauma. Due to slow metabolism and excretion, high D-lactate can cause acidosis and encephalopathy.
Catalog #L1018-01
Intended UseThe D-Lactate Assay Kit provides a fast, easy way to accurately measure D-lactate in a variety of biological samples. In the D-Lactate Assay Kit, D-lactate is specifically oxidized by D-lactate dehydrogenase and generates proportional color (lambda-max = 450nm). The kit detects D-Lactate in samples such as serum, plasma, cells, culture and fermentation media. The useful concentration range in samples is 0.01mM--10mM Dlactate.
Kit ComponentsD-Lactate Assay Buffer 1x25ml
D-Lactate Enzyme Mix lyophilized
D-Lactate Substrate Mix lyophilized
D-Lactate Standard (100mM) 1x100ul.
Storage and StabilityStore the kit at -20°C. Stable for at least 6 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
