Free Fatty Acid Measurement Kit

Fatty acidsare aliphatic monocarboxylic acids that are ubiquitously found in animal or vegetable fat, oil and wax. Fatty Acids play important roles in cellular synthesis, energy metabolism and are implicated in diverse disorders such as diabetes mellitus, sudden infant death syndrome and Reye Syndrome.

Assay Genie's free fatty acid measurement kit provides a simple, one-step and high-throughput assay for measuring free fatty acids. In this assay, free fatty acids are enzymatically converted to acyl-CoA and subsequently to HO. The resulting HO reacts with a specific dye to form a pink colored product. The optical density at 570nm or fluorescence intensity (530/585 nm) is directly proportional to the free fatty acid concentration in the sample.


For quantitative determination of fatty acid and evaluation of drug effects on its metabolism.

Key Features

  • Sensitive. Use 10 uL samples. Linear detection range: colorimetric assay 7 - 1000 uM, fluorimetric assay 7 - 100 uM fatty acid.
  • Convenient. Room temperature "mix-and-read" procedure can be readily automated for high-throughput assay of thousands of samples per day.
