NAD/NADH Assay Kit

Pyridine nucleotidesplay an important role in metabolism and, thus, there is continual interest in monitoring their concentration levels. Quantitative determination of NAD/NADH has applications in research pertaining to energy transformation and redox state of cells or tissue.

Assay Genies flurormetric NAD/NADH assay kit is based on a lactate dehydrogenase cycling reaction, in which the formed NADH reduces a probe into a highly fluorescent product. The fluorescence intensity of this product, measured at Ex/Em = 530/585 nm, is proportional to the NAD+/NADH concentration in the sample. This assay is highly specific for NAD+/NADH with minimal interference (<1%) by NADP+/NADPH and is a convenient method to measure NAD, NADH and their ratio.


Direct Assays: NAD+ /NADH concentrations and ratios in cell or tissue extracts.

Key Features

  • Sensitive and accurate. Detection limit of 0.02 uM and linearity up to 1 uM NAD+/NADH in 96-well plate assay.
  • Convenient. The procedure involves adding a single working reagent, and reading the fluorescence at time zero and 10 min.
  • High-throughput. Can be readily automated as a high-throughput 96-well plate assay for thousands of samples per day.
