Flexible Throughput and Process
The Glutamate-Glo™ Assay is a versatile system that is amenable to high-throughput formats and compatible with many sample types. Samples may require upfront sample processing, including dilutions, to fit into the linear range of the assay. They may also require inactivation of endogenous enzyme activity/deproteinization and NAD(P)H degradation (recommendations in technical manual). To simplify sample processing, methods for rapid enzyme inactivation and NAD(P)H degradation are provided that are compatible with 96- and 384-well plates and do not require sample centrifugation or spin columns.
Quickly Measure Metabolites in a Variety of Sample Types: Measure in media, cells, tissue and plasma. The assays require minimal preparation steps with no need for centrifugation and spin columns.
Conduct easy in-well processing for intracellular detection.
Measure Across a Wide Range of Concentrations: Broad linearity up to 3 logs enables simple sample measurement.
Detect Small Changes: Wide assay window with S/Bmax > 100 allows better discrimination of small changes in metabolite levels compared to colorimetric and fluorometric assays.
Gain More Information Per Sample: The assays are amenable to measuring multiple metabolites from the same sample. Multiplex with cell viability assays for normalization.
