ATP Assay Kit Price
Product Description: Intracellular ATP concentrations vary during cell growth and cell death. Notably, cells maintain a critical threshold of ATP
levels, which dictates whether apoptotic or necrotic cell death may take place in conditions of stress. Evaluation of cellular ATP levels may thus
provide useful information regarding the metabolic state and integrity of the cell. The enzyme luciferase catalyzes, in the presence of ATP, the
oxidation of luciferin with concomitant emission of yellow-green light, which can be conveniently measured by a luminometer or scintillation counter.
Light emission peaks in several seconds at 560 nm when the reaction is conducted at pH 7.8 (Anal. Biochem. 80:496,1977). The rapid appearance
and decay of the light flash requires consistent timing of the light measurement to obtain reliable data. This provides the basis for a sensitive non-
radioactive ATP assay system capable of detecting 0.1 uM or 1 picomole of ATP and more convenient than that based on HPLC. The kit is sufficient
for 200 assays using 0.1 ml of ATP Assay Solution per assay. The ATP Assay Solution if stored in aliquots at -80°C is stable for many years.
Repeated freeze-thaw cycles should be avoided.
