    Biochemical Assay (BCA)
    Sample Type
    Serum, Plasma
    Sensitive and accurate. Use as little as 10 L samples. Linear detection range 0.01 mmol/L to 1.0 mmol/L (0.88 mg/dL to 88.5 mg/dL) triglyceride.
    Simple and convenient. The procedure involves addition of a single working reagent and incubation for 30 min at room temperature, compatible for HTS assays.
    Improved reagent stability. The optimized formulation has greatly enhanced the reagent and signal stability.
    Assay Buffer: 24 mL. ATP: 250 L. Dye Reagent: 220 L. Enzyme Mix: 500 L. Lipase: 1000 L. Standard: 100 L (equivalent to 100 mmol/L Triglyceride).
    Material not included
    Pipeting devices, centrifuge tubes, clear flat bottom 96-well plates (e.g. Corning Costar) and plate reader.
  • Application Notes
    Direct Assays: triglyceride in biological samples (e.g. serum and plasma).
    Drug Discovery/Pharmacology: effects of drugs on triglyceride metabolism.
    Calculation of Results

    Subtract ODH2O (water, #4) from the standard OD values and plot the OD against standard concentrations.
    Conversions: 1 mmol/L triglyceride equals 88.5 mg/dL or 10 ppm.

    Quantitative determination of triglyceride by colorimetric (570nm) method.
    Procedure: 30 min.

    Triglyceride, also known as Triacyltriglyceride or Triacyl-Glyceride, is the main constituent in vegetable oil and animal fats. Triglycerides play an important role as energy sources and transporters of dietary fat. In the human body, high levels of triglycerides in the bloodstream have been linked to atherosclerosis, heart disease and pancreatitis. Simple, direct and automation-ready procedures for measuring triglyceride concentrations find wide applications in research and drug discovery. This triglyceride assay uses a single Working Reagent that combines triglyceride hydrolysis and glycerol determination in one step, in which a dye reagent is oxidized to form a colored product. The color intensity at 570nm is directly proportional to triglyceride concentration in the sample.
