D-Lactate & L-Lactate Assay Kits
Monitoring lactate levels is a good indicator of the balance between tissue oxygen demand and utilization.
Its useful when studying cellular and animal physiology. Lactic acidosis, an excessive buildup of lactate in the body, commonly occurs during intense exercise, but can also result from certain disease states such as sepsis, respiratory failure, diabetes and kidney failure. Cayman now offers two new fluorescent-based assay kits to detect the major and minor stereoisomers of lactate, D-Lactate Assay Kit
and L-Lactate Assay Kit
, respectively. These kits can be used with biological samples such as serum, plasma, blood, urine, and saliva. They can also be utilized to determine intracellular and extracellular lactate concentrations in cell culture samples.
