ABEL® Antioxidant Test Kit for Singlet Oxygen with Special Pholasin®

ABEL® Antioxidant Test Kit for Singlet Oxygen with Special Pholasin®

Additional Information

The kit contains the unique protein Pholasin® that emits light in the presence of free radicals such as singlet oxygen, produced using reagents included in the kit. Antioxidants in the sample will compete with Pholasin® for singlet oxygen, thereby reducing the light emission. The antioxidant capacity of the sample tested is expressed as the percentage reduction in peak light emission compared with controls. It is an excellent mens to determine the suitablility of materials as antioxidants with the potential to prevent lipid oxidation resulting fom singlet oxygen attack. This is also benificial in the context of edible oils.
