      Detection principle

      The activity of SOD was measured by WST-1 method in this kit and the principles of the WST-1 is as follows. Xanthine Oxidase (XO) can catalyze WST-1 react with O2.- to generate a water-soluble formazan dye. SOD can catalyze the disproportionation of superoxide anions, so the reaction can be inhibited by SOD, and the activity of SOD is negatively correlated with the amount of formazan dye. Therefore, the activity of SOD can be determined by the colorimetric analysis of WST-1 products.

      Dilution of sample

      The optimal sampling volume are different for different species, the SOD also are different for different samples. It is recommended to take 2~3 samples to do a pre-experiment, diluting a series of diluent and determine the dilution factor when the SOD inhibition ratio is 25%~65% (the optimal inhibition ratio is the range of 40%~60%.) before formal experiment.

      The recommended dilution factor for different samples is as follows (for reference only):

      Sample type

      Dilution factor

      • Application:Biochemical
      • Description:This kit has few sampling procedures, convenient operation, reasonable detection time, and the experimental results are clear and accurate, but the inhibition rate of this kit is difficult to grasp. When the dilution multiple of some samples reaches, the other part is on the high side or on the low side. If there are ways to improve or replace in this respect, the kit will be perfect.
