Antioxidant Capacity Assay Kit
SOD Assay Kit
Superoxide dismutase(SOD) is an antioxidant enzyme that exists in the body and functions to eliminate the reactive oxygen species(ROS) superoxide(O2-).
This kit can easily measure SOD-Like activity using a 96-well microplate.
Applicable with a 96 well plate. Only 1 hour to complete the entire process.

DPPH Antioxidant Assay Kit
In recent years, it has been suggested that a decrease in the body’s antioxidant capacity is involved in the development of various diseases and health problems, and expectations for foods with antioxidant activity(antioxidant foods) are increasing. Kouchi University’s Shimamura et al. have developed DPPH to evaluate antioxidant activity with little difference between measurement facilities. A measurement method using (2,2-Diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl) has been reported1). This is a microplate evaluation based on the measurement method of Shimamura et al. by manualizing the DPPH measurement method and making a kit of stable and constant quality, we are able to reduce the data variability and complexity of reagent preparation, which has had issues until now.
This product was commercialized under the guidance of Prof. Tomoko Shimamura, Department of Agricultural Chemistry, Faculty of Agriculture, Forestry and Marine Science, Kochi University.

Significant reduction in reagent preparation time
Until now, it has been difficult to reproduce data between facilities and/or measurement days. This kit has the reproducibility of DPPH measurement possible by the quality of reagents used and convenient measurement and analysis technique.
|Stable Quality of Reagent|
|Optimized Measurement Condition|
This kit allows assay without influential factors.
|Analysis by Comparison using Trolox Standard|
Comparison with a Conventional Method
When measuring antioxidant activity with DPPH, the pH and solvent concentration in the solution affect the measurement.
This kit uses protocols and analysis methods to minimize these effects.
Effect of pH
Effect of sample solvent
After preparing the reagent, simply add the reagent and sample to the 96 well microplates and react for 30 minutes.

ACE Inhibition Activity Assay Kit
Studies have shown that the enzyme “ACE(Angiotensin-converting enzyme)” is greatly involved in hypertension disease. Foods that inhibit the action of ACE are considered functional foods that help suppress increases in blood pressure. Functional label food and food for specified health use have gained a lot of attention due to these studies. This kit can easily evaluate whether a food sample has the ability to lowering blood pressure.
|Easy for Beginners to Use|
|All in One|
|Screening for Multiple Samples|
※1) Required equipment and materials: Plate reader(450 nm filter), micropipette, multichannel pipette, incubator and syringe.
Add the sample and reagent to the plate, incubate(60 min, 10 min), and measure the absorbance.
