The CHEMICON uPA Activity Assay Kit provides a quick, efficient and sensitive system for evaluation of uPA activity and for screening of uPA inhibitors. The assay is colorimetric and does not require radioactivity or fluorescence equipment. The assay is sensitive over a range of 0.05-50 units of uPA activity.
The CHEMICON uPA Activity Assay Kit utilizes a chromogenic substrate, which is cleaved by active uPA. Addition of this substrate to a uPA-containing sample results in a colored product, detectable by its Optical Density at 405nm (OD405).
The CHEMICON uPA Assay Kit is ideal for measurement of uPA activity in purified preparations and cell culture, as well as in serum where pathological conditions such as sepsis exist. The assay is also useful for screening inhibitors of the enzymatic activity of uPA.
The CHEMICON uPA Activity Assay Kit is intended for research use only; not for diagnostic or therapeutic applications.
