Uric Acid Assay Kit
Uric acid is an end product of purine nucleotide metabolism in primate mammals, and is mainly excreted in urine. Serum uric acid concentrations are dependent upon the rate of uric acid produced and renal uric acid excretion. Hyperuricemia (elevated level of serum uric acid) induces or facilitates gout, kidney stones, metabolic syndrome, hypertension, and renal and cardiovascular disease Moreover, the serum UA level is considered to be a marker of oxidative stress. Eton’s Uric acid assay kit provides a reliable, simple, rapid, and suitable for either manual or automated procedures for quantifying uric acid in biological samples such as blood (serum and plasma), urine, etc. In the assay, uric acid is oxidized by enzyme reactions to yield color product, which can be measured at 570 nm for colorimetric assay, and the color intensity is proportional to uric acid contents, therefore the sample uric acid concentration can be accurately calculated based on the uric acid curve.
