  • 产品概述

    Abcam's Nitric Oxide Assay Kit (Colorimetric) provides an accurate, convenient measure of total nitrate/nitrite in a simple two-step process. The first step converts nitrate to nitrite utilizing nitrate reductase. The second step uses Griess Reagents to convert nitrite to a deep purple azo compound. The amount of the azochromophore accurately reflects nitric oxide amount in samples.

  • 说明

    Nitric oxide (NO) plays an important role in neurotransmission, vascular regulation, immune response and apoptosis. NO is rapidly oxidized to nitrite and nitrate which are used to quantitate NO production.

    Nitric oxide (NO) is a key vertebrate biological messenger, playing an important role in neurotransmission, vascular regulation, immune responses and apoptosis. NO , also known as "endothelium-derived relaxing factor" or "EDRF", is synthesized from L-arginine, oxygen and NADPH by various NO synthases. Most of the NO in the cell is oxidized to nitrite (NO2-) and nitrate (NO3-), and therefore the concentrations of these anions are generally as a quantitative measure of NO production.


Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab65328 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Merci pour votre patience.

Le laboratoire vient de me confirmer que le NO est stable et que les échantillons de surnagéant aussi peuvent donc être conservées en aliquots à-20°C ou -80°C.

Thank you for contacting us. The Fluorometric assay kit ab65327 is much more sensitive (about 10x) than kit ab65328 (colorimetric assay kit). For ab65328 (colorimetric): The absorbance of samples should be in the linear range of the stan...

Thank you for your enquiry. This kit will be compatible with MEM with phenol red. Media that contain phenol red as a pH indicator do not interfere with the Griess reaction as the indicator is typically yellow colored under the conditions of the Gri...

Overall the test worked well for us. All of the required information was included, but the way that the steps were structured was awkward at times. This made the protocol difficult to follow.
Specifically, the section describing how to deproteinize your sample (step 11.4.4 in protocol booklet). An online protocol is also available from abcam, and was a little more clear ( It would be nice if these protocols were updated to be more clear and uniform across abcam.

fter adding Griess Reagent R2 in standard and unknown leave it for 10 minutes at room temperature. The color developed will be stable for an hour.

I used this kit to measure nitric oxide (nitrate and nitrite combined) in the plasma of adult male red-winged blackbirds (Agelaius phoeniceus) housed in an outdoor aviary. Preliminary data suggests that the assay requires a minimum of 15uL of plasma per well (ie, 30uL plasma to run in duplicate) to produce repeatable results. Thus far, we have found birds to have levels of NOx between 14-250 uM. It appears that birds with an active infection could have elevated NOx.
Preliminary data also suggests that error can be easily introduced when ready-ing the samples for the assay by deproteinating plasma with PCA. I suspect that this is particularly problematic for samples with absorbance reading less than 0.2, but we need more evidence to be certain.
I did notice that the instructions on the web site were not the same as in the booklet sent. In the booklet I received, the instructions said to use the plate reader after adding the second Griess reagent with no wait time listed. On the online book an incubation time was listed (10 min). There were also inconsistencies in the the list of reagents provided and what was actually provided (We got plates, which is great!). The plates were labeled with a store in -20C, even though they're just plastic plates that isn't necessary.
Technical support was very helpful in answering questions quickly whenever I called - was really happy with the support.

Yes, heparin should be fine to use with ab65328 and ab118970.

Standard amounts of salts, Triton and protease inhibitors should be alright. We have not tested this kit’s function using high salt/detergent but theoretically small amounts of these should not interfere with the assay.

This kit does not include a step to remove proteins. Depending on your sample type, it is however recommended to use 10kD spin columns (ab93349) to deproteinate your samples.

For example, it is recommended for serum samples since there a...
