    Free Fatty Acid Quantification Assay Kit ab65341 provides a convenient, sensitive enzyme-based method for detecting long-chain free fatty acids (FA) in various mammalian and other samples, such as serum, plasma and other body fluids, food, growth media, etc.

    In this assay, FA are converted to their CoA derivatives (coenzyme A), which are subsequently oxidized, leading to formation of color/ fluorescence. Fatty acids can then be easily quantified by either colorimetric (spectrophotometry at λ= 570 nm) or fluorometric (at Ex/Em= 535/587 nm)

  • 说明

    This assay detects formation of C-8 (octanoate) and longer fatty acids.



  • Plasma FFA levels was measured using ab65341 in male and female wild-type (WT) or AT2KO mice either on normal diet (ND) or high fat diet (HFD).

  • Colorimetric standard curve: mean of duplicates (+/-SD) with background readings subtracted.

  • Free Fatty Acid measured in biologicals showing concentration (µM)

  • Flourometric standard curve: mean of duplicates (+/-SD) with background readings subtracted.

Unfortunately, the assay buffers in both kits have different components and pH. Therefore they cannot be used interchangeably.

I'm afraid the exact details of the mechanism are proprietary, however we do have this description as noted in the Protocol Booklet:
"In the assay, Fatty Acids are converted to their CoA derivatives,
which are subsequently oxidized with ...

Repeating in triplicate certainly reduces the margin of error in any reading, however you should be able to produce a linear curve using the protocol found in the kit booklet.

The kit should be able to detect fatty acids of chain lengths between C8 and above with equal efficiency and you should therefore not need to perform a different standard for the caprylic acid and palmitic.

I can now confirm that no cross reactivity would be expected with the Free Fatty Acid Quantification Kit (ab65341) with lechitins, phosphoatidyl choline or other triglycerides. This kit is specific for free fatty acids and would require an enzyme to co...

Yes, these kits are suitable for all mammalians.

If your sample reading was 2.5 nmol of fatty acid, and you used 6uL of serum per well, the calculations would be as follows: (2.5 nmol / 6uL) * (256 ng / nmol) = 106.67 ng / uL = 106.67 * (10-9 g / 10-6 L) = (106.67 / 10) (10-3 g / 10-1 L) = 10.667 mg/dL

The standard wells contain 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 nmol per well. The molecular weight of the standard, palmitic acid, is 256 g/mol, or 256 ng/nmol. so each standard well contains, in micrograms: 0, 0.51, 1.02, 1.54, 2.05, 2.56 After subtracting the op...

Here is what the lab is suggesting: Serum samples can be tested directly in the following manner: For testing liquid samples, different volume of samples can be directly added to each well in a 96-well plate, then bring up the volume to 50 µl/well ...

I have contacted the lab and advice that after pelleting the cells by trypsinization you follow these steps: 106 cells or 10 mg tissue samples can be extracted by homogenization with 200 µl of chloroform-Triton X-100 (1% Triton X-100 in pure chloroform...
