KF01001 | DMPD Assay Kit | Antioxidant Capacity

189.00451.00 TAX excl.

BQC DMPD Antioxidant Capacity Assay Kit is an easy and quick assay to measure TAC in beverages, food samples and plant extracts.

This TAC Assay Kit is based on the N,N-dimethyl-ρ-phenylenediamine (DMPD) method. In this method, the DMPD radical (DMPD•+) which is a purple colored (λmax = 533 nm) stable cation radical, is reduced by hydrogen-donating antioxidants to the colorless DMPD reduced form.
