Trolox is a water-soluble analog of tocopherol (Vitamin E) which is a very strong antioxidant, commonly used to measure antioxidant capacity. Vitamin E is present in biological samples, like plasma, and food samples as a natural component of fruit and vegetables.
Use this standard with colorimetric assay kits or to compare the BQC electrochemical devices results (µC) to classical antioxidant capacity units of Vitamin E/TROLOX Antioxidant Capacity Equivalents (TEAC).
- When the TROLOX is order for the BRS in agri-food samples, BRS electrolyte is included to perform the calibration curve.
- When the TROLOX is order for the BRS in biomedical samples, PB (phosphate buffer) is included to perform the calibration curve.
