Lipids are essential components of cell membranes. Synthetic lipids or lipids isolated from the nature are used for constructions of bilayer membranes for various applications such as membrane protein reconstitution and liposomal drug formulations. The MicroGram Lipid Assay Kit (Catalog number LIP1000) is designed for measurement of various lipids at concentrations of micrograms per milliliter. The assay is based on measurement of fluorescence at 465 nm (excitation at 360 nm). It can be used to measure concentrations of various purified lipids or lipid mixtures such as cell membrane lipids or liposomes.
The MicroGram Lipid Assay Kit (Catalog number LIP1000) includes 0.1 ml of 1000 x LIP 10 Dye. It is for measurement of 1000 samples using 96-well plates. Cuvettes may also be used for measurements.
