Hepatic Steatosis Assay Kit
Simple method for a colorimetric/fluorometric dual measurement of intracellular triglyceride accumulation and lipid droplet formation in hepatocytes.
PromoCell’s Hepatic Steatosis Assay Kit provides reagents for measurement of intracellular triglyceride accumulation and staining reagents to visualize the lipid droplet formation in hepatocytes. The kit can be used to screen and evaluate steatosis risk of drug candidates and to study the mechanism of steatosis development. Chloroquine is included as a positive control for inducing steatosis in liver cells, such as HepG2. The kit provides sufficient reagents for 100 triglyceride quantitation assays as well as staining reagents sufficient for two 96-well plates, two 6-well plates, or four 100 mm culture dishes.
