FEATURED Assay Kits - MaxDiscovery AST Assays


The MaxDiscovery™ Aspartate Transaminase (AST) Cytotoxicity Kit is a plate-based colorimetric enzymatic assay for the determination of the aspartate transaminase enzyme in cultured cell lines.


Aspartate transaminase (AST) also known as aspartate aminotransferase or (sGOT) is a metabolic enzyme expressed in a host of mammalian cell types. Upon cell damage or lysis the enzyme is released into the cell culture supernatant and is thus a useful tool for the investigation of cytotoxicity effects of experimental drug formulations and cell transfection.


The MaxDiscovery™ Aspartate Transaminase (AST) Cytotoxicity Kit has the capacity for 192 determinations or testing of 84 samples in duplicate (using 12 wells for standards).
