Preclinical Chemistry Assays

Preclinical chemistry assays for metabolism and toxicity including AST, ALT, LDH, CK and more

Our MaxDiscovery Preclinical Chemistry Assays allow users to monitor preclinical chemistry markers of metabolism and in vivo toxicity in serum samples and are ideal for use during preclinical studies to monitor the effects caused by the administration of therapeutic treatments such as chemicals, siRNA, DNA plasmids, transfection agents or other pharmaceutical products.


These Preclinical Chemistry Assays can be used in a wide range of mammals, including mice and rats, providing a powerful tool to assess the toxicity and metabolism effects of drug formulations and the methods used for drug delivery.They also offer increased experimental continuity because multiple time points can more easily be taken from a single animal which saves money.

Aspartate Transaminase (AST) and Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH) Colour Endpoint Assays


The MaxDiscovery™ Aspartate Transaminase (AST) and Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH) Colour Endpoint Assays from Bioo Scientific allow the visible detection of in vivo toxicity using only 5 µL of serum from rodents or other mammals.


Employing simplified endpoint analysis these assays offer high sensitivity, low detection limits and of course the ability to use a visible plate reader.


Also both kits contain ready-to-use product standards for the development of standard curves and accurate calibration of the assay.


Lactate dehydrogenase assay

Most importantly for the LDH assay, unlike previous LDH tests, the MaxDiscovery™ LDH Color Endpoint Assay kit measures the direct chemical conversion of LDH and does not rely on coupled enzymatic amplification for its high precision, quantitative measurements.
