Sarcosine is a natural amino acid that is present in muscles and other body tissues. Sarcosine acts as an intermediate and plays critical roles in the metabolism of methionine, glycine, serine, glutathione, choline, creatine and purine, etc. Detection of sarcosine level has wide significance in research and development.
The Sarcosine Colorimetric/Fluorometric Assay Kit provides a simple, fast and convenient way for accurate detection of sarcosine levels in various biological samples based on colorimetric and fluorometric method. In the assay, sarcosine is specifically oxidized to yield a product that converts a colorless sarcosine probe to a product with highly fluorescent (Ex/Em = 538/587 nm) and intense red color (λmax = 570 nm). Sarcosine can be easily detected with range of 1-10000 µM.
