AnaSpec Develops Industry’s Only HTS Assay Kits for Screening HCV NS3/4A
July 07, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsAnaSpec has developed the industry’s only HTS assay kits for screening HCV NS3/4a. EnzoLyteTM assay kits are specifically designed for the detection and quantification of NS3/4A protease activity at subnanomolar concentrations. They can be used in 96- or 384-well microplate format. There are three assay kits to choose from depending on what wavelength is used for monitoring the cleavage of the FRET substrate. Convenient mix-and-read format and one-step procedure make EnzoLyte Assay Kits ideal for high-throughput screening.
EnzoLyteTM 490 HCV Assay Kit
Peptide substrate paired with Dabcyl (fluorophore) and Edans (quencher). Fluorescence can be continuously monitored at Ex/Em=340/490nm. Kit size: 500 assays.
EnzoLyteTM 520 HCV Assay Kit
Peptide substrate paired with 5-FAM (fluorophore) and QXLTM 520 (quencher). Fluorescence can be continuously monitored at Ex/Em=490/520 nm. Kit size: 100 assays.
EnzoLyteTM 620 HCV Assay Kit
Peptide substrate paired with HiLyte FluorTM TR (fluorophore) and QXLTM 610 (quencher). With near red emission wavelength, this FRET peptide avoids the autofluorescence interference associated with most test compounds. Fluorescence can be continuously monitored at Ex/Em=590/620nm. Kit size: 100 assays.
