Product Summary
The Parameter TBARS assay is a 2-3 hour chemical analysis designed to measure TBARS in cell culture supernates, cell lysates, serum, plasma, and urine.

Intra-Assay Precision (Precision within an assay) Three samples of known concentration were tested on one plate to assess intra-assay precision.
Inter-Assay Precision (Precision between assays) Three samples of known concentration were tested in separate assays to assess inter-assay precision.

The recovery of MDA spiked to levels throughout the range of the assay in various matrices was evaluated.

Sample Type Average % Recovery Range %
Cell Culture Media (n=4) 101 94-110
Cell Lysis Buffer 3 (n=1) 99 96-103
EDTA Plasma (n=4) 91 89-106
Heparin Plasma (n=4) 99 94-108
Serum (n=4) 98 87-105
Urine (n=4) 99 91-106
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples were spiked with high concentrations of MDA, acid treated, and serially diluted with deionized water to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

Assay Procedure
Refer to the product for complete assay procedure.

Bring all reagents and samples to room temperature before use. It is recommended that all samples, standards, and controls be assayed in duplicate.
  1.   Prepare all reagents, TBARS standard, and samples as directed in the product insert.
  2.   Remove excess microplate strips from the plate frame, return them to the foil pouch containing the desiccant pack, and reseal.

  3. 150 µL Standards and Samples
  4.   Add 150 µL of standards and samples to each well.

  5. 75 µL TBA Reagent
  6.   Add 75 µL of TBA Reagent to each well.
  7.   Pre-read the optical density of each well using a microplate reader set to 532 nm.
  8.   Incubate the microplate for 2-3 hours at 45-50 °C.
  9.   Read the optical density of each well using a microplate reader set to 532 nm. Subtract the pre-reading from the final reading to correct for the sample's contributions to the final absorption at 532 nm.
