Quantify Intracellular Lipid Accumulation
The AdipoRed™ Assay Reagent is designed for assessing the effect of compounds on the differentiation of preadipocytes or on lipid utilization in mature adipocytes. The lipophilic AdipoRed™ Assay Reagent specifically partitions into the fat droplets of differentiated adipocytes and fluoresces at 572 nm.
This objective, high-throughput, homogeneous fluorescence-based assay quantifies the accumulation of intracellular triglycerides and provides significant advantages to drug discovery efforts in the field of obesity and diabetes. It is more sensitive than other methods such as the Oil Red O assay, and is much faster and easier than Northern and Western blots.
