Microplate Nitrate Testing for Your Laboratory
Accurate, Economical, Safe, and Environmentally Benign Nitrate Analysis
Use this kit for detection of nitrate in water, plant tissues, soils, and foods. All reaction steps occur on a 96-well microplate. This test kit is based on the enzyme Nitrate Reductase (NaR), catalyzing the reduction of nitrate to nitrite using the natural electron donor NADH. The nitrite reacts with color reagents under acidic conditions to produce a visible color. The concentration of nitrate in the original sample is determined by measuring absorbance with a microplate reader using a 540 nm filter, versus nitrate concentration in nitrate standards.
You will need variable pipetters, a 25mL graduated cylinder, a vortex-type mixer, a microplate mixer, a microplate reader or photometer for reading absorbance at 540 nm± 20 nm, clean and nitrate-free test tubes, a timer, reagent grade water, and concentrated HCl.
