General description

Formaldehyde is widely employed in industry for a wide range of applications. It acts as a disinfectant and biocide, and is utilized as a tissue fixative and embalming agent. Formaldehyde is a key metabolite produced during normal metabolism and contributes to methylation reactions and protein and nucleic acid synthesis. Increased production of formaldehyde has been observed in many cancer cell lines and increased formaldehyde concentration in urine has been associated with bladder and prostrate cancer.

Features and Benefits

Compatible with high-throughput handling systems. Can be adapted for use with cuvettes.

Suitability

Suitable for the detection of formaldehyde in urine and other biological samples.

Principle

The Formaldehyde Assay kit provides a simple and direct procedure for measuring formaldehyde levels in urine and other biological samples. In this assay, formaldehyde is derivatized with acetoacetanilide in the presence of ammonia resulting in a fluorescent (λex = 370/λem = 470 nm) product, proportional to the formaldehyde present.
