Transcreener® Biochemical Kinase Assay Kits

Biochemical kinase assay kits from BellBrook Labs provide a simple tool for measuring kinase activity in a high throughput format. Kinase enzymes transfer phosphate groups from ATP to a substrate leaving ADP and phosphorylated product. As a universal kinase activity assay, the Transcreener platform relies on direct detection of ADP with a specific antibody to measure enzyme kinetics. Direct detection eliminates complex coupling steps that cause compound interference and add time to screens. Three fluorescent detection modes are available. Choose the one that best suits your drug discovery needs.

Direct Detection of ADP Allows a Universal Assay Method for Virtually Any Kinase
