Cosmeceuticals

ZenBio offers two research kits to test compounds for their potential use in as cellulite or wrinkle treatments. The assays allow scientists to target the subcutaneous fat layer to alter the outward appearance of skin.

  • ABTS Antioxidant Assay Kit
    The ZenBio ABTS Antioxidant Assay Kit can be used to determine the total antioxidant capacity of biological fluids, cells, and tissue. It can also be used to assay the antioxidant activity of naturally occurring or synthetic compounds for use as dietary supplements, topical protection, and therapeutics
  • Anti-Cellulite Screening
    This kit provides a tool to study chemical compounds that may influence lipolysis in cultured human adipocytes. This kit specifically measures both the non-esterified fatty acids (free fatty acids) and the glycerol released by the breakdown of triglyceride.
  • Anti-Wrinkle Screening
    This kit is designed to test compounds as potential PPAR. agonists. It is our experience that the PPAR. agonist used as the Positive Control sufficiently stimulates human adipocyte differentiation after 7 days of treatment.
  • ORAC Antioxidant Assay Kit
    The ZenBio ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) Antioxidant Assay Kit can be used to determine the total antioxidant capacity of biological fluids, cells, and tissue. It can also be used to assay the antioxidant activity of naturally occurring or synthetic compounds for use as dietary supplements, topical protection, and therapeutics

Metabolic Disease

ZenBio offers a variety of kits for testing compounds as potential obesity or diabetes therapies. Compounds can be screened in human adipocytes or the rodent 3T3-L1 cell line.

  • Lipid Accumulation
    The Adipogenesis Assay kits provide the tools to study the compounds that stimulate cultured human adipocyte differentiation or lipogenesis.
  • Lipolysis
    Our lipolysis assay kits provide the tool to study chemical compounds that may influence lipolysis in cultured human or 3T3-L1 adipocytes. Kits are available with and without a plate of cells. Kits can measure the glycerol and/or free fatty acids released in lipolysis.
  • Protein Expression
    Adipocytes (fat cells) express a variety of proteins that function in the homeostatic control of glucose and lipid metabolism. Insulin regulates the translocation and secretion of many of these proteins in response...
  • Serum / Plasma Fatty Acid & Glycerol Detection Kits
    ZenBio offers kits to analyze the levels of NEFA, glycerol, or both in human and animal serum or plasma. The kits are designed for use in a 96-well format and 1 to 10 l of sample Through a two step addition process, the level of NEFA can be quantified relative to a standard curve
