Lipid Accumulation Kits

Lipid Accumulation Kits

The Adipogenesis Assay kits provide the tools to study the compounds that stimulate cultured human adipocyte differentiation or lipogenesis. Such compounds may be PPARγ agonists or a combination of thiazolidinediones and glucocorticoids that are potentially useful in the treatment of diabetes. The kits are available to test potential PPARγ agonists or glucocorticoid analogs in human cells in a 96 well format.

The triglyceride assay kits provide quantitative data on triglyceride accumulation in cultured cells. This assay is suitable for both human and animal primary cells and cell lines. All kits are 96 well format. Contact ZenBio for information on other formats.
