New release! Acylcarnitine assay

Acylcarnitines are the connecting piece between cellular malfunction due to mitochondrial energy imbalances and its physiological outcome – a set of universal markers for energy homeostasis across generations.

biocrates offers a new sensitive and quantitative assay to measure 44 acylcarnitins.

Metabolite of the month - Kynurenine

In this format, one of our scientists looks at one specific metabolite every month. Topics of discussion include the metabolites biosynthesis, fate, and its role or behavior in health and/or disbalanced states. In this month´s article, Alice took a closer look at the amino acid kynurenine.
