Description

Product Description

3,3′,5,5′-Tetramethylbenzidine (TMB) is a noncarcinogenic substitute (Ames test negative) for benzidine suitable as peroxidase substrate for use in ELISA procedures. The substrate produces a soluble end product that is pale blue in color and can be read spectrophotometrically at 370 or 620-650 nm. The TMB reaction may be stopped with 2 M H2SO4 (resulting in a yellow color), and read at 450 nm. A sensitive and specific reagent for the detection of blood, assay of hemoglobin, assay of peroxidases.

Application Notes

TMB is a substrate for horseradish peroxidase. Develops a soluble blue reaction product that may be read at 370 or 655 nm. For endpoint assays the reaction may be stopped with acid, forming a yellow reaction product that may be read at 450 nm. Recommended for ELISA (microwell) procedures, not recommended for membrane applications.
