3,3',5,5'-Tetramethylbenzidine Application Notes 3,3',5,5'-Tetramethylbenzidine is 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. It is useful in gel staining procedure for low levels of home-associated peroxidases and for enzyme immunoassay of horseradish peroxidase. Usage Statement Unless specified otherwise, MP Biomedical's products are for research or further manufacturing use only, not for direct human use.
