PARP Universal Colorimetric Assay Kit


The PARP Universal Colorimetric Assay Kit is ideal for the in vitro screening of candidate PARP-1 inhibitors and determination of IC50 values.

Available Size(s): 96 tests Catalog Number: 4677-096-K Category:


This ELISA based assay detects biotinylated poly (ADP-ribose) deposited by PARP-1 onto immobilized histones in a 96-well format. The addition of Strep-HRP (biotin-binding protein) and a colorimetric HRP substrate yields relative absorbance that correlates with PARP-1 activity.


  • Colorimetric readout
  • 96 strip-well format
  • Sensitive – detects 10 mU PARP /well
  • Assay Time ~3 hrs

For the in vitro screening of candidate PARP-1 inhibitors and determination of IC50 values.
