Adipocytes, NEFA release (basal)NHA-0001
Adipose tissue is mostly composed of adipocytes and is the major form of energy storage for the body. The primary functions of these cells are to store triglycerides when there is an excessive supply of energy metabolites and to mobilize these reserves in case of starvation. Adipose tissue lipolysis is a fat destocking mechanism which causes the release of glycerol and non-esterified fatty acids (NEFA), both thus used as sources of energy by the other cells and tissues.
The purpose of this assay is to evaluate the stimulating effect of compounds (molecules, active ingredients, extracts, etc.) on lipolysis (slimming effect) by photometric determination of the rate of non-esterified fatty acids (NEFA) released by normal human hypodermic adipocytes (ex vivo).

Price: our pricing system consists of a fixed price per study + pricing per unit (price per replicate or experimental condition)
Start of assays and turnaround time: the start of an assay is subject to the receipt of your agreement and of the compounds to be tested. The sending date of the study report is communicated by email when the study starts. Although of an average of 5 to 10 weeks, our turnaround time may be subject to some fluctuation (due to availability of biological samples, to workload, etc.).
Required quantity of compounds: the required quantity is generally of a few mg or ml but may vary according to the form and solubility of compounds and to the concentrations to be tested. Please contact us for an estimation.
Customized protocols: for this assay, as for all of our assays, we can develop a protocol adapted to your needs. Should you have any question, please contact us.
Validation: the assays listed in the catalogue have undergone a preliminary validation and are subject to Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and to validation criteria. However, the robustness of each assay may be different according to the models and to the analytical methods. Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
