          BackgroundFree radicals are highly reactive molecules generated by the biochemical redox reactions that occur as part of normal cell metabolism, and by exposure to environmental factors such as UV light, cigarette smoke, environmental pollutants and gamma radiation. Once formed, free radicals attack cell structures in the body. As a result, free radicals have been implicated in numerous diseases, including cancer, atherosclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, liver damage, and central nervous system disorders.
          Principles of the assayThe Total Antioxidant Status Kit is dependent on antioxidants in the sample inhibiting the oxidation of ABTS™ (2,2'-Azino-di-[3-ethylbenz-thiazoline sulphonate]) substrate to ABTS™+ product by metmyoglobin (a peroxidase). The amount of ABTS™+ product can be monitored by reading the absorbance at 600 nm. Under the reaction conditions used, the antioxidants in the sample cause suppression of the absorbance at 600 nm to a degree that is proportional to their concentration.

          Precautions and recommendations All pipettes should be thoroughly cleaned before use. Water used in the assay must be as pure as possible, the minimum standard being double-deionized water.
          Ensure that all pipettes have been accurately calibrated and are dispensing the correct volume.
          Ensure that all glassware and disposables are free from contamination, especially from hypochlorite and detergents.
          Check the temperature of the equipment being used for incubation of the samples.
          Time the reaction carefully. The absorbance changes very rapidly, and any delay in taking the reading can lead to a substantial error.
          Ensure that there has been no loss of standard material upon opening the vial. The standard is supplied in lyophilized form, and the vials are, therefore, under vacuum. The stopper must be removed slowly to allow air to enter the vial gradually; otherwise there is a risk that material will be lost. In addition, before the stopper is fully removed, the bottle should be sharply tapped on the bench several times to dislodge any material adhering to the stopper. The stopper should then be removed and placed flat side down on the bench while the appropriate volume is dispensed into the vial for reconstitution. The stopper should then be replaced and the contents mixed, ensuring that the liquid comes into contact with the stopper, so that any material adhering to the stopper is dissolved.
          Reagent preparation Chromogen: Add 10 ml Buffer to each vial of Chromogen needed for the assay (10 tests per vial). After reconstitution, the Chromogen is stable for 2 days at 4°C or 8 h at room temperature.
          Substrate: Dilute each vial of Substrate needed for the assay by adding 7.5 ml Buffer. After dilution, the substrate is stable for 24 h at 4°C. NOTE: Some automated methods do not require substrate dilution.
          Standard: Add 1 ml distilled water to each vial of Standard needed for the assay. After reconstitution, the Standard is stable for 2 days at 4°C or 1 month at -20°C.
          Detailed protocol1. Zero the spectrophotometer at 600 nm against air and set temperature to 37°C. Equilibrate the diluted Substrate and Chromogen at 37°C for 5 min just prior to use. NOTE: It is advisable to equilibrate only the amount of each reagent necessary for the assays to be performed. A temperature of 37°C must be maintained throughout the assay.
          2. Add the following to a cuvette:

          Table 1: Addition of Reagents


          3. Mix well and read the initial absorbance (Ao)
          4. Add 200 µl diluted Substrate to each cuvette. Mix and start the timer simultaneously.
          5. Read the absorbance after exactly 3 min (A)
          CalculationsCalculation of Total Antioxidant Status The antioxidant concentration of the Standard is used to calculate the antioxidant levels in the samples.

          1. Determine the ΔA for the samples, standard, and blank. ΔA = A - Ao
          2. Calculate the concentration of antioxidants in the sample using the formula below:

          Figure 2: Antioxidant Concentration Formula


          NOTE: If the antioxidant concentration is greater than 2.5 mM dilute the sample with 0.9% NaCl and re-assay. Typical antioxidant levels in normal human plasma are 1.30-1.77 mM.
          Sensitivity NotesTypically serum or plasma samples of 20 µl are sufficient when using the manual method. Samples of 5 µl are typically sufficient when using an automated analyzer. The assay is linear for antioxidant levels less than 2.5 mM.
          Assay Range0-25 nmol/10 µl plasma
          PrecisionIntra-assay coefficient of variation = 1.2% (mean = 1.37 mM; n = 20)
          Inter-assay coefficient of variation = 2.4% (mean = 1.35 mM; n = 18).
