Nickel is one of the most common of the metallic elements in the earth’s crust, 2nd only to iron. A number of enzymes utilize nickel as part of the active
site, as a mononuclear (glyoxalase I, superoxide dismutase); dinuclear (urease); or more complex heteronuclear cluster (several hydrogenases and
dehydrogenases). We take advantage of Nickel’s ability to form complexes with sulfhydryl compounds which possess absorbance bands in the UV/visible
region. AkrivisBio’s Nickel Assay is a simple, sensitive way to quantify Ni2+ in a wide range of sample types. Since other ions also exhibit similar behavior
with sulfur-containing chemicals, a differential absorbance method is used to correct for interfering substances.
