A robust assay for the quantification of carbohydrates
Catalog #: K2049
$525.00

Product Details

Cat # +Size K2049-100
Size 100 assays
Kit Summary BioVision’s High Sensitivity Carbohydrate Assay Kit is a simple, sensitive, robust assay for the quantification of carbohydrates even when present in low concentration. The assay can be used for the quantitative determination of any carbohydrates that contain neutral sugars and uronic acids. The reaction is a modification of phenol-sulfuric acid method. In this assay, carbohydrates are hydrolyzed and converted to hydroxyfurfural and furfural, which then react with a highly sensitive developer to form a colored complex, detected spectrophotometrically at 500 nm.
Detection Method Absorbance at 500 nm
Species Reactivity All
Applications Quantitation of total carbohydrate in vaccines and various samples.
Features & Benefits • The reaction is a modification of phenol-sulfuric acid method.
