Fructose Assay Kit (Colorimetric)

Fructose Assay Kit (Colorimetric)


MILPITAS, Calif. - Feb. 22, 2018 - PRLog -- Fructose is a monosaccharide found in many foods and is one of the three most important blood sugars along with glucose and galactose. Fructose is the sweetest naturally occurring sugar, estimated to be twice as sweet as sucrose, although it has a much lower glycemic index than both sucrose and glucose. For these reasons, fructose has been investigated as a food sweetener, and its downstream metabolic effects are of considerable interest. Studies have shown that fructose levels may correlate with cardiometabolic disease, gout, and liver function. BioVision's Fructose Assay Kit utilizes an enzymatic mechanism by which a highly specific enzyme metabolizes fructose, and then a developer is used to generate the proportional colorimetric signal that can be quantified at 570 nm. The assay shows greater than 100-fold specificity for Fructose over glucose and other sugars, both mono- and polysaccharides. The method is suitable for use in a range of biological and culinary samples, and can detect as lower than 0.1 nmole (~15 ng) Fructose.

Figure: Fructose in beverages: Apple Cider or Cola from a soda fountain was diluted 1:200 with dH2O, and 2-10 µl of the dilutions were assayed using the kit protocol. Values were averaged to give presented data.
