This kit is for the quantitative, enzymatic determination of glucose in food and other material. Glucose is phosphorylated by adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in the reaction catalyzed by hexokinase. Glucose-6-phosphate (G6P) is then oxidized to 6-phospho-gluconate in the presence of oxidized nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) in a reaction catalyzed by glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PDH). During this oxidation, an equimolar amount of NAD is reduced to NADH. The consequent increase in absorbance at 340 nm is directly proportional to glucose concentration.

  1. How do I determine what sample size to use in the Glucose (HK) Assay Kit, Product GAHK20?

    If you know approximately how much glucose is present, dilute the sample down to 0.5 to 50 ug of glucose and use between 10 to 200 ul sample volume.  If you do not know how much glucose is present, you should assay the undiluted sample and dilutions of it.  Based on the dilution factor you can determine the glucose concentration.

  2. Can the procedure for Glucose (HK) Assay Kit, Product GAHK20, be scaled down?

    Although we have not done it, you should be able to scale down the procedure as long as you have pipettes capable of dispensing accurate ul volume quantities and an instrument that can monitor the 340 nm wavelength.

  3. If my sample for the Glucose (HK) Assay Kit, Product GAHK20, has a lot of protein, how do I deproteinize it?

    You can deproteinize by using barium hydroxide, B4059, and zinc sulfate, Z2876, by adding 0.2 ml of sample to 1.8 ml of water, swirl and mix, then 1.0 ml of barium hydroxide, swirl and mix, then 1.0 ml of zinc sulfate, swirl and mix thoroughly by shaking, and then filter or centrifuge to obtain clear filtrate.

  4. How do I decolorize a solution for use with Product GAHK20, Glucose (HK) Assay Kit?

    You can decolorize a solution by adding a small amount of charcoal to the solution, swirl, then filter or centrifuge to remove charcoal.

  5. How do I degas a solution for use with Product GAHK20, Glucose (HK) Assay Kit?

    You can degas a solution by either putting it under a vacuum or by bubbling nitrogen through it.

  6. Which document(s) contains shelf-life or expiration date information for a given product?

    If available for a given product, the recommended re-test date or the expiration date can be found on the Certificate of Analysis.

  7. How do I get lot-specific information or a Certificate of Analysis?

    The lot specific COA document can be found by entering the lot number above under the "Documents" section.

  8. How do I find price and availability?
