General description

Glucose is a primary energy source that naturally occurs in its free state in fruits and other plant parts. Abnormal glucose levels have been associated with several metabolic dysfunctions such as hypoglycemia, hyperglycemia, and diabetes mellitus. Measurements of glucose levels in tissues and body fluids (such as blood and urine) are often used for the diagnosis of glucose– related disorders. Glucose levels are also monitored to check the efficacy of therapeutics such as insulin and sulphonylureas in type 2 diabetics.

Features and Benefits

Compatible with high-throughput handling systems.

Suitability

Suitable for the determination of glucose concentrations in various biological samples, including serum, plasma, food, or growth medium. This kit is also suitable for monitoring glucose levels during fermentation and glucose feeding in protein expression processes.

Principle

Glucose is oxidized to generate a colorimetric (570 nm)/ fluorometric (λex = 535/λem = 587 nm) product, proportional to the amount of glucose present. The kit is able to detect 1-10,000 μM of glucose in various samples.
