K-BGLU | Beta-Glucan Assay Kit (100 Assays)

Product code: K-BGLU

The Beta-Glucan test kit is suitable for the measurement and analysis of Beta-Glucan (Mixed Linkage). For the measurement of 1,3:1,4-β-D-glucan in cereal grains, milling fractions, wort, beer and other food products.



Colourimetric method for the determination of β-Glucan in cereal grains, feed, foodstuffs, beverages and other materials

(1) β-Glucan + H2O → β-gluco-oligosaccharides

(2) β-Gluco-oligosaccharides + H2O → D-glucose

(glucose oxidase)
(3) D-Glucose + H2O + O2 → D-gluconate + H2O2

(4) 2H2O2 + p-hydroxybenzoic acid + 4-aminoantipyrine →
quinoneimine + 4H2O
