Product code: K-ASCO

The Ascorbic Acid (L-Ascorbate) assay kit is for the specific measurement and analysis of L-ascorbic acid in beverages, meat, flour, dairy and vegetable products.


Colourimetric method for the determination of L-Ascorbic Acid in foodstuffs, feed, wine and other materials

                        (5-methylphenazinium methosulphate)
(1) L-Ascorbic acid + R-H2 + MTT → dehydroascorbate +                                                                                         MTT-formazan + H+
                            (ascorbic acid oxidase)
(2) L-Ascorbic acid + ½O2 → dehydroascorbate + H2O

Kit size:        * 40 assays (manual) / 400 (microplate)/ 400 (auto-analyser)

The number of manual tests per kit can be doubled if all volumes are halved.
This can be readily accommodated using the MegaQuantTM Wave
